Global Superstar Dua Lipa Up For Three BRIT Awards

Dua Lipa is up for three BRIT Awards, along with Arlo Parks, Joel Corry and Young T & Bugsey.

In 2018, Lipa made BRIT Award history as the first female artist to pick up five nominations, with two wins for British Breakthrough Act and British Female Solo Artist. At this year's ceremony, the 25 year-old superstar has been shortlisted in the Female Solo Artist category as well as British Single with Mastercard for her hit 'Physical' and the Mastercard Album accolade for her second LP, Future Nostalgia.

Parks, 20, is up for the Breakthrough Artist prize, and she will battle Lipa for the Female Solo Artist gong and the Mastercard Album award as her debut record Collapsed in Sunbeams has been nominated. Celeste's Not Your Muse, J Hus' Big Conspiracy and Jessie Ware's What's Your Pleasure? complete the shortlist for the night's most coveted accolade.

Elsewhere, AJ Tracey will take on Joel, J Hus, Yungblud and Headie One in the Male Solo Artist category, whilst the London rapper also has two tracks in the shortlist for British Single with Mastercard; 'Rain' which he recorded with Aitch and Tay Keith and 'Ain't It Different,' which also features Stormzy and Headie One.

Also representing the UK rap scene with three nominations are Young T & Bugsey, who are nominated for British Single and Breakthrough Artist, and they will face The 1975, Little Mix, Bicep and Biffy Clyro in the British Group category.

Away from Britain, International Female will be contested by Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Cardi B, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, whilst the International Male gong will be contested by The Weeknd, Childish Gambino, Tame Impala, Burna Boy and Bruce Springsteen, who gets his 11th BRIT nomination.

The BRIT Awards 2021 with Mastercard will take place live at The O2 arena on May 11, with comedian Jack Whitehall presenting for fourth year in a row.

Since the release of her first single in 2015, Lipa has become one of the music world’s hottest young artists. Her eponymous debut album has eclipsed 6 million sales worldwide, with single sales reaching over 80 million and the video for her break-out hit 'New Rules' (“the song that changed my life,” she says), made her the youngest female solo artist to reach one billion views on YouTube.
