The show was the last date of Lizzo’s current North American headline tour in support of fourth album ‘Special‘. During the gig, Missy Elliott teamed up with Lizzo for a live airing of ‘Tempo’, from her breakthrough 2019 album ‘Cuz I Love You’, while Cardi B joined her for their standalone collaborative single ‘Rumors’.

Lizzo also took to Instagram to praise Cardi B. ” I am a FAN of Cardi B! I been following her since before love&hiphop… But as much as I fan over her as an artist, who she is as a PERSON is UNMATCHED,” wrote Lizzo. “Cardi B, thank U for always coming thru for me, for standing up for us when you don’t have to. U the peoples champ! I LOVE U.”

Lizzo announced earlier this week that she would be playing another run of North American dates next spring. The singer will be performing in 17 locations that her current tour didn’t visit, including St. Louis, Memphis, Montreal, Baltimore, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Phoenix and San Diego.

A new HBO documentary about her life and rise to fame, Love Lizzo, is set to debut this Thursday (November 24).

It shows footage of the singer during her formative years in which she explains that she didn’t feel confident enough to think one day she could be performing songs on a stage for thousands of people.

In a trailer released last week, she also says that her career “came very close to not being a thing”, as it is later revealed that she felt like giving up several times, and door after door was slammed in her face. “Nobody was trying to sign a fat black girl that rapped and sang and played the flute.”

Last month Lizzo shared details of UK and European dates for 2023. Head here for tickets.
