Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Olivia Rodrigo Make 2021 ‘TIME100 Next’ List

Dua Lipa is on the cover of the TIME100 Next issue.


Kylie Minouge wrote in her tribute, “Just under four years ago, she released the first of her two albums. Today, she is dancing hand in hand with the zeitgeist, having carved with laser-like precision her place in the cultural landscape.”

She continued, “I entered Dua’s orbit last November when I appeared as a guest on her Studio 2054 streamed concert. The production was spectacular and inclusive, somehow both future and retro, with her instantly recognizable voice stamped all over clever songwriting. While I know what it’s like to be in the eye of the storm, on this occasion, I was able to see the wider view from the periphery. Her famous work ethic radiated throughout the production.”

Doja Cat, Chloe x Halle and Olivia Rodrigo also made Time’s list.

Gwen Stefani wrote Olivia Rodrigo’s profile saying, “For anyone going through their first heartbreak, Olivia Rodrigo’s voice is a light in the dark, a promise that your pain can someday become a deep source of power.”
