Lizzo Is About To Sing, Rap And Flute Her Way Into Your Heart

You know that feeling you get when you read a new book, or listen to a new album, or encounter really any piece of art that makes you say to yourself, “This is what I needed right now”?

That’s the feeling we’re getting from Cuz I Love You, the new album from singer, rapper and flutist Lizzo.

In honor of this excellent piece of audio art, we’re reairing our delightful conversation with the multi-talented Minnesota musician from 2016.

Lizzo and Nerdette host Greta Johnsen talk about what inspired her 2016 EP Coconut Oil and how Lizzo became Lizzo.

And afterwards, your homework is, of course, to play Cuz I Love You on repeat.
