In advance of Friday’s release of her new album Cuz I Love You, Lizzo brought a little “Juice” to Thursday night’s edition of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”.
Wearing a Crenshaw jersey while grasping a red plastic cup, the 30-year-old rapper started her performance while getting her hair braided by one of her backup dancers while the other busted some moves as she sang her new single, “Juice”.
Once her hair was done, Lizzo joined her dancers for an enthusiastic performance that involved some audience participation as she encouraged the “Kimmel” audience to get out of their seats and dance along.
Lizzo spoke to Entertainment Weekly about her new album, and feels confident it will be the breakthrough release that will propel her to the next level.
“It’s definitely the most fun and the most free record I’ve made,” she told the mag. “All the projects I’ve done before, it was like, ‘This is a good song.’ But with this project, I’m like, ‘Damn, I can’t wait to hear that s**t in the stadium!’”
Cuz I Love You dropped early Friday, and fans are already raving about the new release on Twitter.
