Review: “Cuz I Love You” — Lizzo

Although she calls herself “America’s next bop star,” the title track from Lizzo’s upcoming album veers more into banger territory than anything else. A distinct departure from the rapper/singer’s usual feel good sound, “Cuz I Love You” finds our heroine a bit love drunk, with a gritty, ballad-esque chorus to match. It’s a welcomed change of pace, one that solidifies what most of us already knew: Lizzo is anything but a one-note artist. There’s an exhilaration to the release that might’ve been lacking had we received another of her immaculate bops.
