Lizzo took the world by storm. Her platinum album, which has been streamed over 5 billion times and has won multiple Grammy Awards, brought mega hits like “Juice” or “Jerome” emerged. Even older songs like “Good as Hell”, “Truth Hurts” and “Boys” went viral in 2019 like no other, with TIME Magazine and Entertainment Weekly even taking the American “Entertainer Of The Year” choose.
The reason for Lizzo’s unbelievable success is not only her enormous stage presence and rousing powerhouse voice, but above all her message. The singer mediates with her always direct lyrics and energetic soundsthat self-confidence should not depend on social acceptance. Also in their new release “Rumors” it is no different.
