Dua Lipa vs. Human League - Don't You Want New Rules? (Christian Wheel Mash-Up)

I have loved Dua Lipa's sound from the very first time I heard her back in 2015. She put out a song called "Hotter Than Hell" which became a marginal hit and I've been hooked ever since. She's a great vocalist with a great look. Kinda reminds me of Nelly Furtado with different vocal qualities but similar pop-sensibilities. In any case, when "New Rules" became a worldwide smash I realized it was in the right tempo and key to mix with many New Wave hits of the 80's. "New Rules" has a strange beat-count at the hook, adding an extra measure to transition between the pop verses and the drum-and-bass-influenced chorus, so I had to accommodate for that when adding in The Human League's amazing classic, "Don't You Want Me." It still feels a little awkward to me but there's not much that can be done about it. I'm probably nitpicking and most people may not even notice. Here's the mash-up in all its pop gooeyness.
