The title track of his third studio album envelops us in a bang that immediately takes us back to the musical’s sonic scope. ‘The Phantom of the Opera’; however, the guitar’s explosion soon gives way to a sudden instrumental change, allowing the marked subtlety of the piano to accompany the voice of our lead singer and the exuberant depth of touches that recall the early years of trap. Here, Lizzo uses and abuses her extensive vocal weave, exploring the purposeful dissonance that encompasses the chorusretreating when speaking sung of the rap and even daring the extremes of falsetto It’s from fry.
Lizzo has already collaborated with several well-known and important singers in the music industry – and, in one of them, she teamed up with the legendary Missy Elliott for one of the best tracks ‘Cuz I Love You’: “Tempo” opens with a powerful guitar that can guide us into an onslaught of the purest rock – but that is until the song actually starts. Elliott and Lizzo opt to return to rap and, more than that, to a synthetic minimalism executed with detail and with maximum attention to sound details, moving towards an interesting conclusion. While the lyrics are not the most original or uplifting, the few mistakes found here are overshadowed by the harmonic presence of the artists, uniting two generations in a metalinguistic and explicit arc.
3. “TRUTH HURTS”
Lizzo has already proved to be a shrewd performer and, for this reason, he always adopted the hybridity of genres in his productions – which is why he managed to achieve a meteoric fame in such a short time, being even consecrated as the Entertainer of the Year by the prestigious magazine TIME. And it is from these incursions that the artist manages to bring to life the refreshing and passionate delineation of “Truth Hurts”calling our attention by deconstructing the trapo synth-pop and even the rap for an effervescent reconstitution.
Em “Juice”Lizzo pays homage and a deep reverence to The Supremes and many other groups embraced by the Motown Records in the 1960s, giving life to an impeccable track that invites us to the dance floors and that distils a narrative acidity that delights us from the first touches. The impeccable production of Ricky Reed it just doesn’t overcome the artist’s energetic and narcotic surrender, which invites us to a sensorial return to the 1970s and 1980s, without losing sight of its modernized revamping.
1. “GOOD AS HELL”
Despite ‘Cuz I Love You’ be considered Lizzo’s cousin work, performer already demonstrated his incredible lyrical and musical ability a few years before, mainly with the release of “Good as Hell”. O lead single from ‘Coconut Oil’ it would only drop in popularity some time after it was officially released, establishing itself as one of the best, if not the best song of the artist. mixing soul-pop, R&B e hip-hopthe flawless track explores themes of empowerment and melds very positive messages into a danceable, engaging phonographic structure, courtesy of Lizzo’s composition and Reed’s production.
