LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - JANUARY 26: Lizzo attends the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards at STAPLES Center on January 26, 2020 in Los Angeles, California.

Kiss artist Lizzo almost didn’t pick “About Damn Time.” as a single! What the! I totally love stories like these!

“About Damn Time” may now be a TikTok sensation, and Lizzo’s most recent number one song,  but Lizzo  has just revealed that she almost didn’t pick it to be the lead single off her new album “Special.”

“I’m so bad at picking singles for myself because I think everything I do is incredible, I really do,” Lizzo shared, while appearing on the First We Feast series “Hot Ones.”

She revealed she wasn’t the biggest fan of the song when it was still unfinished but once it was done she changed her tune.

“The ‘I’ve been so down and under pressure, I’m way too fine to be this stressed’ — it’s like, hello!” Lizzo shared. “We needed that right then when I dropped that motherf***r.”

Roy and I jumped on a zoom chat with Lizzo. We talked about her new song “Rumors” featuring Cardi B. She told us she slid into Cardi’s DM’s! That’s how she asked her to be on the song hahaha! A DM slide!

My big surprise for Lizzo came at the end. My brother was really good friends with her manager Kevin growing up together in my hometown in NJ. Kevin was and still is super cool. I showed her a picture of him in high school and her reaction was priceless!

Lizzo also showed us her cool background she uses for her zoom calls. It includes her Grammy’s and a McDonalds Happy Meal!
