Album of the Day
Cuz I Love You (Super Deluxe)
Born Melissa Viviane Jefferson in Detroit on this day in 1988, Lizzo's meteoric rise to stardom – from living out of her car to Time magazine's “Entertainer of the Year” - is nothing short of inspiring. That success was solidified by her major label debut, CUZ I LOVE YOU; the 2019 Atlantic collection spent nearly three months in Billboard's Top 10 and was named one of the year's best by outlets including Entertainment Weekly, GQ and Rolling Stone. This exuberant mix of rap, pop and R&B showcases the singer's charisma and vocal range on 11 originals including “Juice,” “Tempo” (featuring Missy Elliott), “Lingerie” and the title track. Among the extras on the Grammy-nominated Deluxe Edition of CUZ I LOVE YOU is the No.1 hit “Truth Hurts.” Happy Birthday, Lizzo!
