Dua Lipa wrote on Instagram that she is honored that her second studio album, Future Nostalgia, is shortlisted for the Hyundai Mercury Prize. She expressed her excitement and joked that she was crying after finding out the news.
The album was released on March 27 by Warner Records and has enjoyed a positive reception. It became the British musician's first chart-topping release, as it hit No. 1 on the U.K. charts, according to Official Charts. This is a huge step up from her self-titled debut, which peaked in third place. This is more evidence that 2020 is Dua's time to shine, as Future Nostalgia was the first record by a solo female artist to hit the No. 1 spot on the charts in 2020. The latest single from Future Nostalgia,"Hallucinate," was released on July 10.
