"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.
