We rank some of Dua Lipa's best tracks on her Grammy Award-winning album Future Nostalgia

Dua Lipa has come a long way. Not long after winning Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording in the 2019 Grammys and receiving criticism for her previous performances, the singer's most recent album Future Nostalgia won Best Pop Vocal Album at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. It doesn't come as a surprise since Dua's pop album is made up of some of the most catchy and nostalgic tracks as its name would suggest.

1. Physical

"Physical" is obviously infused with 80's party pop sounds that make it undeniably catchy and fun. The old-school and upbeat intro alone rouses almost anyone to their feet. Apparently, Dua is aware of its power to fire up anyone listening to the track and even made a workout video to pair it with.

2. Cool

Dua's third track titled "Cool" is the type of song you play when you're driving down a long stretch of road. The backing vocals add to the song's enthralling sound, reminding you of the feeling of being free and in-love, considering that the track is made to be about 'summer romance' as Dua describes.

3. Don't Start Now

Dua returned with "Don't Start Now" which gave us the first peek of her improved sound. Her vocals paired so well with this track's funky basslines, horns, and electric sounds.

4. Break My Heart

"Break My Heart" is a sad song embedded into a fun beat. This juxtaposition makes Dua's ninth track so notable that it can stand even as a single. The disco-inflected bassline makes this song iconic, but so does the chorus. While the whole song runs at a faster tempo, you get to relish the emotion further at the bridge when the track is slightly stripped and all you hear is Dua vocalizing.

5. Boys Will Be Boys

Goes without saying that Dua's vocals have certainly improved. But so has her lyricism. She had always been downright with her lyrics which can be appreciated on her last track "Boys Will Be Boys" alongside her powerful vocals.

6. Levitating

This is the song that makes you think of romance and a glitter-filled dance floor. It's difficult not to sing along and dance to "Levitating" with its fun and playful chorus. Let's not forget DaBaby's catchy verse featured on the track.

7. Hallucinate

"This is the festival song," Dua says as she describes her seventh track on Future Nostalgia. The song takes you on a "massive, amazing, all-encapsulating trip", and it's quite impossible not to imagine hearing "Hallucinate" at future music festivals.
