Video: Lizzo – “Tempo” (ft. Missy Elliott)
Lizzo has released a new video for her collaboration with Missy Elliott. In the Andy Hines-directed visuals for “Tempo,” Lizzo leads a pack of dancers in a parking lot party in front of a diner named after the singer. In the middle of the clip, Missy Elliott shows up for her verse and joins Lizzo and her dancers as they groove to the bubbly track. And yes, Lizzo does bring out the flute for just a brief cameo at the end.
“Tempo” is one of the singles released from Lizzo’s latest album Cuz I Love You, following “Juice,” the title track, and “Truth Hurts.” Cuz I Love You is Lizzo’s third album and her major label debut. It was released in April. Lizzo paid tribute to Missy by performing her 1997 classic “Sock It 2 Me” during Missy’s induction into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame earlier this year. Missy was the first female rapper to receive the honor.
Lizzo just wrapped up a North American trek in support of Cuz I Love You, and is set to appear in the upcoming Jennifer Lopez film Hustlers, which is will arrive in theaters this September. Watch the video for “Tempo” below.
