10 Lizzo Lyrics That Have Us Feelin’ Ourselves At Any Given Moment

Lizzo is an ENTIRE mood.

Lizzo

Who's not loving themselves after listening to Lizzo? Sis not only has the juice but has convinced us that we have it too. From holding it down for curvy ladies with no shame or apology, to twerking while playing the flute at any given moment, Lizzo is an entire mood! And we can't get enough!

Lizzo is just what we need to keep the self-love and girl power era alive. She has us feeling ourselves and clapping it up for other ladies as well. She's never a lyric short of making us feel like we can conquer the world, so in honor of that fact, here are 10 Lizzo lyrics that have us feelin' ourselves at any given moment.

1. “I just took a DNA test / Turns out I’m 100% that b*tch.” - “Truth Hurts”

Who doesn't go off when this song comes on? This lyric is not just swaggy and the perfect caption for a dope Instagram selfie or bio. It can boost our confidence and remind us that we're not just bad, we were born to be something amazing. It's in our DNA, sis.

2. “If I’m shinin’, everybody gonna shine (yeah I’m goals) / I was born like this, don’t even gotta try (now you know).” – “Juice”

This is just another reason Lizzo is our BFF in our head. When we succeed, we want the people around us to do well too. There's plenty of room at the top for all of us, and this lyric reminds us of that (in a very cute way).

3. “Jerome, Jerome, take your ass home / And come back when you’re grown.” – “Jerome”

Listen! Anyone who doesn't respect us can be Jerome at this point. This is a no BS type of song and gives some of us that push we need to kick anything toxic in our lives to the curb. Plus, later in the song she says, "Can't let a pretty face distract me from business, And God as my witness, your ugly ass won't either…" What else is there to say at this point?

4. “Come now, come dry your eyes / You know you a star, you can touch the sky / I know that it's hard but you have to try / If you need advice, let me simplify.” – “Good As Hell”

We've all taken an L that has left us super disappointed… whether it was our fault or outside of our control. But this is one of those songs that helps us get past us and remind us that we're the ish. We can do just fine without whatever, or whoever. We can do like Lizzo says and "Just walk your fine ass out the door."

5. “I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever be your side chick.” – “Truth Hurts”

media.giphy.com

This is just another gem in Lizzo's growing catalogue. This chant isn't just for someone we're in a relationship with, but anyone who sees us as second best. It helps us be bold instead of timid, and not care what anyone has to say about it. And if they don't like it, we can move on to the next.

6. “I woke up in this, I woke up in this, in my skin / I can’t wash it away, so you can’t take it from me / My brown skin.” – “My Skin” 

Raise your hands if you've had this one repeat. It's not every day that Lizzo slows it down for us, but this is certainly something special. From learning to love our melanin to embracing the skin and body we're in, this can serve as a love song to ourselves on any given day.

7. “No, I’m not a snack at all / Look baby I’m the whole meal.” – “Juice”

66.media.tumblr.com

While others are out here trying to be and get a snack, Lizzo reminds us it's okay to be the whole package. We don't have to dumb ourselves down or try to inch back for anyone. It's perfectly fine to be nothing less than a woman who has and does it all.

8. “Magic as all hell, we livin', never ever will we give in.” – “Batches & Cookies”

media.giphy.com

From Black Girl Magic to Girl Power in general, we're taking over, and living our best lives on our terms. This lyric reminds us that we're in this together and that we don't have to compete with each other. And on top of that, we're not giving up until we reach our mark.

9. “I’m big-boned with nice curves, look at me, I know I look good.” – “Tempo”

media.giphy.com

This whole song is an entire vibe. It only makes sense considering Lizzo teamed up with Missy Elliott for this one. And of course, Missy's lyrics deserve a shout out. She's never been shy about flaunting her curves and helping us thick ladies embrace unapologetically embrace ours.

10. "I don't need a crown to know that I'm a queen." - "'Scuse Me"

miro.medium.com

Undoubtedly a favorite of ours due to its many quotable moments, her as-a-matter-of-fact mantra in "'Scuse Me" (aka "Excuse me while I feel myself") stands out to us as we acknowledge the queendom that we are, with or without our crowns. Still a queen.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
