On the latest episode of her iHeartRadio podcast, Dua Lipa: At Your Service, she engaged in a conversation about her love life with fellow singer Charlie XCX.

"For me, this is the first year I've not been in a relationship for a very long time," she admitted.

She added that the change has been a rather refreshing and welcomed one, maintaining that: "It's been really great to just be alone and only think about myself and kind of be quite selfish."
