Lizzo has shared her first new single in two years, and she’s addressing some rumors in the process.
The singer’s latest release, “Rumors,” sees her team up with none other than fellow Atlantic Records signee Cardi B, marking her first solo music since 2019’s Cuz I Love You. While the Grammy-winning singer is plotting her solo comeback, Cardi has already had a hectic 2021; releasing the chart-topping “Up,” which was soon followed by DJ Khaled’s “Big Paper,” Migos’ “Type Shit,” and Normani’s “Wild Side.”
Lizzo also dropped off the official Tanu Muino-directed video for the track, which you can check out up top.
Revealing Cardi as the featured artist on her new single this month, Lizzo posted a video to Instagram, showing her FaceTime a contact called “’RUMORS’ Feat...” Of course, Cardi picked up the phone, but Lizzo had some jokes for her fans—who may or may not have wanted to see her team up with a former One Direction member.
“Good morning motherfucker,” Lizzo said. “That’s who it’s featuring y’all. Period. It’s Harry Styles.”
In terms of actual rumors this year, Lizzo has usually kept things on the joking side. In fact, she made her own rumor earlier this summer that she’s expecting a baby with Captain America himself, Chris Evans.
“This is something that I’ve been really trying to keep personal and private between me and the father of my child, but since we’re airing out all the rumors today, I’ve been sucking in. We’re gonna have a little America,” Lizzo said in a TikTokk over the theme for Captain America: The First Avenger.
Chris eventually replied, messaging her on Instagram that he “just heard about our little bundle of joy” and that his “mother will be so happy.”
