Lizzo is back!
The star unveiled her highly-anticipated and fittingly titled new single, “About Damn Time,” on Thursday (April 14), via Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic Records. The track is the introduction to her upcoming album, Special, set to release on July 15.
“Turn up the music, let’s celebrate/ I got a feelin’ I’m gon’ be OK/ OK, all right, it’s about damn time,” the Grammy winner sings in the feel-good chorus, and in the accompanying video, she exits a “Stressed & Sexy” support group and trades her sweatsuit for the ultimate glam look. She gave her fans a little behind-the-scenes peek at the video through a live clip, that you can watch here.
The new single isn’t the only exciting news Lizzo has got up her sleeves this spring The singer-songwriter/flutist extraordinaire also just announced her shapewear brand Yitty, which carries sizes for “every damn body,” with a photo of the company’s name temporarily tattooed onto her backside.
Additionally, she’ll be doing a double gig on Saturday Night Live this weekend (April 16), taking on the role of both host and musical guest.
Special is the follow-up to Lizzo’s breakthrough 2019 album, Cuz I Love You. The album peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 albums chart dated September 7, 2019, and spent an impressive 127 weeks total on the chart.
