Lizzo is just as outspoken as ever on her wonderfully raunchy new track, “Boys,” which was released Friday. There’s also a video counterpart, directed and shot by Quinn Wilson and Andy Madeleine—you can watch Lizzo and her squad frolic through Boyville below.
Why pick one summer crush when you can marvel at them all? That’s the question at stake on “Boys,” which finds Lizzo grasping and declaring her sexuality via a series of delicious male typecasts. She’s not picky, either, singing, “I like big boys, itty bitty boys / Mississippi boys, inner city boys.” An overtly groovy bass line flavored with high-pitched electric guitar carries the song through. A dance-y boasting of sexuality, “Boys” is a flirty summer jam.
The “Good As Hell” songmaker also just finished up a run on Haim’s Sister Sister Sister tour. Prior to “Boys,” Lizzo released a smattering of other fiery tracks in recent months, including “Fitness,” “Truth Hurts” and “Water Me.” Her most recent full-length album was 2015’s Big Grrrl Small World, but she’s been steadily cranking out singles ever since.
Again, you can watch/listen to “Boys” below. Further down, you can jam out to Lizzo’s 2014 Daytrotter Session.
