LIZZO – Announces Debut Album ‘Cuz I Love You’

Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic recording artist Lizzo has announced the release of her long awaited full-length debut album. CUZ I LOVE YOU arrives on Friday, April 19th.

Lizzo kicked off what is sure to be an epic 2019 with the release of her acclaimed new single, “Juice,” available now via all digital music retailers and streaming services.

“Juice” has fast proven Lizzo’s most popular track to date, with close to 3x as many first week streams as any of her previous releases. What’s more, “Juice” was greeted with a range of worldwide radio play and unprecedented rave reviews, with Entertainment Weekly hailing the single as “the latest (and poppiest yet) from the infectiously poised 30-year-old artist, whose ascent in the hip-hop scene has been as rousing to watch as her live performances…Let ‘Juice’ be your introduction to an uplifting up-and-comer.”

“From the first moments, it’s clear this will be a favourite and become the ‘juice’ that gets you through the year. Rolling out the track with an electric guitar reminiscent of Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream,’ Lizzo continues to release next-level bangers, making us all impatient as we wait for her next album.” “Great news everybody,” exclaimed British GQ. “We’re just four days into January and we’ve got the best song of the year, and it just won’t get topped.” Rolling Stone agreed, declaring, “Four days into the new year, Lizzo released the first great song of 2019. The Minneapolis singer-rapper-flautist specializes in propulsive self-empowerment anthems — feel-good songs about feeling good about yourself — and ‘Juice’ may be her finest yet, a near-perfect retro-funk nugget that would have felt just right on a mirror-balled dance floor in 1982… If life were fair, (‘Juice’) would be as big as ‘Uptown Funk.’”

“Juice” marks the latest in a recent string of extraordinary singles that includes “Boys,” “Fitness,” and “Truth Hurts,” all available now for individual streaming and download. All three are joined by companion visuals, streaming now at Lizzo’s official YouTube channel

2018 was yet another amazing year for Lizzo, as she was featured on several “Best Of” lists for her hit track “Boys,” including Time’s “10 Best Songs of 2018,” Pitchfork’s “100 Best Songs of 2018,” and Paste’s “50 Best Songs of 2018” and more. “Fitness” was also included in Paper Magazine’s “Top 100 Songs of 2018.” Highlighted also by a stellar live performance at Lollapalooza – Lizzo was named #1 on Time Out’s “The Five Best Things We Saw At Lollapalooza on Friday” – as well as a remarkable show at New York City’s MoMa PS1 Warm Up 2018 and multiple high profile appearances during New York Fashion Week.

COCONUT OIL, Lizzo’s hugely acclaimed Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic Records debut EP, was released in October 2016 to unanimous critical acclaim and popular success. COCONUT OIL is highlighted by the hit single, “Good As Hell,” also featured on 2016’s BARBERSHOP: THE NEXT CUT (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK). Rolling Stone singled out the track in its “Best Pop Albums of 2016 So Far,” explaining that, “Despite these albums, pop still remains a genre for singles. Lizzo’s boisterous ‘Good As Hell,’ produced by omnipresent 2016 producer Ricky ‘Wallpaper” Reed,’ is a straight-no-chaser shot of self-confidence with a call-and-response chorus.”
