Dua Lipa is one of this generation’s most popular pop stars out there. Her hits like “Levitating,” “New Rules,” “One Kiss,” and the most famous one, “Don’t Start Now,” have dominated the charts.
Not one to shy away from a revamp, Dua has mixed elements of R&B, rock, and disco into a sound that’s uniquely her own. Now, her new music era is around the corner with her upcoming third album, which is being compared to one pop star’s magnum opus.
And while the now deleted “key-in-mouth” post was a bit of unfortunate promo, a new post on X is causing some divisive reactions as well. The account @ChartsDuaLipa wrote “Forbes describes @DUALIPA’s new album as the “British Lemonade” and now fans have a few words about this claim.
For starters, Lemonade is Beyoncé’s sixth studio album and labeled as one her most raw and acclaimed albums within her career. Lemonade covered Beyoncé’s emotional journey in response to her husband’s, Jay-Z, infidelity, while doing so within a generational and Black woman context.
Besides being labeled one of the greatest albums of all time, it’s also deeply connected to Black women and Black southern heritage within the United States. So when @ChartsDuaLipa claimed that Forbes called Dua’s upcoming album a “British Lemonade,” fans couldn’t help, but share their thoughts about the English-Albanian singer’s new project.
But beyond thoughts, they also shared what lyrics from songs from Lemonade would be, if written in a British context. And well, they’re pretty clever and comical.
While this may have just been an attempt from an X account to start a fight between The BeyHive and Dua’s fans, it instead created some hilarious posts. We’ll still listen to the new album when it comes out, Dua.
These two are their own separate superstars. Incomparable, even if you tried (and they tried). One just happens to be an icon and the other a pop star.
