Pop star Lizzo premiered her new single "Tempo" on March 20. She teams up with hip-hop legend Missy Elliott on the booming track.

"Tempo" is the latest single from Lizzo's upcoming third studio album, Cuz I Love You. It follows the lead single "Juice," which became a viral hit. Lizzo taps into rap music with the help of Elliott on "Tempo."

Lizzo wrote "Tempo" with Elliott and producer Warren "Oak" Felder. Slinky synths and hip-hop beats back Lizzo flaunting her curves on the dance floor. "I'm a thick b**ch / I need tempo," she sings. Elliott comes through at the halfway point and reps more of Lizzo's target audience on her guest verse. "I'm big-boned with nice curves," Elliott spits. "Tempo" is a body positive club banger that knocks with confidence.

"Tempo" is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Lizzo's Cuz I Love You album will be released on April 19. Along with headlining the Coachella music festival, she will also kick off her Cuz I Love You Tour next month with Ariana Grande co-writer Tayla Parx as an opening act.

Earlier this year, Lizzo covered the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive" for the "Happy Death Day 2U" soundtrack. The song played during the movie's credits.
