Days after releasing her Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic Records debut album ‘CUZ I LOVE YOU,’ Lizzo has announced her fall North American tour, “Cuz I Love You Too.”
‘CUZ I LOVE YOU’ arrived to critical acclaim on Friday, April 19th with Variety declaring, “Her debut’s sexy, smart, scuffed-up R&B establishes Lizzo as an immediate star.” Esquire affirmed, “ ’You’ reveals another bullet point on her already spectacular resume: Lizzo can sing. Boy, can she sing. Her rich, raw vocal is on display all across the LP, but it’s especially striking on affecting ballads like the blow-your-hair-back title track, produced by X Ambassadors, or the throbbing “Jerome,” which sees her pleading with a suitor who leaves her wanting to come back “when you’re grown.” (“Poor little baby,” she chides. “Who told you that you stood a chance with this royalty?”)”
Lizzo has marked the arrival of CUZ I LOVE YOU with a number of high profile TV appearances, including performances on the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show, NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and TODAY, and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and HBO’s 2 Dope Queens, as well as visits to Comedy Centrals The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Upcoming appearances include E! News’ Busy Tonight, set for April 22nd.
In addition, Lizzo has been featured in a remarkable range of worldwide media outlets and national publications, spanning Billboard, TIME, Entertainment Weekly and Playboy to the covers of New York Magazine’s Spring Fashion Issue, Allure, and more.
Yesterday, Lizzo wrapped up an epic 2-weekend run at Indio, CA’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival earning her further acclaim. “Lizzo has quickly cemented herself as one of 2019’s preeminent pop figures,” wrote Consequence of Sound. “(Her) set only spanned 12 songs, but every track got the crowd grooving more than the last. The show attracted the most tightly packed audience in the Mojave tent across the whole weekend… Lizzo’s energy went unmatched, and, like she proclaimed at the beginning of her set, it’s likely that she will be headlining festivals in the years to come — especially if she keeps up her tempo.”
For as long as she can remember, Ally Brooke has been on a path to self-discovery. And now, with the singer having endured her share of detours and obstacles and unexpected challenges along the way, she’s finally tapped into her most honest and sincere spirit. “It’s an answered prayer,” says the preternaturally talented pop star who after breaking out as a member of the multi-platinum pop group, Fifth Harmony, signed with Atlantic Records in 2018 and is now preparing to release her solo debut album. Following years ceding her individual creative spirit to a group’s collective mission, Ally says she’s nothing short of ecstatic to at last paint her own portrait: a rich tapestry decorated with history and culture, passion and commitment. “I get to finally bewho I am and fulfill that part of me that was so lost for a while,” she says with trademark blunt honesty. “People never really got to see to the true me. Now just being able to have my own freedom of being an artist is the most incredible feeling in the world.”
Further adding to Ally’s excitement is the knowledge that she’s finally poised to emerge front-and-center and deliver the full-scale monumental live show she’s long admired. “I really gravitate towards people who entertain,” she says citing some of the era’s best performers including Timberlake, Mars,and Lopez. “They have such high-energy shows and they are so captivating. I always was drawn to that even as a young girl. Just the magic of being able to really give someone a beautiful, engaging memorable time. “I’m am entertainer,” she adds without hesitation when asked what the future holds for her. “I’m just someone who loves music and performing and loves the character that a record can bring.” Having dedicated her life to music and sacrificed so much to get to this point, Ally is euphoric about what lies ahead. “I’m so excited and ready to work,” the singer says with pride.
