“‘Illusion’ was the first song Caroline, Danny, Tobias, Kevin and I worked on together, and it really broke the ice for the record,” Dua shares. “It’s about knowing what you’re getting yourself into, but staying for the hell of it. The joke’s on them, it’s the fun of playing someone at their own game because ultimately you won’t fall for an illusion.”
Directed by Tanu Muino, the music video for “Illusion” features Dua alongside dancers, high divers, and synchronized swimmers at the Piscina Municipal de Montjuïc in Barcelona, Spain. The video culminates with Dua climbing a castell-inspired tower, a reference to the infamous Catalonian tradition. The iconic pool served as the location for the “Slow” music video from one of Dua’s favorite pop idols Kylie Minogue.

“Illusion” was co-written by Lipa, alongside album collaborators Caroline Ailin, Danny L. Harle, Tobias Jesso Jr. and Kevin Parker, and was co-produced by Harle and Parker. The thumping, rave up track follows “Training Season” and “Houdini” taken from Dua’s upcoming album Radical Optimism.
