Lizzo is releasing her major label debut, Cuz I Love You, in April, and the title track offers a fiery taste of her incredibly vocal and genre range. It’s the second single off the LP, following up the retro “Juice.”
“Cuz I Love You” starts with a bang: Lizzo belts “I’m crying/Cuz I love you” at the top of her longs before a horn and percussive-heavy band join in. On the song, the star sings about how she’s never been in love but has grown tired of her past approaches to romance. Now, she’s finally catching feelings for someone special and is getting used to these newfound emotions.
In the black-and-white video, Lizzo is seen in a church confessional, somberly singing the song. She is later in front of a flower-laden altar delivering the song as sermon to an audience of men in white tank tops who all begin sobbing while staring into the camera.
Cuz I Love You will be released on April 19th. It’s Lizzo’s third full-length LP overall, but her first on a major label. It’s her first non-single release since her 2016 EP Coconut Oil. She’ll play Coachella in April, which will then be followed by a headlining U.S. tour.
