Lizzo - Tempo (ft. Missy Elliott)

How can I possibly not talk about Lizzo and all the amazing things this woman is doing with her platform. Whether its just spreading a little black girl magic or it's talking about representation or not giving a fuck about what people think, she's doing her thing and doing it in her own manner. You can't hate on that ever. She's a trailblazer. She's a trend setter and she's making a whole generation of people feel good about themselves and doing her own damn thing. Marching to the beat of her own drum doesn't even begin to cover it. She's created her own brand new instrument and she's wearing it out.

Her latest single, "Tempo" is hot. It's fire. It's all the things that a song needs to be to get your ass up and moving. Hell, she's even held auditions via a social media contest to find her next back up dancers by having people submit videos of them dancing to the track and tagging it with the hashtag #fuckituptothetempo and that's what people have been doing. Rushing out to their social media platforms, dancing and giving it hell and just living their best damn life in hopes to be part of something historic at Coachella this year.  In "Tempo", she starts off with a bang and says

"Slow songs they for skinny hos
Can't move all of this here to one of those
I'm a thick bitch, I need tempo
Fuck it up to the tempo"

It's a straight up banger of a track and it will get a club hype in no time. Lizzo describes her music as "church with a twerk" and that's exactly what this is. It's just a damn hype song that will fit in perfectly with her other singles and just makes you feel good. Damn good.
