Dua Lipa’s “Training Season” is over

Winner of three Grammys and six Brit Awards, Dua Lipa releases ‘Training Season’, the second single from his upcoming album due out this year. Together with the song, the pop star also created the music video, which tells a lot about the song. Sitting at a table in a bar, with the world spinning and wrapped in chaos, she is under the cannibalistic gaze of a sea of ​​men, who ask her for “a chance”. It is obviously a pop song, but less blinding and pompous than others, more focused on meaning, as the story of the clip also demonstrates.

Talking about the song, Dua says, “I had been on a string of bad dates, and the last one was the straw that broke the camel’s back. The next morning I arrived at the studio and Caroline and Tobias they asked me how it went and I immediately declared: ‘Training season is over’! Like the best gossip the next day with your closest friends, we had a lot of laughs and it all started from there.” And he added: “If on the one hand it’s obviously about that feeling you get when you is tired of telling people… men in particular in this case… how to behave towards you, on the other hand it’s also about the fact that the training season is over and that I’ve grown. I have never felt so confident, clear and strong. And even though the training season never actually ends for any of us, it begins appreciate the beauty of finding a person to experience it with. You stop looking for apprentices and become more interested in having someone to grow together with“.

Directed by Vincent Haycock, the video for “Training Season” opens with Dua’s answering machine flooded with apologies and requests for a second chance. The song was written by Dua Lipa, along with Caroline Ailin, Danny L. Harle, Tobias Jesso Jr. and Kevin Parker of Tame Impala, and was produced by Parker and Harle. In addition to “Training Season”, the new album will include “Houdini,” which has surpassed 300 million streams worldwide and was recently certified Gold in Italy. The single went straight to number one on the Italian Airplay chart for six weeks and became the number one music video in the world on YouTube in the week of its release.
