Three-time Grammy award-winning, Platinum-selling superstar Lizzo has announced her highly-anticipated return. With anthemic smash hits like the 7x Platinum “Truth Hurts,” the 3x Platinum “Good As Hell,” the 2x Platinum “Juice,” and the Platinum “Tempo (Feat. Missy Elliott)” already under her belt, Lizzo is set for yet another smash with the upcoming “Rumors,” due August 13th via Atlantic Records. CD, cassette and 7-inch vinyl singles, including signed copies, are available via the rapper’s webstore.

Along with her first new music of the year, Lizzo is making her comeback even stronger with a number of festival appearances.

As well as her September 4th appearance at Bonnaroo, Lizzo will also perform for Global Citizen Live on September 25th, Firefly Music Festival on September 26th, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on October 10th, and Outside Lands on October 30th. Lizzo will also make her eagerly-awaited return to her home state of Minnesota for a headline show at Welch, MN’s Treasure Island Amphitheater on September 11th.

Lizzo has become a household name with well over five billion global streams and a Platinum selling debut album to date. Lizzo released her Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic Records debut album Cuz I Love You on April 19, 2019, debuting at No. 6 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and spending 24 consecutive weeks in the chart’s Top 10. “Truth Hurts” also became the longest running No. 1 by a solo female rap artist in history after spending seven weeks atop the charts.
