The 'Hotter Than Hell' singer dropped a cheeky new photo on her Instagram on February 1 for which she captioned "Levitating is TOP 5 in the US 🌕✨ new music coming soooooooooooon <3."

Watch this space for more details on the release.
Dua confirmed her new music will be a deluxe version of 'Future Nostalgia' when she shared an allusive caption for a follow-up teaser. The photo for the teaser features the singer in a cosmic setting again and sitting on the same moon but with a dreamy facial expression this time. Lipa hinted, "hold tight ~ moonlight ~ 🌙" in the caption which is an indirect reference to the lyrics "I got you, moonlight" from the 'Future Nostalgia' hit 'Levitating'. Taking into account the similar photos in both posts and the announcement of new music, this highly suggests additional tracks for the album - as a deluxe. Dua also confirmed this on January 18 via Instagram when she said, "B-sides are on the way...." adding a moon emoji.
Additionally, the deluxe version is rumored to be titled 'Moonlight Edition'. Eagle-eyed fans have pulled together several hints and clues as well and the deluxe will allegedly include an additional six/seven tracks. With its original 13 tracks, the additional songs could include her collabs 'Prisoner', 'UN DIA' and the 'Levitating' remix, which have all been released. Fans are speculating the four brand-new songs are going to be 'That Kind of Woman', 'If It Ain't Me', 'We're Good' and 'Not My Problem'.
'That Kind of Woman' was leaked in August and is said to have been intended to appear on 'Future Nostalgia'. The unreleased 'If It Ain't Me' will feature Normani, according to fan sites. While there is little info on 'We're Good', the song has already appeared on several lyrics websites. And finally, 'Not My Problem' is a 2018 outtake from her sophomore LP and is rumored to be a side-B, as well as a collaboration with JID.
