Dua Lipa's 'Love Again' clown cover reminds fans of Katy Perry's 'Smile'
With only two full-length albums and a bunch of other hit singles to her credit, Dua Lipa is already among the top global icons today, and therefore, when she announces a new project, it is bound to break the Internet. Taking it to her official Twitter and Instagram accounts, the Grammy award-winning crooner announced that she will be dropping the visuals of the eighth single, ‘Love Again’, from her 2020 hit album ‘Future Nostalgia.’
However, what made the fans go crazy on the Internet was not the announcement of ‘Love Again’ but the cover of the music video. The 25-year-old pop singer shared a close-up picture of hers where she is decked up as a clown with her eyes barely visible as she dons a round black hat. Speaking of new music, singer Pink had recently dropped her second Live album called ‘All I Know So Far’. On the other hand, The Weeknd has already teased a new album while fans also eagerly wait for hip-hop icon Kendrick Lamar to release a new project.

Dua Lipa’s ‘Love Again’
While sharing the music video cover of ‘Love Again’ with her 67 million followers on Instagram, she simply captioned the post as, “LOVE AGAIN MV THIS FRIDAY”. Therefore, it means the music video will be up for viewing on June 4. Fans can easily stream the same on her official YouTube Channel. The song is part of the official tracklist of ‘Future Nostalgia’ released via Warner Records. Here's a glimpse at lyrics of ‘Love Again’: “I never thought that I would find a way out, I never thought I'd hear my heart beat so loud/ I can't believe there's something left in my chest anymore/ But goddamn, you got me in love again/ I used to think that I was made out of stone/ I used to spend so many nights on my own, I never knew I had it in me to dance anymore/ But goddamn, you got me in love again.”
The eighth song from the album samples the trumpet motif from the 1997 UK number one song, ‘Your Woman’ by White Town. The track gives a hint of female empowerment and sexuality. The album also included other hit singles like ‘Levitating’, ‘Don’t Start Now’ and ‘Hallucinate’.
‘She’s trying to do what Katy did with ‘Teenage Dream’
As soon as Dua Lipa announced the visuals for ‘Love Again’, her fan army erupted with joy on Twitter as many spoke about her getting decked up as a clown on the cover. One fan said, “YES LOVE AGAIN DESERVED IT but tf is that clown cover.” "Welcome to the clowns club @katyperry we wanna a remix," said a user. Another stated, “I love how Dua Lipa has a clown face going on with Love Again. That’s sure as hell how I feel about love.” One user added, “Theory; dua lipa is a clown cos the person made her “love again”
The next one tweeted, “I adore Love Again and I never thought we would get a 7TH SINGLE (I mean who is doing it like Dua Lipa?!???) but the way Cool could have been the song of the summer.” Meanwhile, another chimed in and said, “@DUALIPA well, clowning is something that you should’ve put @katyperry on it. And btw, love again.” One curious fan asked, “I love Dua, but what is the reason for the cowboy/clown cover art?”. "Dua lipa with the clown face is queen but you flopped Katy Perry's Smile YOU ARE FALSE," tweeted a user in Spanish while another claimed, “She’s trying to do what Katy did with teenage dream.”
