Dua Lipa and Jack Harlow have been cropping up in conversation together a lot lately, after rapper Jack named his new album track after the singer. Now, Jack has opened up about how Dua responded to the song, saying she was "thrown off" by the track when he first played it to her.

24-year-old Jack released his second studio album, titled Come Home The Kids Miss You, on 6th May, featuring a new song called 'Dua Lipa' which includes lyrics about the singer.

Up until now, Dua, 26, hasn't publicly reacted to the song, although Jack has shared details on what happened when the pair discussed it.

During an interview on The Breakfast Club radio show, Jack revealed that he had got in touch with Dua and played her the song over a FaceTime call, with the singer "thrown off" in response.

As well as the title being quite obviously in reference to Dua, lyrics also include, "Dua Lipa, I’m tryna do more with her than do a feature," with Jack explaining in the interview that the track was made out of "admiration".

He told radio hosts, "I wanted to get her blessing, so I FaceTimed her and played it for her because I didn’t want her to be blindsided by that or feel like creeped out or anything." Jack went on, "If she had said, 'Yo, I hate it. I don’t want it to come out,' it wouldn’t have come out."

Going on to share Dua's response, he said, "She was like, "Oh, I mean it’s not my song. I suppose it’s OK.' She was just kinda thrown off and she just kinda let it go." Jack then added that he and Dua had since spoken and made things "less awkward".
