Dua Lipa won’t just star as a mermaid Barbie alongside Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling‘s Barbie and Ken in the upcoming «Barbie» movie hitting theaters on July 21. The «Levitating» singer also recorded a new song for the film’s soundtrack!
On May 22, Lipa announced on Instagram that her new single for the movie’s soundtrack is called «Dance the Night,» captioning a video post, in part, «This Barbie has a song coming . . .»
The new track will be released alongside a music video, which Lipa teased in her Instagram post. Ahead, find out everything there is to know about Lipa’s new song, from the music video to the release date.
«Dance the Night» Music Video Teaser
In the music video teaser, someone steps out of a pair of pink, fluffy Barbie-esque high-heel slides and literally levitates on her tip-toes (because she’s a Barbie whose ankles can’t bend — get it?). A retro, disco tune reminiscent of Lipa’s 2020 album, «Future Nostalgia,» plays as Lipa appears on the screen and blows a kiss to the camera before she sings, «Just come along for the ride.»
«Dance the Night» Release Date
«Dance the Night» and its music video releases on May 26 at midnight BST (May 25 at 7 p.m. EST). The whole «Barbie» soundtrack will drop alongside the movie about two months later, on July 21.
