Fresh off a Grammy win for “Record Of The Year,” the multi-platinum certified superstar Lizzo has teamed up with her close friend, the genre-defying artist SZA, for the stunning “Special”.
“Woke up this morning to somebody judging me/No surprise they judging me, don’t know who I’m ‘posed to be/I’m just acting up, I’m pressed as fuck and never saying sorry/Found it in the end, I can only do it for me,” SZA sings on the new opening verse. “You call sensitive and I call it superpower/You just like empathy ’cause you think it gives you power/All I know is only God can judge me/I don’t hide my heart, I wear it on me.”
The fan-favorite duo gave the highly-anticipated track its live debut during Lizzo’s sold-out LA Kia Forum show. An empowering song with sentimental importance to Lizzo herself and named by SZA as her personal favorite song on Lizzo’s “Special” album, the collab delivers unabashed positivity.
The heartwarming “Special” music video is also streaming via YouTube. Directed by award-winning cinematographer Christian Breslauer (Doja Cat, The Weeknd, SZA), the wholesome and uplifting visual highlights Lizzo’s natural superhero energy.
