Dua Lipa has picked up three trophies at the Global Awards 2021.
Following the success of her second album Future Nostalgia, Dua Lipa triumphed by winning Best Female, Best British Artist and Most Played Song (Don’t Start Now) across Global’s radio stations in 2020.
Dua Lipa said: “I want to say thank you so much to my fans, I want to say thank you to my team, I want to say thank you to Ashley [Tabor-King] and everyone at Global. This is so exciting. Obviously I would have loved to have come and party with you guys, but we’ll have to do that again next year. Thank you, thank you so much! Now to jazz up my living room with these!”
