"Dua Lipa, I'm tryna do more with her than do a feature (do it)," Jack Harlow rapped on his track entitled - you guessed it - Dua Lipa, from his second album, released earlier this year, Come Home The Kids Miss You. 

In May, Harlow Facetimed the Don't Start Now singer to ask for her approval to name a song after her. Following the song, Page Six reports that Jack Harlow and Dua Lipa are now dating. After the two met in person at the Variety Hitmakers lunch in Los Angeles last month, sources tell Page Six that they've been in "constant communication" ever since.

The sources also claim that Harlow "was very interested in her, and was going to strongly pursue [the romance]." Apparently, Harlow flew to New York to see Lipa after her Z100 Jingle Ball last week. Sources saw the duo eat lunch together after arriving separately the next day. 

Dua Lipa recently denied that she would have any involvement in performing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar after speculation spread online. 

In an Instagram story, she wrote, "There is currently a lot of speculation that I will be performing at the opening ceremony of the world cup in Qatar. I will not be performing, and nor have I ever been involved in any negotiations to perform. I will be cheering England on from afar. 

She also said, "I look forward to visiting Qatar when it has fulfilled all the human rights pledges it made when it won the right to host the World Cup."

Lipa isn't the first to hold Qatar accountable for human rights abuses, including the death of migrant workers in building soccer stadiums, the lack of women's rights and the country's views on homosexuality, which is illegal in Qatar. World Cup organisers have received plenty of criticism for holding the 2022 event in the country.

Dua Lipa's recent Australian tour was in celebration of the UK artist's acclaimed second album, Future Nostalgia, which was released in 2020.

"I am beyond excited to be bringing my world tour to Australia, it's been way too long, but I promise, we are going to have one heck of a party," Lipa said when the shows were announced last year. 

Future Nostalgia certainly saw Dua Lipa pick up fans around the globe, including here in Australia, where the album came in at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart

Jack Harlow made his Splendour In The Grass festival debut this year. "From Route 66 about his early life in Kentucky to Side Piece, an insight into his relationships, Harlow proved himself a natural storyteller through his songs," we wrote about his set. 

Continuing, The Music found, "Of course, his breakout hit First Class was an undisputed set highlight, and the crowd was all too happy to back him up on the instantly recognisable chorus line lifted from Fergie’s Glamorous. While fancy lighting, graphics and smoke machines did a lot of heavy lifting for the set, Harlow’s natural confidence was a strong asset, and he never missed an opportunity to interact with the crowd."
