Lizzo - Grrrls
Putting the entirely correct lyrical hoo-ha to one side for a moment, I have a considerably more pressing issue with Lizzo's new song 'Grrrls'. It's a bit boring. I'm not saying that everything she does should be some sort of gimmick-laden banger (though she does those better than almost anyone else, facts are facts). But if you're going to put a single out that's effectively just a rudimentary cheerleading chant, it has to have some kind of elevation to lift it above the noise. There's nothing that special here, and it's something we have definitely heard a hundred times before.
