Tempo | Lizzo x Missy Elliott
When I saw Lizzo post yesterday that this song was coming, I was super excited to hear this collab. I can only imagine how Lizzo herself feels. It is evident in her music and visuals that Missy has had some sort of influence on her music. Reppin’ for the big girls per usual, Lizzo gives a low-key anthem for the non-skinny girls. Missy provides a whole verse on the song and again, I’m sure Lizzo was stanning. I will say that although the song is definitely a bop, I ironically imagined a more up tempo track when we got the little teaser yesterday. It may sound cliche, but a Timbaland production would have probably put this song over the top. Because of the messaging and Lizzo’s natural ability to capture an audience through her music, I think the song will be received well and I know they have a super dope video planned. I mean, it’s only right, right? Along with many other female rappers right now, Lizzo is definitely making waves and adding to her ever-growing fan base with each release.
