When Lizzo released her 2016 EP Coconut Oil, it felt like the entire music world paused and was like “wait — what — who is this?” It’d been a long time since a new artist was able to transcend the underground R&B world to the bleeding edge of pop whilst keeping her personality and lovable character at the forefront of her music.
With songs about loving yourself (“Scuse Me”) and a hilarious track about misplacing your phone after a night out with the girls (“Phone”) it was a breath of fresh air to see a #thicc R&B chick bring it as hard as dare I say Beyonce (Fight me).
Lizzo is the truth, and she’s coming to the Paper Tiger on Saturday, November 4 to remind us that queens come in all shapes and sizes.
