Dua Lipa has unveiled, somewhat by surprise, a new song titled “Can They Hear Us”. It’s not the beginning of a new album, but a track on the soundtrack of the movie Gully by director Nabil Elderkin, who already worked with the singer on the video for “Don’t Start Now”.
The Gully soundtrack album does not only feature Dua Lipa’s song. It includes “Betrayed” by 21 Savage, “Blacks n Mexicans” by Ty Dolla $ign, Schoolboy Q and B-Real as well as tracks by Snoh Aalegra, Gary Clark Jr, 2 Chainz, Don Toliver, Sleepy Rose, Mike Will Made-It and Buddy.
The film, which will star Amber Heard and Travis Scott, promises to have a great soundtrack.
It’s been a banner year for the British singer. Her album Future Nostalgia won the Grammy for ‘Best Pop Vocal Album’ and she performed “Don’t Start Now” and “Levitating” at the ceremony. Her record company boss has also made no secret of the fact that Future Nostalgia is still going strong worldwide.
“It’s The ‘Terminator’ of albums, it just cannot be stopped!” said Joe Kentish, the new president of Warner Records UK, of the 2020 album. “Every time we think it’s down, another single pops off in another territory or on another platform. And her work ethic is legendary. We use her as an example to other artists at the label and I know her management company, Tap Music, do the same”
