new music: indie pop goddess lizzo unleashes a project full of upbeat jams in larger-than-life ep “coconut oil”

October 12, 2016

Starting off an album with “worship me” as the hook wouldn’t be classified as conventional, but indie pop singer Lizzo is far from being boxed in. Combining the vocal power of a gospel singer with the bright energy of pop and funk, the singer effortlessly radiates a confidence unlike any other with lyrics that are as fun as her visuals and visuals as spunky as her personality. The creativity found in her newest offering, “Coconut Oil EP,” is a continuation of the identity we’ve come to know and love– the free-spirited, quirky, albeit humorous songs shape the shapely musician’s persona. Although rarely outright, the media dubbed Lizzo a “body-positive pop star” because her lyrics are saturated with self-love and appreciation, so we have every reason to worship her after hearing these tunes. Check out a preview of the album below.
