Quickies: Dua Lipa, Ava Max & Dove Cameron


DUA LIPA DROPS ‘DON’T START NOW’: Dua Lipa has dropped her new song “Don’t Start Now.” It marks the first new song from Dua’s second studio album, which is expected to be released in the near future. “I chose to put this song out first so I could close one chapter of my life and start another,” Dua said in a statement. “Into a new era with a new sound! It’s about moving on and not allowing anyone to get in the way of that. It also felt like a natural first song choice as I made it with the brilliant same crew I made ‘New Rules’ with.” Dua is confirmed to perform at the 2019 ARIA Awards, to be held November 2nd at the Star Event Centre in Sydney. The British pop artist is the second international booked to perform at the Australian recording industry’s flagship ceremony, after Halsey.
