Dua Lipa made her Ellen debut Tuesday (Feb. 13), dancing across the stage for a performance of of her breakout hit “New Rules” from her debut self-titled album, which dropped this summer.
Lipa came to the show clad with a girl squad adorned in silky pink sleepwear, similar to the stylings of the widely popular music video that came out in July (which is quickly approaching 1 billion YouTube views, sitting at 997.4 million on the day of her Ellen appearance). And while the singer swore in a Billboard Argentina interview that she, “can’t dance” — saying when she tries she “(trips) onstage” — her moves seemed more than fine.
The song has had widespread crossover success, topping the UK Billboard Hot 100 Chart in September, and eventually breaking into the top ten of the (U.S.) Billboard Hot 100 reaching No. 6 this week (chart dated Feb. 17), its peak on the chart so far. Check out the full performance below, including Ellen getting in on the girl squad action in the final moments.1 of 1
