From the moment we heard murmurs that Silk City, the new brainchild of Diplo and Mark Ronson, would be teaming up with Dua Lipa, breakout pop girl of the moment, we knew that the results would be electric, or rather, “Electricity”. After weeks of build-up, their collaboration is finally here.

Co-written by Diana Gordon and Romy Madley Croft of The xx, “Electricity” is a huge ‘90s house throwback with soulful piano stabs, those lush deep hooks, and Lipa’s massive vocals bringing it all to life. The video, directed by Bradley and Pablo, shows Lipa's star power at its brightest as she kicks off a sweaty warehouse party with nothing but magnetic choreography and a platinum blonde bob. Amusingly, Diplo and Ronson can’t get in.

Ever since their debut in May, Silk City has been delivering solid dance bangers on a consistent basis, including irresistible Electric Circus flashbacks like “Only Can Get Better”. “Electricity” is only the latest in a recent string of collaborations for Lipa, which includes the smash hit “One Kiss” with Calvin Harris and an upcoming track with K-pop group BLACKPINK, “Kiss and Make Up”. All three tracks will be released as part of a deluxe re-package of her self-titled debut album on October 19.
