Dua Lipa’s Coronavirus ‘Rules’ Take Note From ‘Don’t Start Now’

Self-quarantine amid the coronavirus spread means no social contact. Dua Lipa knows that, and is borrowing lessons from “Don’t Start Now” to implore her fans to stay home. The songstress took to social media on Wednesday (March 18) to share a meme that gives a bullet point list on “how to avoid coronavirus.”


Dua Lipa wrote “Don’t Start Now” with Caroline Ailin, Emily Warren, and Ian Kirkpatrick.
“Don’t Start Now” is a nu-disco song with various 1980s elements and disco.
Dua Lipa says the lyrics have an empowerment theme and are about “moving forward” from a past relationship and “not letting anyone get in the way.” In his review for Stereogum, Peter Helman wrote that while “New Rules” dealt with the “immediate consequences” of a breakup, “Don’t Start Now” is “a kind of sequence, proof of those really smart new rules.”

Don’t Start Now – Dua Lipa

If you don’t wanna see me

Did a full one eighty
Crazy, thinking ’bout the way I was
Did the heartbreak change me?
Maybe, but look at where I ended up

I’m all good already
So moved on it’s scary
I’m not where you left me at all
So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up
Don’t come out
Don’t start caring about me now
Walk away
You know how
Don’t start caring about me now

Aren’t you the guy who tried to
Hurt me with the word goodbye
Though it took some time to, survive you
I’m better on the other side

I’m all good already
So moved on it’s scary
I’m not where you left me at all
So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up
Don’t come out
Don’t start caring about me now
Walk away
You know how
Don’t start caring about me now

Don’t come out
Don’t show now
Don’t start now
Don’t come out
I’m not where you left me at all

So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up (Don’t show up)
Don’t come out (Don’t come out)
Don’t start caring about me now (’bout me now)
Walk away (Walk away)
You know how (You know how)
Don’t start caring about me now

So (Don’t come out, out, out)
(Don’t show now, walk away, walk away)
So (Don’t come out, out, out)
(Don’t start now, walk away, walk away)

It may be a contentious, potentially credibility-decimating take, but I’d contend that UK pop music is in pretty rude health right about now: aside from the aberration that was the Normani collaboration Checklist, Calvin Harris has ticked all sorts of boxes since the start of last year; meanwhile, whether producing an exemplary set of so-called ‘sad bangers’ or bashing out the sizzling Electricity, alongside Diplo, Mark Ronson has also found a new vein of pulsating intrigue.
