Lizzo Discusses Receiving Hateful Criticism, Claiming That The Heart Of Her New Album Is “Love”

Lizzo’s fourth studio album will be released in a few days, and her fans can’t wait to hear what she’s been working on. Due to her extensive touring schedule, Yitty brand promotion, and work on her upcoming album, Special, Lizzo hasn’t had much free time.

Since her 2019 album Cuz I Love You, the singer-rapper hasn’t released a full-length album. During a recent interview with Zane Lowe for Apple 1, Lizzo spoke extensively about her most recent album.

“I love this album. Come on. I’m very good at music, man,” she said. “I would just say that. I studied music in college. I’ve written songs my whole life. I’m proud. I think taking my… I wanted to rush it so many times. There were some points….woo! But in this process, I was like, ‘I got the album, okay? Let’s put it out. The singles are done.’ And those songs didn’t even make the album.”

“I’m just proud of how patient I was with myself and with my art. And I took the time to write the songs that need to come out, the stories that I wanted to share, that people should hear,” she went on. Lizzo also discussed the hate she has encountered since becoming famous, saying that “love is the heart of this album.”
