Lizzo - Cuz I Love You [Album Review]
Blame it on the juice because Ben and Jesse take a venture into a genre not often talked about on the podcast as they dive through Lizzo's 2019 album, Cuz I Love You. You'll hear each track analyzed in it's entirety from the perspective of two massively uncool white guys as well as discussion about Ben's trip to Mexico for a wedding, dancing at weddings and discussion about whether "Purple Rain" by Prince is a slow-dance song or not.
Lizzo is a star and she shines on Cuz I Love You which is packed with infectious pop hits and an authentic personality that cannot be duplicated. Each track tells its own story and has lots of intentionality built in to them. Its a pop album but it bends genres from soul and R&B to blues rock and hip hop.
One of the downsides to this album is it doesn't feature the smash hit "Truth Hurts" despite that song blowing up around the release of this album. When in actuality Truth Hurts was released 2 years before this album but just happened to have a delayed blow up.
