Grammy Award-winning artist Lizzo has officially announced the release of her highly-anticipated new album, “Special,” available everywhere now via Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic Records.
Produced by such award-winning hitmakers as Lizzo’s longtime collaborator Ricky Reed, Mark Ronson (Adele, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus), Max Martin (The Weeknd, Coldplay, Britney Spears) and Benny Blanco (Rihanna, Katy Perry, Maroon 5), “Special” includes new tracks “2 B Loved (Am I Ready),” and the uplifting title track “Special.” The full album will sport 12 songs, including one apparently named after Coldplay.
On July 7, she shared a video clip of herself dancing by a pool wearing an embellished mask that shielded her face.
“Special” also includes instant hit, the worldwide smash “About Damn Time,” currently #2 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” after lighting up TikTok with over 5M creates, hitting TikTok’s #1 overall sound in the US.
In the Christian Breslauer–directed video, Lizzo flees a “Stressed & Sexy” support group in a video that features an office building with light-up disco flooring and a scene where she plays flute while standing atop the water in a swimming pool.
