    The 31-year-old bares herself and parlays stereotypical insecurities into liberating strengths, hurling bombs of empowerment.

    The record is purposefully compact, genre-blending, unifying, reaffirming, devoid of corniness, with just two well-selected features that heighten but do not overshadow her performance. If other artists are clever, they’ll take note: Lizzo has just set the standard for how to make a perfect pop record.

    Lizzo is kinky and playful too, but the most sexy thing of all is her unlimited confidence in herself. She thinks big, dreams big, and achieves it all on this album.

    She’s got a sly sense of music history, which is how she can reach so far on Cuz I Love You.

    That none of this comes off as preachy or simply lame is a testament to both singers’ astute record-making skills. Though the streaming age requires pop stars to be fluent in multiple genres, Pink and Lizzo are expert in more than most.

    Over 11 songs in 33 minutes, Lizzo rarely lets up, a relentless assault that favors excess verging on camp over subtlety.

    Lizzo has something to say, and a smart way of saying it ... but the potency of what’s here would seem more potent still if it had been allowed a little room to breathe ... Instead, Cuz I Love You keeps its foot pressed down hard on the accelerator for half an hour in an attempt to ram-raid the charts.

Not only are theThis album is an electric blend of pop, hip hop, funk, rock, dance, and R&B, and is an absolute joy from start to finish. Not only are the songs well produced, Lizzo's vocals are very powerful. Despite incorporating so many genres into its musical composition, the album still manages to feel very cohesive, something difficult to achieve in many pop albums. Expand

    Drowning with empowering lyrics, catchy hooks, impressive vocals, and groovy instrumentals, Lizzo wrote the perfect cookbook for anyoneDrowning with empowering lyrics, catchy hooks, impressive vocals, and groovy instrumentals, Lizzo wrote the perfect cookbook for anyone looking for the best form of love… the one we give to ourselves. Front to back, Lizzo strips her soul with every piece of advice she ever received to transform each one into a beautiful song. If it sometimes feels a bit rudimentary and childish even, we are still pulled onto a world where any mirror will showcase the true diamond inside of us. Expand

    She sounds like a fat goat and Truth Hurt is one of the worst songs of all time. Why America is letting her have a hit... Also her personalityShe sounds like a fat goat and Truth Hurt is one of the worst songs of all time. Why America is letting her have a hit... Also her personality is just pathetic. She can't deal with criticism and she's obsessed with charts. You need to calm down, like can you just go away? Expand
