“Fever” – Single Review
Dua Lipa is pulling out all the stops to make sure that 2020 is her year. From the release of sophomore album Future Nostalgia, to remix collection Club Future Nostalgia, to a virtual “musical experience” for fans called Studio 2054, the pop star is staying busy.
Her latest project? “Fever,” a collaboration with Belgian singer Angèle. Angèle might be an unknown here in the States, but for French speakers, she’s a huge star. The singer dropped her debut single “Tout Oublier” in 2018 and followed it up with debut album Brol.
“Fever” follows Lipa’s penchant for disco beats and 80s synths. “I’ve got a fever // So can you check?,” Lipa croons on the chorus. “Hand on my forehead // Kiss my neck // And when you touch me, baby, I turn red // I’ve got a fever // So can you check?”
Lipa isn’t just sticking to music releases, though; the singer’s Studio 2054 “experience” will live stream on November 27 on LIVENow. Tickets are currently on sale on the singer’s website, LIVENow and Ticketmaster. The experience will include performances from Lipa, elaborate sets and special guests.
This is definitely not the last we’ll hear from Lipa’s Future Nostalgia era; she responded to a fan’s Instagram comment saying that she has enough material to hold us all the way through 2022.
But wait, there’s more! Dua Lipa is also collabing with Miley Cyrus for a track on her upcoming album. Speaking to Spanish radio station Cadena 100, Cyrus said that the team-up is “perfectly a blend of the both of us” and added: “I’m super proud of it.”
