British Singer Griff loves touring with ‘amazing’ Dua Lipa

Griff believes Dua Lipa is clever at keeping herself “quite hidden”.

Griff has heaped praise on 21-year-old singer Dua Lipa having joined Dua on the European leg of her Future Nostalgia tour, and Griff has been amazed by how the chart-topping star deals with the pressures of fame.

English singer and songwriter Griff shared: “She’s pretty good when people do see her, and she’s very graceful. But she also does keep herself quite hidden. She is clever at picking her moments and spots but she still enjoys life, which is really amazing.”

Griff had never even met Dua, 26, before she joined her on tour. But she’s loved every moment with the ‘Levitating’ hitmaker.

She told The Sun newspaper: “We had never met but one day I just heard she wanted me to open the tour. It’s crazy. She actually saved her number in my phone. It just says, ‘Dua Lipa’.

“We’ve been hanging out on tour. She is really great. She knows how to really have her time off and deserves it because the show is so physical and huge. On days off she will message and be like, ‘Let’s just go to my favourite restaurant and drink some wine and just relax’.”

Meanwhile, Jack Harlow recently revealed that he sought Dua’s approval before he named a song after her.

The 24-year-old rap star spoke to the London-born singer before he released his new track, which is named ‘Dua Lipa’.

He said: “I wanted to get her blessing, so I FaceTimed her and played it for her because I didn’t want her to be blindsided by that or feel like creeped out or anything.

“If she had said, ‘Yo, I hate it. I don’t want it to come out,’ it wouldn’t have come out.”

Dua thinks the song is “okay” – but she was also “thrown off” by the conversation.

Jack shared: “She was like, ‘Oh, I mean it’s not my song. I suppose it’s okay.’ She was just kinda thrown off and she just kinda let it go.”
