Lizzo – Tempo ft. Missy Elliott (mp3 download)
Lizzo drops a brand new song titled Tempo featuring music legend Missy Elliott. Available for download and streaming, Lizzo continues her rise to stardom on the music front which we just love. Her new song “Tempo”, the latest taste of the forthcoming ‘Cuz I Love You.’ Tempo” follows the throwback party jam “Juice” and the stunning ballad “Cuz I Love You”, with all three tracks well summarizing Lizzo’s breadth of talent.
The slapping ’90s beat is perfect for Missy, which is exactly what Lizzo thought when she first heard the track. “I was like, ‘I hope she blesses me with a verse,’” the “Boys” artist told Beats 1’s Travis Mills of reaching out to the iconic rapper. “Like, you never know, you send it to your idols, you never know if they gonna send it back.”
Send it back she did, adding bars like “Ice on my neck like brrr/ I’m big-boned with nice curves/ Look at me, I know I look grrrd.” Her lyrics fall right in line with the thick girl anthem that has Lizzo spitting on the chorus, “Slow song, they for skinny hoes/ Can’t move all of this here to one of those/ I’m a thick bitch, I need tempo.”
