A feel-good anthem about self-love and acceptance.

Lizzo is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry, known for her powerhouse vocals and body-positive anthems. One such song is “Special,” which appears on her 2019 album “Cuz I Love You.” With its uplifting message and infectious beat, “Special” quickly became a fan favorite and has since become a staple in Lizzo’s live performances.

At its core, “Special” is a song about self-love and self-care. In the opening lines, Lizzo sings, “I’m tryna drink my water and my skin ain’t lookin’ right / I’m tryna mind my business, and just find my Mr. Right.” These lyrics reflect the pressure that many women face to look a certain way and find love, even at the expense of their own well-being. However, as the chorus kicks in, Lizzo reminds listeners that they are all “special” and deserving of love and respect, regardless of their appearance or relationship status.

The song’s music video, directed by Quinn Wilson, features Lizzo and a group of friends taking part in a self-care day complete with face masks, manicures, and dancing. The video emphasizes the importance of taking time to care for oneself and promotes the idea that self-love is a vital aspect of overall health and happiness.

“Special” showcases Lizzo’s ability to empower and uplift her fans through her music, making her a true icon of body positivity and self-love. With its catchy beat and powerful message, it’s no wonder that “Special” has become one of Lizzo’s most beloved songs.
