Lizzo masters the art of bold, bouncy, and bombastic pop on ‘Cuz I Love You’

by Jack Gillespie For the past few years, it has become more and more obvious that Lizzo has what it takes to become a star. Not only has she proven with songs like “Boys," “Good As Hell," and “Truth Hurts” that she has a knack for writing tracks just begging to blow up, but she brings the kind of larger-than-life personality. Both in and out of her music she has made it clear what makes an artist like Cardi B an absolute phenomenon. With the release of the track “Juice”, it seemed like are the pieces were about to come together. On this disco rap throwback, Lizzo comes in with enough energy to light up an entire city. On top of that, she brings a masterfully crafted instrumental that brings a sharp, modern twist to an often overlooked era of hip hop. https://youtu.be/XaCrQL_8eMY “Juice” hinted at a promising 2019 for Lizzo, but it was everything that followed that made that promise a reality. Not only was her first record on a major label announced, but the 2nd and 3rd singles for said record showed a much more versatile, fully developed performer, as well as a better array of beats. All signs were pointing toward Cuz I Love You being one of the best pop album of the year. For the most part, the signs were right.
