Lizzo announces LIZZOBANGERS release date, premieres video for "Batches And Cookies"
Totally Gross National Product is excited to announce that we will be releasing the debut solo album from Lizzo on October 15th.
To coincide with this exciting announcement, Lizzo has also premiered the first video from the record's lead single, a playful banger called Batches and Cookies. Watch as Lizzo and her crew provoke hateful protestors, ride around on mopeds, and devour sweets, all to the tune of this late-summer jam.
LIZZOBANGERS is the debut solo album from Minneapolis, MN rapper/singer Lizzo. Having already launched female powerhouse groups GRRRL PRTY and The Chalice to critical acclaim and regional success, as well as recently racking up City Pages 2013 Best Vocalist Award as a solo artist, Lizzo is now stepping out on her own to deliver an album born out of a whirlwind two years of frenzied live shows, dynamic group albums, and countless guest appearances. Packed with explosive rhymes and soulful hooks over Lazerbeak's (from indie rap crew Doomtree) signature bangers and creatively overseen by Gayngs/Polica mastermind Ryan Olson, LIZZOBANGERS is a true breakthrough debut album: an artist’s entire first two decades on the planet bursting at the seems and crammed into an urgent 40 minutes of unrelenting music.
"Lizzo is one of the most captivating musical forces to emerge here in a long time. Between her work with The Chalice, GRRRL PRTY, and now the LIZZOBANGERS album, she’s got the voice, the flow, and the sass to lead the next wave of indie hip hop in the Twin Cities." - Jim McGuinn, Program Director, 89.3 The Current
