Dua Lipa appeared with Calvin Harris on Graham Norton last night.

Shes taken the world by storm with her New Rules and IDGAF attitude, and her most recent collaboration with the Scottish DJ – titled One Kiss – will likely be the song of the summer.

Where is the songstress from though, and how did she break into the music scene?

The singer-songwriter, 22, had a wonderful 2017 in the music charts after only releasing her first album last June.

The London native was born to Albanian parents from Kosovo who immigrated in the 1990s, and in 2008 her family returned to Kosovo.

Dua Lipa is actually her real name – her fathers name is Dukagjin Lipa.

When she was 15, she returned to the UK in the hope of becoming a singer.
