Lizzo’s fourth studio album Special has landed on playlists and her multi-genre steez lives up to the anticipation. She grabs disco, pop, R&B and funk with the same kind of conviction she had on her breakthrough album Cuz I Love You three years ago. There is always the concern that an artist can not follow up their most acclaimed work with more substance but Lizzo shoots down the naysayers from the first note of album opener “The Sign.” Fans were given a clue back in the spring when the first single the Nile Rodgers’-influenced “About Damn Time” was released. Lizzo sings about wellness, love, her artistry, good times and of course her favorite social media spectacle; twerking. Special adds more pleasure to the soundtrack of 2022 and the tour kicks off on September 23rd.
