Single Release: Silk City – Electricity (feat. Dua Lipa)
Dua Lipa, Diplo and Mark Ronson have unveiled their new single Electricity. The accompanying video for the song sees Dua light up the dancefloor at a party, eventually joined by her Silk City collaborators, aka Mark Ronson and Diplo.
The clip is set during the August 2003 New York City Blackout, and Dua is seen hosting a dance party in her loft that is apparently so hot that it generates its own electricity. Diplo and Ronson are seen looking up at her loft during cutaways.
“Electricity” is a soulful, piano-laced cut inspired by classic Chicago house and features Lipa’s gospel-like vocals.
The house-flavoured track was a collaboration between the three and songwriters Diana Gordon and Romy Madley-Croft of The xx, the latter of whose writing style is evident in the song’s melody. It’s a powerhouse combination all around: Gordon worked on Beyonce’s “Lemonade,” the prolific DJ/producer Diplo is renowned for his work with everyone from Major Lazer and M.I.A. to Skrillex and Justin Bieber (and has a forthcoming album on Columbia with L.S.D., his group with Sia and Labrinth), while Ronson has produced hits for Amy Winehouse and Lady Gaga as well as his solo smash with Bruno Mars, “Uptown Funk.”
