Our Queen Lizzo puts in the work in every aspect of her career to create a fun and positive atmosphere. When Lizzo commits to something, she commits. That is why we could not be more excited to experience her album release event in the Big Apple! With an album titled Special, we just knew she was going to pull out all the stops, and boy does she have a treat in store for us!
You are not going to want to miss the opportunity to experience the fully immersive musical lightshow. The event will feature an album playback performance from Lizzo herself and the incredibly iconic Big Grrrls. What more could we possibly want?! The event opens to the public on the 16th of July so hustle on down to Cipriani 25 Broadway if you want to get involved.
If you can’t make it down to New York, don’t you worry! The Lizzoverse is coming directly to your screens in a Livestream event hosted by the Amazon Music channel on Twitch. Make sure you’re watching at 6pm ET on July 15th! We love that we can all celebrate the release together and that fans outside of NYC get to be involved in this incredible event! We don’t know about you but this is going to be us in front of our computer screens all night:
What Songs Are We Looking Forward To?
As it’s an album release show we’re hoping that we get a full rundown of the album tracks. The tracklist has been revealed and we’re so excited to hear some of the new songs as well as the singles we’ve already heard. Here are just a few of the songs we’re most excited for:
‘About Damn Time’
We feel like this is already a modern classic! The single is so feel-good and catchy. It just makes us want to get up and have a boogie with Lizzo every time we hear it. And yes we may have spent many hours in front of the mirror perfecting the ‘About Damn Time’ TikTok dance routine. It’s so fun to get down to and we feel like Lizzo is going to bring all the energy to this one.
Whether it’s Anne-Marie, Katy Perry, or Stevie Wonder, we love a little birthday song. We can’t wait to add this song to the list. We hope this is a hype yourself up birthday love kind of song. Equally though, Lizzo has revealed recently that there are some darker songs that made the cut and this could potentially be one of them. Either way, we just know Lizzo is going to slay those vocals in the experience.
We love that Lizzo uses her platform to be a strong ally for the LGBTQ+ community. It seems like she’s continuing to use her voice to champion the liberation of the community and fight for their rights. Lizzo spoke about her allyship in an interview for Channel Q and we have a feeling this is one of the songs she’s said people are going to be very happy about. Here’s what she had to say:
I don’t have any intersections in my mind about the people who have been marginalized, who deserve to be celebrated and uplifted, so I feel very parallel to the queer community, because I’m fighting for the same freedoms that they’re fighting for. We can march together and make this a party. That’s why I’ve always been so connected to the Queer community. Drag Queens were the first people who put my music on, and saw my music, and identified heavily with it in the beginning. I would be so excited to do Pride this year for a few reasons. I can’t talk about it right now, but when the music comes out, I think people are going to be very happy.
Lizzo for Channel Q
We can’t wait to see this all unfold and are just so excited to have a whole new album of Lizzo music to fangirl over! Make sure you tune into the Livestream experience!
