Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "I don't wanna live another life, 'cause this one's pretty nice."

Answer: Physical

A powerful, upbeat synth track, "Physical" was the second single to be released from "Future Nostalgia" and continued Lipa's streak of hits into early 2020. Borrowing lyrics from the classic Olivia Newton-John song, "Physical", and nodding to the 1980s influences featured throughout the album, it would become critically acclaimed. "Physical" topped out at number three on the UK Singles Chart and went platinum in nearly a dozen countries after its first year.
2. "I'll breathe you in forever and ever."

Answer: Hallucinate

The fourth single to release from the album, "Hallucinate" hit the airwaves, formally, in June 2020 and continued Lipa's streak of leveraging disco-infused beats. Though it didn't chart as well as her other tracks, the song is notable for its unique music video as it was completely animated and created during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic through remote studios in Europe and North America.

The video features an animated Lipa in a Studio 54-esque club.
3. "And the colour of the sky looking nice-o-nice."

Answer: Cool

Though not taken as a single from the album, "Cool" fills in a gap between "Don't Start Now" and "Physical" on the "Future Nostalgia" tracklist that allows for a bit of a breather. A synth-driven track, "Cool" featured a team of songwriters in its credits including Swedish artist Tove Lo, who would go on to open for Dua during her 2022 Future Nostalgia Tour in support of the album (post COVID-19 restrictions).
4. "Center of attention, you know you can get whatever you want from me."

Answer: Break My Heart

Releasing as a single mere days after the world went into lockdowns for COVID-19, "Break My Heart" was the single that was sent out with the album and it helped propel Dua Lipa into further stardom, cementing her as one of the few pop artists to have a critically-renowned major release during the pandemic.

The song showed on many year-end lists in 2020, appeared on seven U.S. singles charts, and reached number six on the UK Singles Chart. As with a handful of other songs from "Future Nostalgia", it would go multi-platinum internationally.
5. "But whatever, let's get lost on Mars."

Answer: Levitating

The fifth of six singles cut from "Future Nostalgia", "Levitating" is a peppy pop track that comes complete with disco clapping designed to get listeners into the groove. Hitting the airwaves in October 2020, the song went on to be remixed for Lipa's "Club Future Nostalgia" album; she would end up revising the track with vocals from Madonna and Missy Elliott and, subsequently, end up on year-end lists for a handful of major outlets. Lipa would perform this song alongside "Don't Start Now" at the Grammy Awards in 2021.

It hit number two on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number five on the UK Singles Chart.
6. "Somewhere in the middle, I think I lied a little."

Answer: Pretty Please

One of the only songs on the album to lean hard into the down-beat, "Pretty Please" was a more subdued track from "Future Nostalgia" and one of the few not to become an official single. This track uses a bass and drum beat to back Lipa's vocals as she sings about changing up the pace of her relationship. Lipa would perform the song a number of times for online events during the COVID-19 pandemic, often to break up her more upbeat songs as a palate cleanser.
7. "I know you're dying trying to figure me out."

Answer: Future Nostalgia

The first track on the "Future Nostalgia" album, this song features a number of elements that the artist brings to the table for her upbeat sophomore release. Though released as a promotional single in late 2019, it didn't strike the same chord as other early tracks.

Despite this, the song charted in nearly a dozen countries with minimal effort, likely due to its strong throwback stylings and Lipa's confident swagger and lyrics.
8. "If you're offended by this song, you're clearly doing something wrong."

Answer: Boys Will Be Boys

The final track on the original release of "Future Nostalgia" (before considering any Deluxe Editions or "The Moonlight Edition"), "Boys Will Be Boys" features quite different instrumentation from the rest of the album including orchestral strings and a choir. Considered a powerful ballad by many critics, others felt that it didn't maintain the party feel perpetuated by everything to precede it.

It was neither released as a single nor did it chart in most countries.
9. "I know it's really bad, bad, bad, bad, bad."

Answer: Good in Bed

A jazzier track up against the '80s inspired synth stylings of the rest of "Future Nostalgia", "Good in Bed" evokes the influences of fellow UK musician Lily Allen more than anything with its piano backing. One of the few tracks from the album not to see significant radio airplay, its notable for its significant number of credited writers and for being produced by the brains behind Lil Nas X's "Montero (Call Me by Your Name)".
10. "Never have I ever met somebody like you."

Answer: Love Again

The sixth and final single to release from "Future Nostalgia", "Love Again" uses samples from the 1932 song "My Woman" (which was also sampled for White Town's "Your Woman" in 1997) as a recurring riff as Lipa sings about a new, rejuvenating relationship. Released just shy of a year after the world went into widespread COVID-19 lockdowns, it was a moment of reflection for a momentous album.

The track would be explored in great detail, from conception to construction to release, in Netflix's music docu-series "Song Exploder",
11. "Did the heartbreak change me? Maybe."

Answer: Don't Start Now

The top track to release from "Future Nostalgia", "Don't Start Now" was the first single from the disc and the first to hit more than a billion online plays. It ended up on year-end lists in 2019, 2020, and 2021, topping the four charts in the United States (and appearing on eight), hitting number two on the UK Singles Chart, and taking three Grammy nominations.

The song uses an uptempo disco beat as its basis in an approach that can likely be compared to tracks from Daft Punk's "Random Access Memories".
