The choreography for one of Dua Lipa's tours got a little more "physical" than expected.

In a recent interview with Sirius XM's The Morning Mash Up, the pop star, 28, revealed that she was forced to change the choreography for her Future Nostalgia tour, per Music News.

“I fell over on my tour, I think once in Barcelona, once in Milan on the same spot, and it was just the hottest week in Europe," Lipa began.

She continued: “And so some of my dancers were just sweating a little bit extra. And so I slipped on a little sweat puddle and we kind of had to change the choreo so I don’t get a little puddle of sweat right where I’m about to start dancing.”

Lipa noted that accidents like that are “all part of the experience” when touring, adding: “You got to get a little bruised.”

The "Don't Start Now" artist released her third studio album, Radical Optimism, on Friday, May 3.

When she unveiled the LP's album title and artwork in March, Lipa shared a statement revealing the meaning behind Radical Optimism: "A couple years ago, a friend introduced me to the term radical optimismIt’s a concept that resonated with me, and I became more curious as I started to play with it and weave it into my life. It struck me – the idea of going through chaos gracefully and feeling like you can weather any storm."

She added that she found herself "looking through the music history of psychedelia, trip hop, and Britpop" when working on the record.

"It has always felt so confidently optimistic to me, and that honesty and attitude is a feeling I took into my recording sessions," Lipa said.

Ahead of the LP's release, the "Houdini" performer also shared in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, that she "wrote 97 songs" for the project in a physical notebook purchased from CVS.

"I started writing for this album in 2021, and I just wanted to write my ideas down," she told host Jimmy Kimmel. "So, I went down to CVS, and I just bought a random notebook. Had I have known how important that book would’ve been, maybe I would’ve gotten a more fancy one."

Lipa is set to kick off her Radical Optimism tour on Wednesday, June 5 in Berlin, before heading to cities like Lisbon, Madrid and London.
