Dua Lipa Delivers A Dark, Electro Cover Of “Bang Bang”
Dua Lipa signed on as the face of Italian fashion brand Patrizia Pepe in August. She models their AW line in a photo shoot and delivers a cover of Cher or Nancy Sinatra’s (choose your preferred version) in a new commercial. This song has been done to death over the years, but the hitmaker breathes new life into it courtesy of dark and brooding electronic-production and a typically smoldering vocal. I really want to hear the full version. At this point, the 22-year-old can do no wrong.
After releasing five singles from her debut LP, Dua caught lightning in a bottle with the sixth. “New Rules” started to gain traction when video went viral and has subsequently become a streaming sensation. It recently topped the charts in the UK and is well on its way to repeating that feat in the US with rising pop radio airplay and a steady ascent on iTunes. She is supporting the song with a string of US headline tour dates, which kick off on November 20 in Boston, MA. Listen to her new cover up top.
