Dua Lipa Won't Believe New Single's ‘Illusion’

On psychedelic dance hit “Illusion,” Dua Lipa reminds you who she is. Radical Optimism is her third album, released May 3.   

Like “Houdini” and “Training Season,” “Illusion” is a huge, bold dance music that draws from the psychedelic and rave inspirations that inspired her latest album.    

She shows she knows true from false on it. You doing what?“Don’t know who you think you’re confusing/I be like,   

‘Ooh, it’s amusing’/You think I’ll fall for an illusion,” she sings on the catchy hook. The video shows Lipa and her dancers dancing beside a huge pool with a city skyline.   

Star surrounded by men plunging into the pool cuts to Lipa in the water with synchronized swimmers saying, 

“I already know your type, think you can play your cards right/Don't you know I could do this dance all night?” 

Lipa released “Houdini” in November to launch her new album. In an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year, she said Radical Optimism would be a tribute to UK rave culture, drawing inspiration from Massive Attack and Primal Scream while singing about her breakup.   

“I want to capture the essence of youth and freedom and having fun and just letting things happen, whether it's good or bad,” she said of the “raw” new album. You can't change it. You just have to accept life's challenges.”
