Albanian singer Dua Lipa has been one of the most popular singers in the current decade. She started as a model, worked as a cocktail waitress, and uploaded original songs and covers to the internet. She got one of her biggest breaks way back in 2014 when she signed with Warner Bros. Records. Since then, her career has been on the high. Meanwhile, in this listicle, we will discuss her top five hits.

Top 5 Superhits by Dua Lipa

1. One Kiss with Calvin Harris

In 2018, this song peaked at number one in the United Kingdom and was the longest-running number-one single in the same year by a female artist. This led to Dua winning the Brit Award for Song of the Year. During an interview for NOVA FM, Lipa revealed the song came to be after Calvin Harris reached out while she was in Jamaica. It's a persuasive love song with simple lyrics, but the music production is what makes this song a bouncy hit.

2. New Rules

Considered a breakup anthem, "New Rules" is a song about staying away from an ex despite their attempts to get back together with you. It's also a mental health-positive song, as it affirms using self-talk to fix problems and setting clear boundaries for yourself. As of March 2021, it is the most streamed song by a British female in the U.K. It peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has also gained multi-platinum status in 12 territories.

3. Blow Your Mind 

While the lyrics of this song suggest it's about Lipa finding power in a messy relationship strung together by one-night stands, "Blow Your Mind" is actually about being proud of who you are and embracing change. It was written by Lipa, Lauren Christy, and Jon Levine, and was inspired by Lipa's experiences in the modelling industry.  

4. Hallucinate

Critics have compared this song to Madonna's 2005 album Confessions on a Dance Floor, specifically the tracks "Get Together" and "Future Lovers." The song was co-produced by Stuart Price and the funky beat was made by producer SG Lewis. Dua Lipa has said "Hallucinate" is her "festival song" because of how fun it is.

5. Electricity 

Created with the help of production duo Silk City (Diplo and Mark Ronson), "Electricity" is a joyful gospel-esque song about the tingling sensation of falling in love. It's fun, fresh, and a little bit spiritual. The loud keys and beat make it very danceable. In only a few months, it went from a club song to a Top 40 radio hit. And in 2019, it won the Grammy for Best Dance Recording.
