The 2021 GRAMMYs may have delivered a number of stunning wins, jaw-dropping snubs, and high octane stage performances, but few are getting the chatter given to Dua Lipa.
In addition to nabbing a victory in the Best Pop Vocal Album category for her sophomore LP, ‘Future Nostalgia’ (which marks her third GRAMMY win overall), Lipa left tongues wagging after her spirited stage showing – performing a medley of her hits ‘Levitating’ (alongside rapper DaBaby) and ‘Don’t Start Now.’
Viewers were particularly drawn to the latter portion of the medley it seems as the tune has popped to the top of Pop iTunes!
Having enjoyed a #2 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 last year, ‘Don’t Start Now’ – the lead single from ‘Nostalgia’ – already boasts being Dua’s biggest hit. Now, thanks to rejuvenated sales generated by Sunday night’s performance (March 14), the Ian Kirkpatrick-produced song may be set for a rebound on the tally.
At the time of this report, the real-time Pop iTunes sales chart shows ‘Start’ sitting at #1 and ‘Levitating’ close behind at #3.
