2018 BRITs Nominations: Dua Lipa & Ed Sheeran Lead The Pack

Dua Lipa is queen supreme of the 2018 BRITs nominees, picking up five nominations – the most of any artist this year! The singer’s No.1 smash ‘New Rules’ vies for the British Single and British Video Of The Year titles plus her debut self-titled album is up for British Album Of The Year. She rounds off her nominations with nods for British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act.

Joining Dua in the British Female Solo Artist category this year are Jessie Ware, Kate Tempest, Laura Marling and Paloma Faith.

View the lyrics

One, one, one, one, one

Talking in my sleep at night
Making myself crazy
(Out of my mind, out of my mind)

Wrote it down and read it out
Hoping it would save me
(Too many times, too many times)

My love
He makes me feel like nobody else
Nobody else

But my love
He doesn’t love me, so I tell myself
I tell myself

One: Don’t pick up the phone

You know he’s only calling ’cause he’s drunk and alone

Two: Don’t let him in

You’ll have to kick him out again

Three: Don’t be his friend

You know you’re gonna wake up in his bed in the morning

And if you’re under him
You ain’t getting over him

I got new rules – I count ’em
I got new rules – I count ’em
I gotta tell them to myself
I got new rules – I count ’em
I gotta tell them to myself

I keep pushing forwards
But he keeps pulling me backwards
(Nowhere to turn, no way)
(Nowhere to turn, no)

Now I’m standing back from it
I finally see the pattern
(I never learn, I never learn)

But my love
He doesn’t love me, so I tell myself
I tell myself

I do
I do
I do

One: Don’t pick up the phone

You know he’s only calling ’cause he’s drunk and alone

Two: Don’t let him in

You’ll have to kick him out again

Three: Don’t be his friend

You know you’re gonna wake up in his bed in the morning

And if you’re under him
You ain’t getting over him

I got new rules – I count ’em
I got new rules – I count ’em
I gotta tell them to myself
I got new rules – I count ’em
I gotta tell them to myself

Practice makes perfect
I’m still tryna learn it by heart
(I got new rules – I count ’em)

Eat, sleep, and breathe it
Rehearse and repeat it, ’cause I (I got new)

One: Don’t pick up the phone (yeah)

You know he’s only calling ’cause he’s drunk and alone (alone)

Two: Don’t let him in (uh-ooh)

You’ll have to kick him out again (again)

Three: Don’t be his friend

You know you’re gonna wake up in his bed in the morning

And if you’re under him
You ain’t getting over him

I got new rules – I count ’em
I got new rules – I count ’em
(Whoa-ooh, whoa-ooh, whoa)
I gotta tell them to myself
I got new rules – I count ’em
(Baby, you know I count ’em)
I gotta tell them to myself

Don’t let him in, don’t let him in
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
Don’t be his friend, don’t be his friend
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
Don’t let him in, don’t let him in
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
Don’t be his friend, don’t be his friend
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
You’re gettin’ over him

Ed Sheeran follows close behind Dua with four nominations, also in the running for British Album Of The Year with ÷, and ‘Shape Of You’ also looking to take home British Single and British Artist Video Of The Year.

Liam Gallagher, Loyle Carner, Rag’n’Bone Man and Stormzy join Sheeran in the British Male Solo Artist category.

Elsewhere, despite being nominated in the British Single and Video Of The Year categories, Little Mix failed to be honoured in the British Group category. Vying for that title this year will be Gorillaz, London Grammar, Royal Blood, Wolf Alice and The xx.
