The 30-year-old rapper-singer just shared another taste off her forthcoming album Cuz I Love You, which is set to arrive on April 19. Not just any track either, but one that features her idol Missy Elliott. Lizzo has mentioned numerous times that Elliott’s “The Rain” inspired her. Naturally, when she crafted this bop, “Tempo,” she hoped Missy would hop on.
“This new one I heard it, and it was so obviously Missy,” Lizzo told Travis Mills for Beats 1. “I was like I hope she blesses me with a verse.” She added, “Like you never know, you send it to your idols, you never know if they gonna send it back.”
Check out their ferocious collaboration below.
