Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” just got an ‘80s overhaul, and it is pretty fantastic.
The Tokyo-based producer who created the remix, Initial Talk, was inspired by Stacey Q’s “Two Of Hearts” and really ran with it.
The remix itself is accompanied by a grainy video that looks like it has been run through a VHS too many times. In it, we see footage from a long-ago Miss Teen Canada pageant, the dancing in which, may well be a subtle nod to the slick choreography in the original “New Rules” video.
The producer has a deep dedication to the sounds of the early MTV era. He has also put an old spin on a string of relatively modern high-charting artists, including Destiny’s Child, Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez.
In the wake of Dua Lipa’s massive hit and music video, check out Initial Talk’s ’80s rendition of “New Rules” below.
