All the ďRumorsĒ are true.
After much teasing on social media, Lizzo teams up with Cardi B on her first single in over two years. On the empowering bop, which Lizzo wrote in February, the hip-hop queens confront the many rumors surrounding their lives including one involving Drake.
ďNo, I ainít fu**ed Drake yet,Ē raps Lizzo before Cardi addresses her own set of rumors. ďAll the rumors are true, yeah / Fake ass, fake boobs, yeah Ö Cardi ainít poppiní / No, thatís a machine / Nobody listeniní, they buying them streams.Ē
In the epic video, directed by Tanu MuiŮo (ďUp,Ē ďWild SideĒ), the Atlantic Records labelmates transform into Greek goddesses. A pregnant Cardi shows off her baby bump in a golden two-piece while Lizzo stuns in a gold toga, dancing atop Greek columns.
Speaking with Apple Music, Lizzo opened up about the Cardi collaboration. ďThere was no one else for it. There was literally no one else,Ē she said. ďFrom the day the ink dried on her Atlantic contract, I said, ĎPlease get me on a song with Cardi B.í Sheís just funny. I like funny people and she can rap.Ē
Added Cardi, ďItís such a fun vibe. I feel like this is what we needed. We need good vibes that make you wanna jam at the weddings, make you wanna jam at the barbecue.Ē
ďRumorsĒ marks the beginning of a new era for Lizzo and is the first offering from her upcoming album, the follow-up to 2019ís Cuz I Love You. She has been in the studio with producers including Mark Ronson.
