Lizzo is an inspiration. We love her so much and we are definitely inspired by her. We want her Yitty shapewear (but will not join Fabletics, been there and done that and the cancelling of it was a nightmare). We watch all of her TikToks. We love her Instagram.
But most of all we love her music.
The singer released a new music video for her song, About Damn Time. She’ll be performing the song on this weeks Saturday Night Live.
With a new song comes a new album. Lizzo will be releasing, Special. Over time we’ve learned that album titles have a special meaning and this one is no different. While Lizzo was talking with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, she discussed the meaning behind the title.
“Special is multipurposeful, and can mean so many things. Specifically, I wrote a song on the album. It’s called ‘Special,’ so it’s named after… It’s the titular song,” Lizzo said on the show. “The album was called In Case Nobody Told You for a while, and then Max Martin came on and he helped me change the hook a little bit and restructured it. He was like, ‘Special, Special. The song is Special.’ I was like, ‘Okay.’ Then one day, I had this aha moment where I’m like, ‘Oh shit, the album is Special. Literally, the album is special, and I’m special.’ You know what I’m saying?”
She continued, “I want the person to hear this to feel special. The way that you feel when you say that word is like… In Case Nobody Told You is cool, it has that same kind of dark… Everything now has this special feel to it, and this glow, this sparkle. Ever since that’s the era I’m moving into. It’s out of the darkness and into the light. I feel like the album is an incredible body of music, which was super important to me. I wanted to create good f–king music that actually was cohesive, and meaningful, and rich and lush, and I think people is… It could be a grower, it could be a shower. I don’t care, it’s good. Once people discover it, it’s going to make them feel good and them know what’s up.”
We love that. Her music is always such a treat and we can’t wait to hear more. Special will be released on July 15th.
