Clean Bandit Mashes Up Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” & Sisqo’s “Thong Song” On Live Lounge

Clean Bandit stopped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge to perform a wild mashup of Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” and Sisqo’s “Thong Song.” Opening with an orchestral rendition of the summer’s defining breakup anthem, things took a turn for the unexpected as the group incorporated elements of 2000’s raunchy bop to the mix. The medley worked surprisingly well and is definitely a fun effort. It is hardly surprising considering the innovative hitmakers are always pushing to keep things interesting with their fierce productions. This is just more proof of what they are capable of.

After their surprise mashup, Julia Michaels joined the group to perform their moody collaboration, “I Miss You.” Although they delivered a performance of the emotional midtempo during a medley at Sunday’s (November 12) MTV EMAs, the “Issues” siren seemed a little more relaxed in Live Lounge’s studio. Her vocals were as strong as ever over the captivating production. Hopefully the performance gives the track a push on the charts because it could shape up to be another chart topper.
