Levitating (ft. Madonna & Missy Elliott)

by Andrew MacGregor

Dua Lipa: “Levitating (ft. Madonna & Missy Elliott)” - 4 mins 17s

Not one to rest on her laurels (even during a pandemic), Dua Lipa has already completed a remix of this year's critically acclaimed 'Future Nostalgia' album. Her thrumming new take on 'Levitating' features vocals from Madonna and Missy Elliott, no less, and also receives a luminous promo courtesy of Will Hooper.

The director runs with 'Club Future Nostalgia''s eclectic make-up, flitting between Lipa's analogue-digital apartment, a radioactive meteor crash site, and teenage longing through the eye of a telescope. Missy Elliott's smoky cameo is somewhat jarring, but her potent contribution only strengthens the track's throwback qualities.
