Lizzo, “Go”

Minneapolis rapper Lizzo delivered what we can only describe as wicked hot fire in her debut single “Batches & Cookies” that came through a few weeks ago, and had an incredible video to match. In the second track, “Go”, an exclusive premiere for you right here, we're seeing a softer, more drawled-out version of Lizzo that banks on wider, electronic beats and a tribute to ours and everyone's favorite alcohol, Jack Daniels. Touched on by a brief but snappy verse mid-song, “Go” shows an alternate side to Lizzo, one who isn't too hasty to rage or throw shade. This whole different side to the phenomenal rapper is throwing us, but in the best way possible—she's both versatile and introspective.

Lizzo's LIZZOBANGERS comes out through Totally Gross National Product on October 15. She's out on tour now and can be caught at the dates below.
