Album Review: "Radical Optimism" by Dua Lipa (7/10)

Warner Records

Producers: Kevin Parker, Danny L Harle

So long disco electro-pop, hello breezy dance anthems. Not to be pigeonholed to one kind of sound, Dua Lipa’s third album Radical Optimism is a striking follow-up to her critically acclaimed sophomore album Future Nostalgia. Radical Optimism highlights Lipa’s sonic maturity and confidence.

Lipa’s vocals are the strongest they’ve ever been. This is especially apparent in the irresistible “How looooong” high note in “Falling Forever” and the heart wrenching yet hopeful ballad “Happy For You.”
