Dua Lipa is back with cryptic messages that have her fans buzzing. The pop sensation, known for her chart-topping hits, is dropping hints about her upcoming music. With an intriguing teaser video and mysterious numbers, fans are eager for her next move.
The Cryptic Teaser From Dua Lipa
In a cryptic teaser video, Dua Lipa, known for her bold style, dyed her hair bright red. She’s seen closing her mouth on a gold necklace with a key-shaped pendant. The video includes a quick flash of Polaroids and a series of numbers: 4, 8, 9, 9, 14, 15, and 21.
The teaser is accompanied by a snippet of new music. Dua Lipa sings, “Tell me all the ways you need me,” over a descending piano melody, and a funky bass line kicks in.
A Surprise on Dua’s Website
Dua Lipa’s website is also part of the enigma. Fans are encouraged to “Sign Up” for “happiness, passion, love, joy, optimism, energy,” and “fun.” After providing their phone numbers, fans receive a welcome message, inviting them to join “Dua’s text community.”
Decoding the Clues
Dua Lipa’s fans are already hard at work decoding the numbers from the teaser. Many believe the numbers are a code for the name “Houdini.” This reference is quite fitting, as the famous magician Harry Houdini passed away on Halloween—the same day Dua Lipa’s teaser was revealed.
The gold key necklace in Dua Lipa’s mouth also appears to be a nod to Houdini. During Houdini’s daring escapes, his wife, Bess, would pass him the key to his handcuffs through a kiss. This practice was an essential part of his legendary stunts.
Continuity in Pop Culture
These references to Houdini align with pop culture history. Kate Bush’s 1982 album, “The Dreaming,” features a cover that shows the artist with a key in her mouth, preparing to pass it on to someone. The album also includes a track titled “Houdini.” The interconnected themes of Houdini’s escape acts and the passing of keys via kisses resonate with Dua Lipa’s teaser.
The Anticipation for New Music
Dua Lipa’s upcoming release has been a topic of anticipation for her fans. After the immense success of her sophomore album, “Future Nostalgia,” and hits like “Levitating,” fans have eagerly awaited new music.
Dua Lipa has been dropping hints about her new era for weeks. She cleared her Instagram profile and updated her profile picture, signaling a fresh start. She shared multiple clips featuring a key in her mouth and intriguing captions like, “I’m not here for long” and “Catch me before I go.”
A Highly Anticipated Album
Dua Lipa’s next album, the follow-up to “Future Nostalgia,” has been the subject of speculation. Initially stating that the album was “50 per cent done,” she later clarified her progress. In August, she revealed the album is scheduled for release in 2024.
The album has also stirred rumors of a collaboration with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, something Dua Lipa hasn’t denied. As for the musical direction, she hints that the album will be a departure from her previous work, promising a different sonic experience and a more focused lyrical theme.
Dua Lipa’s musical collaborator, Mark Ronson, couldn’t contain his excitement, describing her new album as “incredible.”
As Dua Lipa continues to tease her fans with cryptic clues and snippets of music, one thing is clear: a new era of her music is on the horizon. Fans eagerly await the release of her mysterious ‘Houdini’ single and, ultimately, her next full album.
