Dua Lipa and James Corden established “new rules” for dating amid the COVID-19 pandemic in a parody song on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
During Thursday’s episode of the CBS late-night show, Lipa and Corden updated the lyrics to Lipa’s songs “Don’t Start Now” and “New Rules” to reflect the health crisis. “What a year for dating / Crazy / Nothing is the way it was,” Lipa sings. “People texting exes / Sex pics / From the basement of their mom’s,” Corden adds.
The segment features footage of Lipa and Corden performing, along with a man and woman attempting to date amid the pandemic. Lipa and Corden then lay out the new rules of dating in-person, including “six feet apart, no mating” and “before you touch, Purell until your hands get rough.”
“New Rules” appears on Lipa’s 2017 debut, self-titled album, while “Don’t Start Now” hails from Lipa’s second album, Future Nostalgia, released in March.
