Dua Lipa delights again in her new music video for the latest single "IDGAF," a stomping breakup track off of her self-titled debut album released last June. The moody song tells the story of the pop star shrugging off a sniveling ex-boyfriend, but the visuals are decidedly more nuanced—it's Dua Lipa pitted against Dua Lipa. Her internal battle to move on from a toxic ex is dramatized in an interpretive dance battle against a weaker alter-ego. But instead of one side winning over the other, both versions of herself come out on top and tell a clear tale of self-love and empowerment.

Lipa took to Twitter this morning to talk about the new project, calling it "the toughest and most challenging video to shoot" because of the taxing 22-hour shoot schedule, but that made the final product "the most rewarding." The pop princess also thanked director Henry Scholfield and credited Scholfield and the Mosaert team of Paul Van Haver and Luc Junior Tam with the artistic direction. Watch the clip below.
