Dua Lipa has bought the rights to her publishing catalog from TAP Music Publishing, the company announced today. The sale arrives over a year after the singer, who was also previously a part of TAP’s artist management branch, parted ways with the company. Lipa has since been managed by her father, Dukagjin Lipa.

TAP Music Publishing shared in a statement: “We wish Dua all the best for the future.” Anna Neville, TAP Music’s co-president, added: “This is an exciting time for our publishing company - we are expanding our services and teams globally and continue to add talented writers and artists to our already stellar roster.”

Yesterday, Lipa announced her first new song since the Barbie soundtrack’s “Dance the Night,” “Houdini.” She is also set to star in Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming film Argylle. As for more new music on the horizon, Lipa has said her next album will debut in 2024.
