Dua Lipa found it “surreal” to be in the recording studio with Chris Martin.
The ‘New Rules’ singer had the Coldplay frontman at the top of her wish list for people she’d like to work with, and she was amazed that, not only did she end up in his own Malibu recording facility, the ‘Viva La Vida’ hitmaker – who she went on to write ‘Homesick’ with – was dancing to her songs.
Speaking to GQ magazine, she recalled: “During ‘New Rules’ and ‘IDGAF’, he would get up and dance.
“It was so surreal, Chris Martin dancing to my music.
“I remember saying to him, ‘You’ve written one of my favourite songs ever, the Nelly Furtado song ‘All Good Things (Must Come To An End)” and he was like, ‘God, I forgot I wrote that.'”
The 22-year-old singer has been offered a number of tracks from songwriters which have gone on to top the charts with other artists, but she had no hesitation in turning down the songs as she didn’t feel they fit with her musical style.
