Cuz I Love You
Cuz I Love You is all about Lizzo’s quest to embrace her inner strength, learning to be her own “Soulmate” and flex feminist body positivity.
She isn’t hung up on her past anymore — as she declares, “Only exes that I care about are in my fucking chromosomes.” In “Lingerie,” she makes lounging around in her underwear sound like a revolutionary act. Cuz I Love You follows through on the legend she’s been steadily building over the past few years. She’s a punk rocker at heart, like her mentors Sleater-Kinney — many Lizzo fans first heard her as the opening act on the riot-grrrl legends’ 2015 reunion tour. If you watched Someone Great on Netflix, you got blown away by the pivotal scene when Rolling Stone music critic Gina Rodriguez has a self-care moment listening to Lizzo declare, “I just took a DNA test / Turns out I’m 100 per cent that bitch.”
