Lizzo told Zane Lowe on New Music Daily on Apple Music 1, "I think that the music really is going to speak for itself. I'm writing songs about love from every direction, and I hope that I can turn a little bit of the fear that's been running rampant in this world, energetically into love."

About Lizzo

Lizzo has had a lot going on this month. Along with announcing her tour and releasing her single, she did double duty by hosting and performing on Saturday Night Live earlier this month. Her Amazon Prime Video reality show, Lizzo’s Watch Out For The Big Grrrls is available for streaming.

Lizzo was also featured on the cover of Variety this month, where she spoke of body inclusivity and how she's doing her part to bring positivity to plus-size women.

Lizzo told Variety that body inclusivity in popular culture is "happening very slow and select, and there’s a long way to go. But I have seen it budge, and that’s better than nothing.”
