The "Rumors" are true: a new Lizzo era is coming. It’s been two years since the Grammy-winning singer released new music, and now she plans to drop single "Rumors" on August 13.
On August 1, Lizzo posted cryptically on Instagram, "Don’t even like this post cus you REALLY gon like my post tomorrow." The next day, she released a gorgeous promo image of herself dressed in gold Shiaparelli couture earrings, shushing the camera with her finger to her mouth. "NEW ERA BITCH. 'RUMORS'. 8/13," she captioned the post, announcing her new song of the same title.
Last week, she teased a forthcoming album in response to a fan comment on TikTok. "An album? Absolutely not. I’m not making no fucking album," she said sarcastically, laughing in the video. She turns the camera to reveal producer Mark Ronson, songwriter Phil Lawrence, and a recording studio in the background.
"I’m not in a studio. This isn’t Mark Ronson. This isn’t a whole [sound] board. I’m not hanging out with songwriters like Phil," Lizzo continued. "I haven’t made a fucking album. Where do you get it?" The video on TikTok was captioned, "THE RUMORS ARE FALSE."
