Wearing her Atelier Versace butterfly dress, Dua Lipa, 25, won the top pop prize during Sunday's Grammys for her pandemic soundtrack Future Nostalgia, reported People.

"This is insane. Future Nostalgia means the absolute world to me and it has changed my life in so many ways," the 25-year-old said, accepting the award. "One thing that I've really come to realize is how much happiness is so important. I felt really jaded at the end of my last album where I felt like I only had to make sad music to feel like it mattered."

"I'm just so grateful and so honored because happiness is something that we all deserve, and that's something that we all need in our lives," she added.

The 11-track Future Nostalgia offers neither features nor filler, and makes a strident case for Lipa as a pop visionary, not a vessel.

The varying quality and sound of Lipa’s long-in-the-making debut was a real-time document of how modern pop stars have to evolve in public. Presumably emboldened by her success, on Future Nostalgia, Lipa sticks to the titular theme. Occasionally, too literally – the kitsch title track cites futurist American architect John Lautner, too arcane a reference for a pop song – but otherwise her fusion of disco and ruthlessly efficient contemporary pop is viscerally brilliant.

She anchors these songs with snappy basslines, then makes them transcendent, fully conveying the transformative nature of the romance she’s singing about: Levitating blooms like a row of tropical flowers, while the chorus of Hallucinate, Lipa’s own I Feel Love, seems to enter an interstellar dimension. The references are adroit – Prince-like synth sparkle here, a Gloria Gaynor nod there, giddy INXS sample on Break My Heart – and informed: sounding like a darkwave Olivia Newton-John remix, Physical is ostensibly about sex, but it’s so urgent and almost militaristic, it recalls the role of dance music in the Aids crisis when physicality became a political position, The Guardian cites.

What Lipa’s powerful voice lacks in emotional nuance she makes up for with command: she never sounds like someone who’s “losing all my cool” (Cool), but she’s great at awestruck (Love Again), toxic allure (exes-with-benefits confession Good in Bed, which sounds oddly like early Lily Allen) and delicious spoken-word camp.

The grandiose closer, Boys Will Be Boys, a lament over male violence, could have used more of the latter: Lipa’s point would be better made with Queen-like cheek, not an earnest kids’ choir, but her one-off impulse to Make A Statement is the only predictable 2020 pop move on an otherwise outlandishly great second album.

Here is full lyrics of "Future Nostalgia" - Dua Lipa:

"You want a timeless song, I wanna change the game

Like modern architecture, John Lautner coming your way

I know you like this beat 'cause Jeff been doing the damn thing

You wanna turn it up loud, future nostalgia is the name

(Future nostalgia)

I know you're dying trying to figure me out

My name's on the tip of your tongue, keep running your mouth

You want the recipe but can't handle my sound

My sound, my sound (future)

No matter what you do, I'm gonna get it without ya (hey, hey)

(Future nostalgia)

I know you ain't used to a female alpha (no way, no way)

(Future nostalgia)

No matter what you do, I'm gonna get it without ya (hey, hey)

(Future nostalgia)

I know you ain't used to a female alpha (no way, no way)

(Future nostalgia)

Can't be a Rolling Stone if…"
