Introducing Lizzo: Your Next Music Obsession

I’m sure the name Lizzo is starting to become common knowledge at the time of me writing this. She’s practically blown up due to what I would best describe as “perfect timing.” Everything just seemed to work in her favor around the same time. But for those who don’t know, Lizzo has actually been in the game for years previously releasing two albums Lizzobangers and Big Grrrl Small World both to critical acclaim. Her most recent release, the very well-received Cuz I Love You is actually her third full-length record and her second major-label release after her Coconut Oil EP. I remember the first time I came across Lizzo was a few years back on a short-lived MTV program called Wonderland which created a unique environment for artists to come together and perform some of their new stuff. This is way past the point of MTV actually caring about music, since they stopped actually showing videos years before it, but it was cool to see that they were trying. Admittedly, I was watching for two of my favorite artists JoJo and Hayley Kiyoko, and Lizzo didn’t appear as a performer, she was actually one of the hosts of the show. I wasn’t aware that she was an artist at the time. There was one time when I saw her freestyling with an artist, but I didn’t think anything of it. I just thought she was having a bit of fun. Well, little did I know that this Lizzo girl was soon to become a household name, and honestly, a top contender for the next Grammy ceremony.

Lizzo Lizzo Lizzo. She’s the talk of the town.

Everywhere I go, everyone’s talking about Lizzo. “You gotta listen to her” “I didn’t know that she was so popular!” “Did you see that video of her playing the flute and rapping?” Everyone loves Lizzo, and they SHOULD. There are some people in this world you have to like, and if you don’t, you’re either an asshole or that person slept with your wife. Lizzo has too much charm and genuine charisma to hate. She has the energy of a best friend that’ll watch you get blackout drunk, take care of you and then tell you all the dumb shit you did the next day. She’s got good vibes. She is definitely your moms favorite Ex; when you two broke up your mom didn’t speak to you for a couple days and still sends Lizzo Christmas cards. Lizzo is the one person at your job who can come in late and the boss never gets mad, they’re just happy that she’s there to brighten the room up. When I found out that Lizzo had an album dropping, I jumped at the chance to listen to her. Partially because I had heard so many good things, and mostly because I wanted to fit in with all the cool kids on social media. It’s wild how peer pressure has grown to the digital age. I really want some people I’ve never met or will ever meet to think I have good taste in music. What’s the point of being popular if you can’t actually see people? It’s wild that I’m hype to get some internet likes from some cyber strangers. 2019 is weird. But enough of my existential crisis. Let’s get into Lizzo’s new album Cuz I Love You.

Lizzo’s Puts on a Sonic Self Exclusive Party That Is Impossible to Not Motivate and Effectuate

Sometimes an album can baffle you so distinctively, my ears can’t believe how debilitating this Cuz I love You album by Lizzo is and that coming from me is not overhype or any hype for that matter. Any album that is boosting the element of self-esteem with a continuum of ingenuity & intention is a Gold contender in my opinion. For her newest collection Cuz I Love You, it just magnetizes its way in the lane of Classics for the long haul of it all. This is the first album that Lizzo releases under a major label deal although she is by far not a rookie in this industry as she dropped her debut studio album Lizzobangers in October of 2013 under Total Gross National Product. Due to the fact that she is now signed to Atlantic, it’s definitely hard to miss the commercial presence of Cuz I Love You and Lizzo herself. In interviews on popular television shows & hit radio stations the singer can be seen being herself for the most part which is how you know you’re getting the authentic version of the musician Lizzo on her latest album. Those are the best albums when you know that it’s not fakery and that the person that is behind the act aren’t putting on a front. When you think about it discovering an authentic layer of an artist on the project platformed by a major label is just the beginning part, for the music to be moving enough to touch you in a way where you’ll kind of never forget it is a separate ballgame. Somehow (though it should come as no surprise, due to verifiable potential in her discography) Lizzo creatively packs this combination into a 1, 2 knockout album. Maybe this just shows us that this is one Pop, R&B/Soul artist that we surely can gain a lot from, whether it's soundtracking amazing experiences we have in our lives, to a therapeutic and physiological upliftment.
