Lizzo kicked off what is sure to be an epic 2019 with the release of her acclaimed new single, Juice, available now via all digital music retailers and streaming services. In addition, that same day saw Juice played every hour on the hour on MTV Live and MTVU, along with two screenings on the Viacom Times Square billbJuice has fast proven Lizzo’s most popular track to date, with close to 3x as many first week streams as any of her previous releases. What’s more, Juice was greeted with a range of worldwide radio play and unprecedented rave reviews, with Entertainment Weekly hailing the single as “the latest (and poppiest yet) from the infectiously poised 30-year-old artist, whose ascent in the hip-hop scene has been as rousing to watch as her live performances…Let ‘Juice’ be your introduction to an uplifting up-and-comer. Lizzo continues to release next-level bangers, making us all impatient as we wait for her next album.” British GQ exclaimed “We’re just four days into January and we’ve got the best song of the year, and it just won’t get topped.” And Rolling Stone agreed, declaring, “Four days into the new year, Lizzo released the first great song of 2019. The Minneapolis singer-rapper-flautist specializes in propulsive self-empowerment anthems — feel-good songs about feeling good about yourself — and ‘Juice’ may be her finest yet, a near-perfect retro-funk nugget that would have felt just right on a mirror-balled dance floor in 1982.”
2018 was yet another amazing year for Lizzo, as she was featured on several “Best Of” lists for her hit track Boys, including Time’s “10 Best Songs of 2018,” Pitchfork’s “100 Best Songs of 2018,” and Paste’s “50 Best Songs of 2018” and more.
