Lizzo Dedicates Video To Boys

Lizzo has admiration for all kinds of men and she flaunts her interest by directing addressing them in the video for “Boys.” Her costume changes, Queen-like poses, and bold nudity reveal more of an obsession with creating body-positive art than the pursuit of men. Lizzo’s last single, “Fitness” was also a self-image workout with a high-energy video. The Minneapolis-based artist moves through the “Boys” video with a crew just as invested in being sexy and free. In 2015, she released her most recent full-length album, Big Grrrl Small World and since then she has shared a handful of singles. She is touring this summer and tickets are on sale now.
