Watch Dua Lipa Cover Arlo Parks’s “Eugene” on Radio 1
The latest Dua Lipa Live Lounge cover makes us patiently wait for a collaboration between Lipa and Arlo Parks for good reason. The British-Kosovar singer went to the BBC Radio 1 studio on April 19th to play a stunning cover of Park’s popular track “Eugene”. On the cover, Lipa showed her soulful side with a reduced reproduction of the track with two background singers. Along with “Eugene”, Lipa also played a moody version of “Hallucinate” and a stripped-down version of their latest single, “We Are Good”.
Following the performance, the singer shared a sweet thank you message on Twitter that read: “Thank you @ BBCR1 and @claraamfo for having us !!! You can now see all of these in full on Youtube !!!! Thanks to my band – and background singers who really did the magical // musical direction of @williambowerman. “
When Lipa shared her park cover on Twitter, she admitted she was “such a fan of this young lady and her magical voice,” and we have to agree. Both versions of the song are really magical, but we have to admit that we loved seeing that softer side of Lipa and hearing a different musical arrangement.
