Did You Notice The Symbolism In Dua Lipa's 'New Rules' Music Video?

By  August 19, 2017

100 million views, but did you notice the subtleties?

Dua Lipa released her music video for New Rules just over a month ago and the MV recently hit over 100 million views on YouTube.

The music video did so well not just because of its catchy tune but its unconventional storytelling style really appealed and resonated with a big percentage of the young singer's audience.

The empowering female anthem is accompanied by the portrayal of a group of friends helping Dua get over a recent breakup. And in return, the 22-year-old singer was able to likewise with her new found confidence.

If you were part of the group of people who contributed to most of the 100 million views, you would have noticed that a lot of symbolism was present which made everything that much cooler.

Flamingos were the reflection of the women in the music video and apparently these pink creatures are used to symbolise femininity and confidence. Some have discovered that the sofa in the living room represents either the toxic relationship or the ex-significant other.
