“IDGAF” is the seventh single from Lipa’s self-titled debut album. It follows her breakthrough hit, “New Rules,” which has scaled the highest of charts around the globe. While she was warning against getting back with an ex on “Rules,” Dua goes head-to-head with the cheater on “IDGAF,” an expletive-filled acronym. Backed by a guitar and militaristic drumline, Lipa unloads her indifference onto the guy. “Get up off your knees / Boy, I don’t give a f**k,” she sings. “IDGAF” is Lipa’s middle finger moment realized in a combative kiss-off anthem.
In the music video for “IDGAF,” Lipa gathers her girls together once again for a dance battle between two gangs. A blue squad and red squad both led by different versions of Dua get down à la “West Side Story.” As the fighting goes on, the two groups eventually ban together and deliver a swaggering grand finale. Lipa’s internal struggle plays out beautifully with another creative clip under her belt.
“IDGAF” is now available on iTunes and Apple Music alongside the Dua Lipa album. Next month, she will play shows across the U.S. on The Self-Titled Tour.
