Ahead of a string of upcoming festival appearances, Minneapolis native Lizzo has returned with a new single. Entitled “Water Me”, the body positive tune was produced by the Grammy-nominated Ricky Reed.
The upbeat jam finds Lizzo celebrating her body and promoting self-care over a ridiculously catchy bassline and rising synths. “I don’t get dehydrated,” she sings. “I moisturize daily/ I am my inspiration.”
“[My inspiration] is knowing everyday is an opportunity to better myself — whether I’m more informed, woke, healthy or loving — I know I’m improving,” she shared on Instagram. “Listen to it and get your inspiration!”
Stream “Water Me” below.
