Behind The Beats: Dua Lipa & Silk City's 'Electricity'
Newest single from Dua Lipa Electricity is already creeping up the charts and becoming an instant smash. Let's go behind the beats.
Dua Lipa has obviously had a huge year with singles New Rules followed by IDGAF, but it seems we're finally coming to the end of the self-titled era. Dua is re-releasing her debut album and adding a few more tracks to create the 'super deluxe' including her collabs Scared to Be Lonely with Martin Garrix and One Kiss with Calvin Harris.
The tracklist will also feature a brand new song with KPOP girl group, BLACKPINK and also her newest single that has just dropped, Electricity, in collaboration with Silk City - a duo made up of Diplo and Mark Ronson.
The music video for Electricity has dropped and it's pretty sick. The video is set in the famous New York City blackout of 2003 where Dua is seen in a loft apartment. The concept of the video is that Dua is the conductor of electricity so as she's moving around the apartment, the lights start to turn back on and attract the attention of passers-by on the street. (Including Mark Ronson and Diplo)
Electricity features Mark Ronson, who is the mastermind behind a lot of popular tracks with Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse and Diplo who has been apart of projects before incuding Jack Ü with Skrillex and currently makes music with Labrinth and Sia under the name LSD.
Not only do we have Diplo and Ronson at the forefront of this track, there's a major buffet of majorly talented writers and producers on it too.
As well as Dua Lipa, Diana Gordon (formerly known as Wynter Gordon) is behind Electricity too. She co-wrote many tracks on Beyoncé's Lemonade. Also behind it, Blender Jnr. and Maxime Picard who were both a part of smash hit with Major Lazer, Cold Water ft. Justin Bieber.
You've also got Romy Croft from The XX who has written for Rihanna before and Swedish production duo, Jarami, who produced Frank Ocean's new stuff and some tracks for Kanye West. And lastly, Clement Picard who's worked with Kehlani and has also collabed with Diplo prior to Electricity.
There's no wonder Electricity is already climbing up the charts and leaving everyone else in it's dust.
Here's to Dua Lipa's new era!
