Kosovo’s Dua Lipa Wins a Grammy for the Best Pop Vocal Album

Kosovo Albanian and London-born pop singer Dua Lipa won a Grammy Award for the Best Pop Vocal Album with her “Future Nostalgia”.

At Sunday’s 63rd Grammy Awards, Lipa was nominated for six awards, including Record of the Year (“Don’t Start Now”), Song of the Year (“Don’t Start Now”) and Album of the Year (“Future Nostalgia”).

She also performed alongside other 2021 Grammy performers including Taylor Swift, Roddy Rich, Harry Styles, Bad Bunny, Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, BTS, Billie Eilish.

“One thing that I have come to realize is how much happiness is so important. I felt really jaded at the end of my last album where I felt like I only had to make sad music to feel like it mattered. I’m just so grateful and so honored because happiness is something we all deserve and something we need in our lives,” Lipa said after receiving the award.

This is the third Grammy Lipa has won.

Dua Lipa was born in London, England to Kosovo Albanian parents. The family moved back in Kosovo in 2008. At the age of 16, Dua Lipa moved back to London, and has since gone on to be one of the most famous pop singers in the world.

She is not the only worldwide famous singer of Kosovo origin. Rita Ora is another pop star from the same city, Kosovo’s capital Prishtina who was raised in the UK.
