The singer introduced the discharge date of the file ahead to final week after snippets of it had been leaked on the Internet.
But throughout a chat on Jessie Ware’s Table Manners podcast, Dua stated that she’s attempting to keep in mind that dropping the album early was optimistic for followers struggling in the course of the coronavirus lockdown.
“I guess it’s been a bit of a weird week because the album leaked, which is a f**king pain in the a*se,” she stated. “It’s been an emotional rollercoaster. Some things just come at you thick and fast sometimes. I don’t really know what kind of happens, but it is what it is. And for me, I’m just like f**k it. People just get to hear it sooner if they want to hear it. If they want to wait and stream it on their streaming services, cool. That’s the only way I can see it.
“I assume some issues simply occur for a motive and I believe folks possibly want it now greater than ever.”
Dua is one of a host of musicians who have been forced to postpone tour dates due to the health crisis. And while she described the decision to postpone her U.K. and European tour dates as a “little bit garbage”, she acknowledged that there are “larger issues on the planet”.
“My U.Ok. and Europe (tour) is now occurring (in 2021), in order that will likely be our yr – as a result of I believed 2020 can be,” the 24-year-old smiled.
