A couple of weeks ago, Lizzo revealed that she’s working on a new album with Mark Ronson via TikTok. It’s been two years since the Detroit-born singer-rapper dropped her Grammy-winning album CUZ I LOVE YOU and we’ve had no new music from her since.
Last week, fans lapped up Lizzo’s announcement of a “new era”, spearheaded by comeback single Rumors, which will drop this Friday. Lizzo has now also revealed that Rumors will feature none other than Cardi B, who posed next to Lizzo in the song’s promo image. Both musicians can be seen holding their middle fingers up, complete with gold acrylics sharp enough to do some serious damage and glistening jewellery to match.
Lizzo also posted a video of herself FaceTiming Cardi B. “Good morning, motherfucker!” she shouted, “that’s what’s featuring y’all, period!” Cardi B responded with, “😍😍😍you really think they ready?” True to their reputations as two of the music industry’s favourite personalities, the duo also joked with each other about the collaboration on Twitter.
In celebration of Rumors’ announcement, Lizzo tweeted for the first time since April last year, having previously given up the platform due to constant trolling. “Hey y’all.. Heard I was trending so I decided to come back on here.. what I miss?” she posted. Cardi B welcomed her back and users couldn’t get enough of the interaction: “I’m really crying rn and I ain’t heard the full song and Cardi’s part yet, I know this song finna be good as hell”.
Cardi B’s feature on Rumors comes hot off the back of mid-July’s Wild Side single with Normani. But Lizzo is no stranger to a hot collab or two, either. While we wait with baited breath for the brand new Lizzobanger, check out some of her best joint musical efforts below.
