Tempo (feat Missy Elliott)

WEA International
Lizzo's new album 'Juice' is all set to drop, her first in four years, and I hope it features more tracks as hot and addictive as 'Tempo'. Yes it was the Missy cameo that reeled me in, but it was the Prince guitar that blazes the track into your day, the fantastically minimal bass-heavy production that kept me enthralled and the throwaway sharp lines that kept me rewinding. Rap music needs more people like Lizzo, not just as a gigantic fuck-you to the regressive sexism of the music biz, but because the music is glorious. In a year that's already given us stunning full-length albums from Little Simz and IAMDDB, there's no excuse for any hip-hop listener to be excluding women's voices from their ongoing listening. Play loud.
