Dua Lipa's Net Worth In 2024 Is So High, It May as Well Be Levitating

Dua Lipa's net worth in 2024 comes from hard work, even when she could coast her current success: She's a pop star, a movie star, a model and an icon.

Lipa told The New York Times that her parents' struggles as immigrants to the U.K. from Kosovo influence her work ethic. "What's maybe the immigrant mentality … this thing I have in my head where I know that, if I don't work hard enough, the rug could just be pulled from under my feet," she said.

Part of that work ethic is keeping immaculate records and schedules to maintain her sanity.

"I don't even want to show you my phone [calendar], because I'm embarrassed about it, but it's really down to the minute: where I'm going, what I'm doing: 'Wake up, glam, prep for podcast,'" Lipa said. "I have to watch Succession, so I’ve got to schedule that."

She added that she even schedules her showers, and on the rare occasion that she's behind schedule, she is apologetic.

"If she's two minutes late—literally, if it's 12:02—there's a text: 'Sorry, running five minutes late,'" Mark Ronson, who worked with Lipa on "Dance the Night" from Barbie, told The New York Times. "That's not superstar behavior, you know? She still works with the mindset that she hasn't [made it] yet."

We love a Type A, humble queen. Find out Dua Lipa's net worth and how she made it.

How did Dua Lipa become famous?

Dua Lipa was born in London on Aug. 22, 1995, to Anisa and Dukagjin Lipa. She had music in her blood: Father Dukagjin is the former singer of the Kosovan rock band Oda, and she credits him for helping her pursue her music career from a young age.

"My father was a musician, so I've always been really inspired by him and living in a really musical household," she told Glamour U.K. "Those are the things that really inspired me and I feel like it was inevitable to fall into this as a career. My parents listened to a lot of Bowie, Bob Dylan, The Stereophonics and StingThe Police, Radiohead."

Her family moved to Kosovo when she was 11, and four years later, she moved back to London solo. She began performing covers on YouTube when she was 15 years old to use "as a portfolio," she explained, rather than hoping to go viral. She attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School, a prestigious performing arts academy that counts Nicholas Hoult, Emma "Baby Spice" BuntonRita Ora, Leona Lewis and the late Amy Winehouse among its alumni.

When Lipa turned 18, she signed a record deal with Warner Music. She became a star in Europe, Australia and New Zealand with her second single, "Be the One," in 2015, but it would be two years before she charted stateside with "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)," which peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard Top 40. Her debut album, Dua Lipa, dropped in June 2017, and her hit "New Rules" propelled her to full-on pop stardom, and her 2020 follow-up, Future Nostalgia, sent her star soaring into the stratosphere.

What also helps Lipa remain successful is that she has a sense of humor about herself. After her dancing became a meme, she got to work on her moves, but still paid homage to said meme in her live shows:

Truly? We can't help but stan.

Is Dua Lipa very popular?

She absolutely is. She has two platinum albums, 11 platinum singles and one diamond single, and her star shows zero signs of falling any time soon. And Lipa's done it all without selling her personal life to her fans (i.e., with Easter eggs, hidden messages in lyrics and other Taylor Swift methods), which she says is deliberate, though she never mentioned Swift by name.

"I think it’s a marketing tool: How confessional can you be?" Lipa told The New York Times. "I also don't put so much of my life out there for people to dig into the music in this weird, analytical way."
