Dua Lipa and Elton John teamed up for a song тιтled, Cold Heart. And recently, during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Dua Lipa has revealed that Elton John called when she was hanging out at the pool to ask her to collaborate on a song. The 26-year-old singer, who wore a black halter dress with black knee-high boots, revealed she was ‘in my Bikni and cowboy hat’ when she answered the phone and it was Elton with his husband David Furnish.
Dua said she immediately wanted to say yes to them but they instead listened first to the song Cold Heart before she committed. Dua said after she realized the song had elements from Rocket Man that she felt like she manifested the collaboration. “Rocket Man is my driving song” she said. “It’s my shower song. It’s my song that I sing along to myself.” “Elton, I’m available too. I also know the lyrics to Rocket Man,” Stephen quipped.
Stephen then asked her what it was like to have her explosive success with her album Future Nostalgia during the pandemic and not being able to go out and engage with her fans. Dua stated, “I worked on this album for so long,’ she said. ‘I was very pᴀssionate about it. I was very proud of it as well. It was a body of work where I finally felt like I’d found my confidence and who I was really as an artist and a songwriter.”
The singer went on saying that when everything shut down that she didn’t want to believe it and thought with so much uncertainty that maybe now it was the time to release the album.” Dua said she has this philosophy that up until the music is released that it belongs to her and once it is out that it no longer does. She said she felt it was the perfect time to release it in the hopes that the songs find homes with other people.
