Dua Lipa already remixed her Future Nostalgia hits for a Club Future Nostalgia compilation with The Blessed Madonna, which debuted at No. 28 on the Billboard 200 this week (dated Sept. 12). But Ingrid Andress and Declan McKenna arrived fashionably late with their own covers.
Andress recorded a couplet of Spotify Singles, which she released Wednesday (Sept. 9). In addition to a reimagined version of “Lady Like,” the titular track of her debut album this year, the 28-year-old country singer-songwriter showcased her cover of Lipa’s No. 2 Hot 100 hit “Don’t Start Now.”
She transposed the upbeat disco-inspired breakup anthem into a down-tempo piano ballad that’ll have listeners in their feels rather than forgetting them on the dance floor. “Y’all ready KNOW i had to make a moody girl version of queen @dualipa song ‘Don’t Start Now.’ just had to happen,” Andress wrote on Instagram today in promotion of her latest singles.
On Tuesday (Sept. 8), McKenna stripped-down Lipa’s ethereal ’90s jam “Hallucinate” for an acoustic performance on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. The 21-year-old pop singer-songwriter traded in her mellifluous “mi-mi-mi-mind” hook for his powerful bursts in the chorus.
Even though he told Billboard last week in a 20-question interview that he missed “the energy of it all” when performing in front of a live audience, he still brought it to his intimate BBC Radio 1 set.
