Get your swimsuits out, Lizzo has officially declared her new song “About Damn Time” the “song of the summer.” On Thursday, the singer released her feel-good grooving single alongside the video. Her first track of 2022 will appear on her highly anticipated album, Special, which arrives July 15 via Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic. The LP is available for preorder.
In the Christian Breslauer-directed video, Lizzo attends a Stressed & Sexy support group and she’s asked to share her thoughts with the class. She busts out of the classroom and grooves to the electrifying beats down a hallway paved with a disco-lit floor. Lizzo turns the school into a unified stress-relieving dance party, which includes synchronized swimmers, dancing in neon-lit cubicles, and doing the splits in glittery attire.
