Dua Lipa has teamed up with Bond NYC to release a charity t-shirt in aid of the victims of the Albania earthquake.
The ‘New Rules’ songstress, whose parents are Kosovo Albanian, shared the t-shirt design on her social media. She confirmed that 100% of the proceeds will go to the victims and families of those affected, helping to rebuild homes and the community.
The 6.4 magnitude earthquake occurred in Albania during the early hours of the morning on November 26, whilst most people were still asleep. It was the strongest tremor to hit the country in decades, killing 51 people and injuring hundreds more. It also left more than 14,000 people homeless due to the extent of damages to buildings in the community.

At just 21 years old, Dua Lipa is in the middle of headlining her first North American tour, and just several months away (June 2 to be exact) from releasing her debut album. “It’s surreal,” the Londoner says as we sit backstage ahead of her sold-out New York City show at Irving Plaza.
Onstage, Dua has a larger-than-life personality, dancing around in sky-high platforms with a raspy voice that commands attention. But when we meet, she instantly puts us at ease with a huge smile, chatting away about her excitement for being back in New York. “I love it here,” she says. “It’s a bit more hectic than London, but I love that so much and it’s always fun coming back.”

Absolute powerhouse Dua Lipa has received the first-ever key to the city of Prishtina, Kosova – the artist’s hometown where she spent a good chunk of her life after the family moved there from London in 2008.

The 22-year-old is currently in the city for the Sunny Hill Festival, fronted by Lipa and organised by her father Dukagjin Lipa.
