Lizzo Is Back With a Cardi B Collaboration, and Fans Are Celebrating

What you’ve heard is true: “Rumors” is the first single from Lizzo’s new era, and it’s a collaboration with Cardi B

The song and video dropped just after midnight on Friday, August 13, and features the two women in glamorous Greco-Roman-inspired getups. Lizzo sings among painted pottery, then dances atop columns with her crew, until (a pregnant) Cardi pops in for her verse. 

The song is catchy and very fun. I can imagine there are already half a dozen TikTok dances in the works, and that horns section? Play it again!

“While you’re spendin’ all your time tryna break a woman down / Realer shit is goin’ on, baby, take a look around / If you thought that I was ratchet with my ass hangin’ out / Just wait until the summer when they let me out the house, bitch,” Lizzo says on the song. Yes.

The title has already trended on Twitter alongside “Hercules,” with many fans noting the visual similarity to the seven muses. 

“Can we talk about the stunning fashion and looks??” asked one fan. 

Chloe Bailey, one half of Chloe X Halle, praised the song too, tweeting, “All the rumors are true yeaaa,” and then adding, “Whooo @lizzo @iamcardib ATE DOWNNNN . song been on repeat all morning. any time i feel down ima put that song on.”

“I definitely called Cardi ’cause she’s, I mean, she’s incredible,” Lizzo told E.T. Canada about the collaboration, per Revolt. “I’ve been wanting to work with her for years. Ask anybody at Atlantic [Records], the day she got signed I was like, ‘I want a song with Cardi B!’”

She continued, “So, when I finally had a song on the level, that was perfect for us, I hit her up and sent it to her and she loved it and sent her verse through. Because of COVID, you know, we couldn’t be together, but we FaceTimed. The rest is herstory.”
