Dua Lipa is on the cover of the TIME100 Next issue.
Kylie Minouge wrote in her tribute to her “Real Groove” collaborator, “Just under four years ago, she released the first of her two albums. Today, she is dancing hand in hand with the zeitgeist, having carved with laser-like precision her place in the cultural landscape.”
The Grammy winner continued, “I entered Dua’s orbit last November when I appeared as a guest on her Studio 2054 streamed concert. The production was spectacular and inclusive, somehow both future and retro, with her instantly recognizable voice stamped all over clever songwriting. While I know what it’s like to be in the eye of the storm, on this occasion, I was able to see the wider view from the periphery. Her famous work ethic radiated throughout the production.”
Other artists to make the list include Florence Pugh, Doja Cat, Chloe x Halle and Olivia Rodrigo.
Gwen Stefani wrote of Rodrigo, “For anyone going through their first heartbreak, Olivia Rodrigo’s voice is a light in the dark, a promise that your pain can someday become a deep source of power.”
The Next 100 Most Influential People issue is an expansion of the flagship TIME100 franchise and highlights 100 emerging leaders who are shaping the future.
