Dua Lipa performed “New Rules” and “Homesick” on this week’s “SNL.” The songs are off her self-titled album Dua Lipa. Check out the video below of Lipa’s performances of “New Rules” and “Homesick” on “Saturday Night Live.”

This marks the first time Dua Lipa has been the musical guest on the sketch comedy show. When it was announced three weeks ago that Lipa was going to be on “SNL,” the 22-year-old singer tweeted that she was “nervous,” but that it was a “dream come true” for her. And in a video posted by “Saturday Night Live” hours before the show, Lipa admitted that when she first stood on the iconic stage in studio 8H in Rockefeller Center, she burst into tears. Still, she kept her composure during the show.

In the music video for “New Rules,” Lipa can be seen in a room in Miami’s The Confidante hotel with eight of her friends, who are comforting her and trying to stop the singer from getting back together with an ex-boyfriend. After pampering each other in the hotel suite, the roles reverse with Lipa listing off the rules for why one of her girlfriend shouldn’t allow an ex back in to her life. Since its release in July, the video has been viewed close to 1 billion times.

“New Rules” has also been a commercial success. It peaked at number eight on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. It also reached number one on the Mainstream Top 40 and Dance Club Songs charts, as well as 12 on the Adult Top 40 chart.

For her second performance on “SNL,” Lipa sang the slow ballad “Homesick.” The single was released in June and, to date, the audio for it has been listened to nearly 2.8 million times on YouTube. After “SNL,” Lipa resumes her “The Self-Titled Tour” on Monday in Denver, then she’ll hit the stage in Salt Lake City on Tuesday and Los Angeles on Thursday.

Following some more concerts on the West Coast in February, the singer next heads to Australia for a couple of performances in March. Lipa then returns to Europe for dates through June before coming back to the U.S. in July. Check out the video below of Lipa’s performances of “New Rules” and “Homesick” on “Saturday Night Live.”
