Live Photos: Dua Lipa in New York City

Despite the fact that Dua Lipa’s debut album won’t release until mid February, the British pop upstart is already aggregating a metric ton of buzz and six million monthly listeners on Spotify. It’s not hard to hear why; her smokey vocals on singles “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” and “Hotter Than Hell” lean more to nuanced, soul-laced acts like Amy Winehouse, an alum of Sylvia Young Theater School alongside Lipa. Merged with slick club-friendly production, Lipa’s sound should jolt the dead of winter with a dose of radio-friendly scorching pop sunshine. Paste photographer DeShaun Craddock caught that energy first-hand when he captured Lipa during her opening slot for Troye Sivan earlier this week at Terminal 5.
