Our self-empowering Queen Lizzo has blessed us with another banger visual for her new single ‘2 Be Loved’ from her critically acclaimed album Special. From the imagery to the wardrobe to a very sexy cameo, we at THP can’t get enough of this video and you shouldn’t waste another second living without experiencing this masterpiece.
‘2 Be Loved (Am I Ready)’ opens as a continuation or rather, a flashback to a previous time at the altar in ‘Truth Hurts.’ Instead of a groom waiting at the end of the pathway, we see an excited giddy Lizzo waiting for her beautiful bride to approach (who is also Lizzo!) Symbolizing a moment of reflection and realization, Lizzo abandons Lizzo for fear of commitment and insecurities, questioning, as the song suggests, whether she is ready for this step.
“How am I supposed to love somebody else? (Sheesh, sheesh, sheesh)
When I don’t like myself, like, ooh
Guess I better learn to like this, ooh (true)
It might take my whole life just to do (damn, hey, hey)
He call me Melly (ayy), he squeeze my belly (yeah)
I’m too embarrassed (ah) to say I like it
Girl, is this my boo? (Is this my boo?)
That’s why I’m asking you ’cause you know I’ve been through”
‘To Be Loved (Am I Ready)’ by Lizzo
As she runs away from her past self, she encounters the man of her dreams who is none other than legendary supermodel Tyson Beckford. In a twist of events, however, it turns out this was all a figment of her imagination from being lost in the desert, as her group of girlfriends comes to her rescue. In the end, we see Lizzo shine, decked out in diamonds from head to toe, glowing like the goddess. She realizes all she needs is her girls beside her, a drink in her hand, and a catchy beat to dance along to as she understands that sometimes love must come from within before you can give it to someone else.
This confident advocating Queen isn’t done with her year yet! It was just announced she will be performing at the VMA’s Sunday, August 28th with this hit, ‘2 Be Loved (Am I Ready)!’ Along with her VMA appearance, Lizzo is set to begin her official tour, The Special Tour on September 23 at Sunrise, FL’s FLA Live Arena with special guests Latto and Saucy Santana on select dates. We can’t wait and neither should you! How do you feel about Lizzo’s new video? What tour stop are you going to?
