Dua Lipa is an English singer, songwriter, and model who has a net worth of $35 million. After working as a model, she released her first album in 2017 and has since gone on to achieve enormous success in pop music.
Dua Lipa was born in London, England on August 22, 1995. Her parents had moved from Pristina, FR Yugoslavia, (present-day Kosovo) a few years before her birth. Her father Dukagjin Lipa is a marketing manager and lead vocalist for the Kosovan rock band Oda. Her mother, Anesa Lipa, works in tourism. Dua attended the Sylvia Young Theater School part time before the family moved back to Kosovo in 2006 when her father got a job there. Lipa attended the Third Millennium School in Pristina and it was there that she became a fan of the hip hop artists which influenced her music style.
Lipa started her career at 14 by posting cover songs on YouTube of her favorite artists such as Pink and Nelly Furtado. She was inspired by the fact that Justin Bieber’s discovery and fame were attributed to YouTube, and she aspired to do the same. When she was 15, she moved back to London with aspirations to become a singer. Lipa lived with a friend and studied at Parliament Hill School during the week and returned to study at the Sylvia Young Theater school on the weekends.
