In a surprising move, pop sensation Dua Lipa has decided to pull the plug on a highly anticipated big-budget music video amid escalating tensions between Israel and Hamas. The decision, made after emergency meetings, has left fans curious about the reasons behind this sudden change of plans. Titled DL3, the 28-year-old British superstar secretly filmed the video, incorporating scenes of explosions, crowd confrontations, and overall chaos. The intention was to synchronize the song’s release with the buildup to the launch of her third studio album next year. Nevertheless, the plan was abandoned.

Dua Lipa halts music video release

Dua Lipa’s influence extends far beyond music. She’s a vocal advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and feminism, using her platform to speak out against injustice. According to The Sun, Dua Lipa’s song was filmed way before the conflict between Israel and Hamas began on October 7 this year. “The high-budget music video, which involved hundreds of extras, was conceptualized and shot before the outbreak of the war in Gaza.” Despite this, the New Rules singer decided to cancel the planned release.

According to a person close to the singer, the song was shelved following several urgent meetings where it was decided not to release it due to the sensitive circumstances at hand. The insider in a conversation with The Sun said, “Dua and her team decided that it would be insensitive for the video to come out given what has happened on and since October 7.”
