    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.

    If you don't feel self-empowerment only staring at this album cover, probably you a'int ready to appreaciate this greatness. Ruling the yearIf you don't feel self-empowerment only staring at this album cover, probably you a'int ready to appreaciate this greatness. Ruling the year with this gorgeous work, Melissa proves us that she's not only capable to be hitmaker with an old single, but she has more skills in store for us. Flute, stage presence and charismatic as hell, Lizzo may be the new supreme that we've been missing for a while Expand

    Extremamente empoderador. Retrata sobre assuntos muito atuais e importantes, com presença vocal muito forte.

She does not deserve to be body-shamed or criticized at all. This album is a cohesive and strong body of work. "Truth Hurts", "Good as Hell", and "Juice" are anthems for female empowerment and power boosters. I love these songs. "Cuz I Love You" is also a good song too. And I really love it when Lizzo plays flute when she performs her songs live. Expand

    There's a fresh new artist that involved hip-hop and R&B vibe with a particular style and funny, powerful messages.

    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
