Yesterday, Jan. 4, Dua Lipa apologized for using a racial slur in a Mila J cover she recorded in 2014. As the YouTube video of her singing “Smoke, Drink, Break Up” resurfaced, the singer felt the need to address the issue, reports Spin.

She wrote on Twitter:

“In relation to my 2014 cover I never meant to offend or upset anyone. I didnt say the full word but I can admit I shouldnt have gone there at all and that a different word could’ve been recorded altogether to avoid offence and confusion. I wasn’t thinking it through at the time.

“I always stand up for social justice and I am very sorry to anyone that I have offended.”
