Future Nostalgia also includes the number one global hit single "Don't Start Now", and her current United Kingdom smash single "Physical".

She shares the latest single from the album ahead of its release, the ultra-catchy "Break My Heart", along with a stylish music video. In the video, Dua takes viewers on a roller coaster of emotions as she travels through the ups and downs of a tumultuous relationship.

"Break My Heart" might sound familiar to some, as it interpolates INXS' song "Need You Tonight". It's always risky to tinker with the classics, but this works perfectly with the hitmaker's retro-futuristic sound. Dua Lipa is especially eager for fans to hear Levitating, Hallucinate, and Love Again among the remaining songs. "You know you can get whatever you want from me / Whenever you want it, baby / It's you in my reflection / I'm afraid of all the things you can do to me / If I would've known it, baby". The "New Rules" queen then wonders if she's in too deep on the chorus.

The two people affected in Belmont County are contacts of a county couple who tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the month. "It is extremely important that everyone stay home and avoid contact with others", reads a statement from Franklin County.

"I would have stayed at home/ "cause I was doing better alone/ but when you said 'hello"/ I knew that was the end of it all", she sings. Less liberating than Don't Start Now, Break My Heart deals in forbidden love and takes on the subject with all the drama and allure that's required.

With sweeping strings, groovy bass and emotive keys, Break My Heart feels like the disco backbone of Future Nostalgia and it stands on its own gloriously.
