Days after releasing her third studio album and pulling double duty at Saturday Night Live, Dua Lipa kept the party going with a surprise pop-up concert in New York City.

The "Levitating" singer set up shop in Times Square on Sunday (May 5) for the impromptu performance, where she performed four songs from her latest album Radical Optimism, which dropped Friday (May 3). In the limited set, which she teased a couple hours prior as a "special performance" for her fans, she sang "Training Season," "Houdini," "Happy for You" and "Illusion," per People.

On Saturday, Dua returned to SNL for the third time as a performer and her first time hosting the long-running sketch comedy show. After poking fun in her opening monologue at being called "Dula Peep," she went on to show off her comedy skills in various hilarious sketches and perform two of her newer songs, "Happy for You" and "Illusion," throughout the night.

Dua's SNL appearance came one day after the release of her new album, Radical Optimism, her first in four years and a follow-up to her highly-lauded sophomore project Future Nostalgia. After dropping the album on Friday, she shared a heartfelt message on social media, writing that she is "grateful beyond belief for what this album has gifted me during the time of writing and i'm so happy/relieved/excited/nervous/crying/fizzing it's finally yours."
