The legendary singer congratulated the ‘New Rules’ hitmaker on Instagram live, where he admired the effort Dua Lipa has put into her LP ‘Future Nostalgia’. Sir Elton John said: “While you are interviewing me … I just want to tell you that you’ve probably made one of the greatest albums of the year, ‘Future Nostalgia’.
“The thing about ‘Future Nostalgia’ was it caught the zeitgeist of what people wanted. They wanted something up, they wanted something fun and every track on the album is fantastic.
“We don’t stop playing it here. My boys love it, David [Furnish, husband] loves it. I just want to congratulate you because you were the first out there.”
The 73-year-old also brought up the names Lady Gaga, Jessie Ware, and Roisin Murphy into his discussion, but he especially highlighted Dua Lipa’s record as the ‘zeitgeist’. Sir Elton John continued: “Gaga came and then there was the Jessie Ware and there was a Roisin Murphy record.
“But you were out there as the zeitgeist. You got the album out first and it’s been a huge album. I think you have had three major hits on it already and ‘Levitating’, which is my favourite.”
