Missy Elliot joins Lizzo on the bass-heavy “Tempo.”
Lizzo is riding quite the wave at the moment, following the two years delayed smash that is “Good As Hell,” the artist dropped “Juice” at the beginning of the year to critical success as well as the larger than life “Cuz I Love You.”
Well, Lizzo is now turning it up a notch by grabbing one of the biggest female rappers in the game, Missy Elliott!
The track doesn’t follow a usual structure from the get-go with the guitar solo, you know something special is coming! From the production leads where the track goes as Lizzo uses her impeccable flow over the trap-like beats – in fact, Lizzo easily holds her own against Elliott.
Elliott always manages to make sure all the lights are shining on her, she has a way of taking the track up a notch, and she does it yet again here.
Lizzo often gets the critical success she deserves, but it would be nice for her to gain a little more chart recognition, especially when tracks that aren’t even half as good are shooting to number one – I mean, this track probably won’t be that one, but it won’t be long before she gives us another mainstream pop smash!
