As of early Friday morning, Lizzo is the “highest streaming b*tch” on Spotify according to her Twitter account. So let’s celebrate by acknowledging her best self-lovin’ tunes.
Lizzo’s whole brand has been about self confidence, like body positivity and loving who you are.
Loving yourself unconditionally and not letting outside factors diminish that, especially men and haters.
“Yeah, I’m my own soulmate, I know how to love me, I know I’m always gonna hold me down.”
This is the self love anthem! ‘Soulmate’ by Lizzo is the fourth song features on her latest album ‘Cuz I Love You’ and it’s a soulful bounce song that preaches self-love in its lyrics.
In the second pre chorus, she expresses that true love only happens when you start to love yourself first.
“True love ain’t something you can buy yourself
True love finally happens when you by yourself
So if you by yourself, then go and buy yourself
Another round from the bottle on the higher shelf”
“I am free, yeah yeah
Come water me, oh oh
Love you so, but if you don’t
I have to leave, oh no”
Lizzo explained this song’s meaning in an interview with NY Daily News.
“‘Water Me’ is all about feeling neglected, feeling undernourished in a relationship, literally needing to drink more water, needing to focus on myself because it’s armor,” She said. “We gotta build this armor because the world right now is a battlefield.”
Let Em Say
“So let ‘em say what they gonna say
They gonna feel how they gonna feel
But I love it
I love it, baby
Hey, you should too”
This song, by Lizzo and Caroline Smith is about letting haters say what they want to say and not letting it affect you. Even though that’s a hard thing to do, continuing to live out loud is the best you can do!
Like A Girl
“Like A Girl” defies the cliche of doing anything like a girl should be an insult.
She refers to powerful women like Serena Williams, who plays tennis “like a girl” and is actually one of the best players in the sport. So is doing things like a girl reallythat much of an insult?
This girl power song says no!
In an interview with Apple Music, Lizzo explains that the song was missing something.
“When we got to the bridge, I realized there was an important piece missing: What if you identify as female but aren’t gender-assigned that at birth? Or what if you’re male but in touch with your feminine side? What about my gay boys? What about my drag queens? So I decided to say, If you feel like like a girl/Then you real like a girl, and that’s my favorite lyric on the whole album.“
Another feel-good bop where Lizzo preaches on self-love. Not only are the lyrics helpful in doing so, but the music in the song itself make you feel alive.
“I want it to help people love themselves,” she told Apple Music.
