Dua Lipa is one of the biggest pop stars in the world right now, with her massive hit "New Rules" becoming the new go-to post-breakup anthem. She's also a major BRIT Award winner, and her latest collaboration with Mark Ronson and Diplo, 'Electricity' is sure to be another banger.

Dua started out her career as a model, but she really took off when she began uploading songs to YouTube in 2014. She had such an impact that in 2015 she signed with Warner Music Group and released her first single 'Be the One' the following year.

Since then, she has gone on to release an eponymous debut album, 'Dua Lipa', in 2017. It spawned seven singles including two UK top-10 hits in 'Be the One' and 'Idol'. She has also released two extended plays and a handful of remixes.

It's no wonder that she's such a hot commodity, with her mezzo-soprano vocal range bringing her critical acclaim and media coverage. She has even gained a reputation as a super-singer with her awe-inspiring live shows.

But her success isn't without its challenges. Her not-so-common name is something that's been mispronounced by everyone from Cardi B to Lana Condor (aka Lara Jean from To All The Boys I've Loved Before). Luckily, long-term fans will know that her name is pronounced 'doo-ah leep-ah', but it seems like everyone else is still trying to figure out how to say it. Keep scrolling to see some of the best and worst 'Dua Lipa' pronunciations ever.
