AUGUST 17th 2020
Dua Lipa earlier this year, released easily one of the most highly acclaimed and long-awaited studio albums of the year with, ‘Future Nostalgia’. The album included monster records such as, ‘Physical’, ‘Don’t Start Now’ and of course, ‘Levitating’.
Featuring After setting Twitter alight last month with the announcement of the legendary ‘Levitating’ remix, it was on Friday we finally got to experience it in all its glory. Remixed by The Blessed Madonna, the pop-disco track took a dark turn with a more bass heavy pulsing instrumental accompanied by synths, vocoder recorded vocals and a faster BPM than the original. Featuring the legendary Madonna and Missy Elliot, the pair bring a new life to the already glorious record, transforming it into a dark club anthem, reminding us all how desperately we wish we could be together.

"I decided to take the party up a notch with the incomparable The Blessed Madonna, who secretly helped me to craft the mixtape that would become Club Future Nostalgia and the absolute queens Missy Elliott and Madonna joined me for an epic remix of 'Levitating,'" Lipa said of the song in a statement.
A music video was released the following day, which Madonna was unfortunately absent from. However, Dua rocked her new hot pink hair and danced around a bedroom, featuring various clips of herself and her boyfriend, Anwar Hadid. Missy Elliot also made a cameo, looking better than ever, as she caressed the track with her iconic verse.
Of course, this is only the beginning of a very exciting month in ‘Dua-verse’, as The Blessed Madonna calls it, as a new Mixtape entitled ‘Club Future Nostalgia’ will be released at the end of the month featuring remixes of all the iconic track with features from other legendary names including Gwen Stefani and Mark Ronson.
