Lizzo on World Cafe/NPR

Lizzo was on World Cafe last night, she spoke quite fondly of Prince. 2 live performances as well. I'm glad I happened to tune in.

On Prince giving her a chance to shine on the song "BOYTROUBLE":


I was like, "I'm gonna give Prince everything. I'm gonna give him bars, punchlines, harmonies." ... And then when I listened to it, they left everything in, that really validated me because when he first gave us the song, he said: 'Treat this as if it's your song. Like it's not my song. It's your song.'

Prince was the first person to really make me feel validated as an artist when I heard that track. And I got paid! My first big check ever. Thank you, Prince, for my laptop.

She’s one to watch for sure, great energy and introspective, some humor in the mix. The interview was nice, like listening to two friends chatting.

I adore Lizzo! I had no diea Prince gifted her music. I'll have to check out that interview.

Your lips would make a lollipop too happy.

Juice is probably my favourite song this year. Had no idea I'd heard her before on a Prince track!
