January 2021: Dua Tells Rolling Stone Anwar Inspired Her Future Nostalgia Album
In her January 2021 cover story for Rolling Stone magazine, Dua opened up about how Anwar inspired the music behind her most recent album. "When I was creating the first album, a lot of what was going on in my life was about heartbreak. This time around, I was feeling so happy and things were going so well, I was like, 'OK, I need to be able to portray this feeling in a way that doesn't feel cheesy to me,'" she said. The singer added that being with Anwar was perhaps the most "comfortable" she'd ever felt in a relationship.
