In 2018, Lipa was the most streamed female artist in the U.K. and second-most streamed female artist in the U.S., largely credited to the success of her album and collaborations with producers Calvin Harris, Diplo and Mark Ronson.

In April 2018, Calvin Harris released “One Kiss” featuring Lipa; the upbeat single soared to No. 1 on multiple Billboard Dance/Electronic charts. In September, Silk City — the duo composed of music producers of Diplo and Mark Ronson — dropped another Lipa-featured track: the now, Grammy-winning record “Electricity.”

Lipa was nominated for two Grammy awards: Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording for the song “Electricity,” with Silk City (Diplo and Mark Ronson). Lipa and Silk City grabbed the Grammy for “Electricity” earlier in the evening.
