Dua Lipa's just dropped the remix of Levitating, featuring Madonna and Missy Elliott, and it's got us missing the dance floor.
Produced by The Blessed Madonna, it's the first taste of Club Future Nostalgia: The Remix Album, a remix album based on the original record, released earlier this year. If this remix is anything to go buy, Dua fans are in for some huge treats, and surprises.
The Blessed Madonna has transformed the track by speeding it up, and turned it into a track that rivals any banger you've heard this year. Madonna and Missy both bring their best, and it's an adrenaline-inducing rush. If you're not dancing in your living room to this track, you're doing it wrong.
Dua says of the upcoming album, "The last few months have been surreal. I’ve watched you all dance in your homes and on your Zoom parties to Future Nostalgia like you were in the club with me. It brought so much joy to my days spent at home, even though I would’ve much rather been playing these songs live for you all on the road. During this time, I decided to take the party up a notch with the incomparable The Blessed Madonna, who secretly helped me to craft the mixtape that would become ‘Club Future Nostalgia’. We invited some friends and legends to join in on the fun with us. Absolute queens Missy Elliott and Madonna joined me for an epic remix of Levitating, and my dream girl Gwen Stefani and the supreme Mark Ronson teamed up to take Physical to the next level. And the party doesn’t stop there - there are so many more surprises to come!”
Speaking about her involvement on the track, The Blessed Madonna says, "It is no overstatement to say that reimagining Dua’s amazing record, Levitating with Madonna and Missy Elliott was my dream come true. That’s a phrase that is overused, but in this case it is absolutely literal."

There's much more goodness to come, with a new version of Physical featuring Mark Ronson and Gwen Stefani on the way. Dua has been hustling in 2020.
When Dua hasn't been busy working on Club Future Nostalgia, she's been busy showing off her other talents. She recently hosted Jimmy Kimmel, and spoke to some older members of the public who had no idea who she was - with hilarious outcomes.
Check out the track below. It's the first taste of Club Future Nostalgia, and we can't wait to see what's next. Club Future Nostalgia: The Remix Album comes out on August 21st, and you can be sure we're counting down the days.
