Here’s what the UK’s loving on YouTube this week.
1. Dua Lipa is officially winning at music life. This week, she secured 'Best British Female' and 'British Breakthrough Artist' at the Brits and joined the 'Billion Views Club' on YouTube with her video 'New Rules'. Dua is currently the youngest female artist with a solo performance in the club and this video marks the 100th video to reach 1B views on YouTube. Woohoo. To celebrate, here she is sashaying and singing her 1 billion hit on The Ellen Show.
2. After holding back the river and taking a look in your eyes, we’re ready for some ‘Wild Love’. Sporting a new haircut and some sweet butterfly friends, James Bay is back people. He says his new song was inspired by Frank Ocean and Prince. Take a listen. Plus if you like Stranger Things, you might spot a familiar face in the video too.
3. Another much welcomed comeback, hey Kylie, hey! If you didn’t manage to get tickets to her 2018 tour – it’s OK, we’ve got you covered, you can make YouTube playlists galore and dance like no one’s watching. Her latest single ‘Dancing’ has given us all the Friyay feeling (and new accessory goals after seeing that guitar).
4. For us, this was definitely one of the highlights from London Fashion Week – seeing two very special and different Queens together – HRH and US Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour. Our favourite parts? Queen Elizabeth II looking so pro on the frow in her regal Angela Kelly duck-egg blue tweed (she rocked it) and she cracked a smile out of (the normally poker-faced) Anna. You can always count on our Liz.
5. We’ve all been there, teaching senior folk how to use tech. It’s a good deed, if a tad ‘character building’ and Jack Whitehall took on the challenge. Ahead of his new YouTube Originals show ‘Training Days’ (watch this space) he shows his dad how to use YouTube and subscribe to his channel. Topped with Jack explaining, ‘I know you like history, but that is bad history, never ever touch that button’. Genius.
One to watch: Teatum Jones
Rising stars, British fashion designers Teatum Jones showcased this beautiful short film at London Fashion Week. The story? They asked 25 women from various backgrounds, across the globe, three questions. In spite of their differences, the women were united by their moments of intense joy, sadness and hope. The designers have become huge advocates of 'human stories' and put them at the heart of everything they do. Watch the film plus the recordingfrom their fashion week show. Warning: You might fall deeply in love with everything in their AW18 collection and want to pre-order everything. Just saying.
