Lizzo Returns to the Pop Rap Scene With a New Album, “Cuz I Love You”

Written by | Entertainment, Music


Leave it to Lizzo: she tickled our funny bones while looking for her “Phone,” and empowered all kinds of beauty (including gender-non-conformity) with her video of “Good As Hell.” If you’ve been clamoring for more from this phenomenon, you’re in luck: April 19, she drops her new album, Cuz I Love You. Fans are already gagging over the title single, which recalls Lauryn Hill’s masterpiece, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and a video that mixes in the sultry allure of Christina Aguilera’s “Ain’t No Other Man.”

Lizzo has been center stage at many a Pride celebration, in addition to the landmark lesbian event The Dinah. However, she hasn’t definitively answered questions about her own orientation. “When it comes to sexuality or gender, I personally don’t ascribe to just one thing,” she told Billboard. “That’s why the colors for LGBTQ+ are a rainbow! Because there’s a spectrum.” Love that.
