Following the phenomenal success of ‘Future Nostalgia’, Dua Lipa was the big winner at The Global Awards 2021. The star was named Best Female, Best British Artist and her huge hit ‘Don’t Start Now’ was the Most Played Song across Global’s radio stations in 2020.

Little Mix were honoured with the Best Group prize - an accolade they won at the inaugural Global Awards in 2018 and again in 2019. Their win sees them join Dua Lipa as the most celebrated artists in Global Awards history, with both acts receiving six trophies over four years.

Upon learning of her triple Global Award win, Dua Lipa said: “I want to say thank you so much to my fans, I want to say thank you to my team, I want to say thank you to Ashley and everyone at Global. This is so exciting. Obviously I would have loved to have come and party with you guys, but we’ll have to do that again next year. Thank you, thank you so much! Now to jazz up my living room with these!”
