Fresh off of her “Best New Artist” win at the NME awards and making Time’s, Billboard’s, and pretty much every “most anticipated albums of 2017” list known to man, Dua Lipa has released another single from her self-titled debut – out June 2. The Londoner has been climbing up the U.K. charts with five other singles from the forthcoming album, including “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” and “Hotter Than Hell,” in addition to a collaboration with Martin Garrix called “Scared to be Lonely.”
“Thinking ‘Bout You” is a pop ballad with Lipa’s bluesy vocals soaring over an acoustic guitar. “This time Mary Jane won’t save me / I’ve been working later / I’ve been drinking stronger / I’ve been smoking deeper but the memories won’t stop,” sings the lovelorn 21-year-old. The video is a “look at me” series of close-ups on the popstar-in-the-making showing off her trendy tattoos, nails, and eyebrows. A ballad it may be, but “Thinking ‘Bout You” is still catchy as hell. Dua Lipa has come a long way from covering artists like Christina Aguilera and Nelly Furtado online. Now we can’t stop thinking about this damn song.
