Show All
  • Pitchfork

    The shiny soul-pop of Lizzo’s major label debut is something of a thesis on internalized and externalized confidence—so much so that the music can feel like a means to a greater end.

  • Rolling Stone

    The singer’s breakthrough debut is full of twerk-core jams, juicy old-school soul weepers, flute hero flexing and self-love anthems.

  • Slaughterhouse Magazine

    Lizzo’s songwriting is clever, funny, and deeply personal. Her sound on Cuz I Love You is reminiscent of the great voices and lyricists who came before her, but she is certainly not a replica.

  • Exclaim

    Maybe Cuz I Love You isn't what Aretha Franklin would sound like, had she made a rap album, but Lizzo created a beautiful sonic journey through different eras of music, and for that, it deserves a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

  • Blue Devil Hub

    There is not a dull moment on the album, as the tracks are mainly up-tempo and the rapping is equally fast-paced. Her lyrics are also witty and unpredictable and she adds humor and pop culture references in almost every song.

    If anybody can figure out how to do that with grace, it's Lizzo, but it's a damn high bar she's set for herself. For all the confidence she radiates, she's got some growing up to do. And if part of maturing means elevating her music to her message, so much the better.

    Given the quality of songs on here and the fact this is her third album, hopefully this will be enough for her to break through to a wider audience as she has the voice, she has the songwriting formula, and she has the personality that is very endearing in an age of pop that at times can appear distant and stale.

    Cuz I Love You is overbearingly brilliant. Its production is polished and put-together, but there is a sense that Lizzo will stop at nothing until her message of self-love well and truly sinks in. While this sometimes risks feeling overwhelming, the multi-talented musician pulls it off brilliantly, like the diva she is.

    It is cosmic in impact but physical in effect because Lizzo has aimed for universality. EVERYBODY NEEDS to feel better about themselves, and Lizzo has the vocal range and stylistic versatility to prove that self-empowerment also means self-expansion.
