Our queen has returned with the stellar Future Nostalgia, which means, among many things, that Dua Lipa‘s net worth is about to skyrocket. The British pop star’s second studio album was released on March 27 and was immediately met with glowing reviews—with many claiming it to be 2020’s best pop album.
That universal acclaim won’t go without a hefty boost to Dua’s bank account. Now, the Kosovo-born star is bound to put much of that income back into her songwriting, as well as towards her charitable efforts around the world.
Dedicated fans know that Dua is especially passionate about the social welfare of her parents’ home country of Kosovo and neighboring Albania. In 2016, she and her father set up a foundation (the Sunny Hill Foundation) serving the Albanian community. She has even gone on to produce her own SunnyHill Festival, hosted in Pristina, Kosovo, to raise more money for the foundation (Miley Cyrus performed there in 2019.)
