Dua Lipa has shelved a music video, already costing hundreds of thousands of pounds, due to concerns over its content amidst the Israel-Hamas conflict, The Sun reports.

Filmed in September before the Gaza conflict's escalation, the video depicted chaotic scenes, including brawling crowds, potentially echoing real-world violence.

A source explained that despite its playful intent, themes like car crashes, demolition, and explosions seemed inappropriate against the backdrop of recent events since October 7. This move aligns with sensitivity to global issues and affects the promotion of her forthcoming third album, featuring the single ‘Houdini’.
