“Dua Lipa” by Jack Harlow
Certain parts of Jack Harlow’s “Dua Lipa” song, such as the chorus and first verse, aren’t necessarily that easy to understand in their entirety. But the thesis sentiment of the track is pretty clear, that being Harlow’s infatuation, if you will, with Dua Lipa.
Lipa is a fellow musician he crossed paths with at the 2022 Grammy Awards and was apparently smitten by in the process. Since Lipa actually traces her parentage to Southeastern Europe, Jack also uses the opportunity to express an interest in “European” girls in general, as well as a type of experience Lipa is said to fancy called “Russian twists”.
But lyrically, the vocalist doesn’t really go out of his way to harp on such a motif. Indeed in the second verse, the song kinda transforms, with Harlow going about presenting himself as somewhat of a playa – someone whose “European” girlfriend is cool with ‘being an extra’. That kinda lingo and lack of focus may be why, when he actually played this track for Lipa, by the looks of things she wasn’t overly impressed.
But obviously, even if some analysts have interpreted this piece as Harlow shooting his shot, he isn’t overly serious in doing so. Or let’s say that at the end of the day, this being a rap song and all, it is more imperative to the vocalist that he presents himself as a chillin’ alpha male – likely being a reflection of his true celebrity life – than it is for him to try to impress a particular lady.
