British pop export Dua Lipa is a triple threat. Her first few singles released at the tail end of 2015—"Be The One" and "Last Dance"—demonstrated a keen ear for writing catchy, genre-blending pop songs, with accompanying music videos that revealed the 20 year-old to be as gorgeous as she is musically sound. Of course, the true measure of an artist in 2016 isn't the ability to look pretty and sound good on screen—any girl with good genes and a talented producer can do that—but rather it's their capability of backing it up on stage, and putting their money where their mouth is. When Lipa arrived in New York City last week to play her first set of shows here, she did exactly that, demonstrating to an intimate audience at the McKittrick hotel that she has the lungs to match her lyrical abilities, and looks. The following morning, just hours before walking into her V Magazine shoot, the star on the rise released her new single and music video, "Hotter Than Hell," which may be her biggest hit yet.
