Dua Lipa has dropped the much-teased remix of ‘Levitating’ featuring appearances from Missy Elliott and Madonna and remixed by the Blessed Madonna. The new, sped-up version is taken from the upcoming remix LP Club Future Nostalgia, set for release August 21st. Listen to it below.
“Madonna has been an artist that I’ve listened to my whole life,” Lipa said in an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music. “Her career trajectory as well has been something so inspirational and the momentum that she’s kept and the way that she’s grown with her music.”
She also added that Elliott was “inspired” by the song, saying: “I jumped on the phone with her and we had a little talk and she really just does stuff that she really believes in, so that I felt it was such a massive compliment for me, for her to be so inspired by the remix and the track, and to want to be a part of it and be a part of this mixtape.”
Future Nostalgia, which landed on our Best Albums of 2020 (So Far) list, was released back in March. The remix LP is set to feature remixes of every song from the record, including a remix of ‘Physical’ by Mark Ronson featuring Gwen Stefani.
Update: A music video for the remix, directed by Will Hooper, premiered this Morning. Watch it below.
