On the heels of the chanteuse’s announcement, Black queen and power songstress Lizzo has announced that she is ready to have her music inducted into the Christmas canon. 

In a post to her Twitter page earlier this week, the “Truth Hurts” singer informed fans that she has a Christmas Song.

In celebration of the Christmas season, Lizzo shared with friends on Twitter that she intact has a Christmas song by writing “I HAVE A CHRISTMAS SONG.”

Sí mi gente, it turns out the maker of some of the best lyrics gone viral this year has an actual honest-to-god Christmas album. The sad news is that your sorry ears are kind of late to the game. It’s true, the singer released a delightful song for the cuffing-season anthem, a song called “Never Felt Like Christmas,” way back in 2015. The festive and romantic song contains sees Lizzo sing about “Sugar plums and candy canes, they did nothing for me / You could find me home alone and ordering Chinese / But now I save that old fruit cake ’cause there’s enough for two / It never felt like Christmas ’til I spent it with you.” 

PLEASE SANTA let Lizzo release a 2019 Part II of the song because we need the holiday beats!

The holiday bop might not be particularly new, but it is new to fans who have only recently come to adore the singer this year. 

In her 2015 song, Lizzo shares a song that speaks to the charming and exhausting aspects of the Christmas season including “carolers singing off-key” and “50-something street.”

Speaking about the song, Lizzo shared with fans on her Youtube Channel her reason for originally writing the holiday beat.

“I’ve always loved Christmas music. Working in retail deferred my love for it, but time heals all wounds. Ricky Reed and I really enjoyed ourselves in the studio trying to reimagine the modern-day Christmas love story. Not everybody’s in the Christmas spirit these days, but love can give even the biggest Scrooge a little holiday cheer.” the singer wrote. ” 

Fans of Lizzo are already rooting for her song to be a classic, just like a certain Christmas Queen who came before her. 

“Best Christmas pop song in a long time! Brilliant! I’m fa-la-la-la-ling in love with this song!” one user wrote in the comments section of her song’s post. 

Still waiting for this gem to be on spotify. Also waiting for Lizzo to come to Montreal ????,” Shadey.xo said in another comment. 

Another sweet post commented I like this song. But I don’t know the lyrics. Please tell me the lyrics for studying English. Thank you..” Which TBH listening to Lizzo to learn English is the sweetest thing.

There’s no doubt, Lizzo has a knack for turning words into a number one hit.

Not long before Lizzo took a DNA test that revealed she was in fact, 100 percent that b*tch, sis left her heartbroken like the rest of us mortals. Turns out that shitty ex-boyfriends happen even to the best of us. 

In case you missed it, Lizzo got personal with Billboard and revealed that the song actually came from a bad breakup. The singer-rapper-flutist disclosed that “Truth Hurts” —an anthem against good-for-nothing men—came from heartbreak and tears; “That’s how hit records are made. They’re made from the heart. They’re made from tears. They’re made from fears. And they’re made from happy endings.”

Lizzo went into the studio after receiving an upsetting voicemail and didn’t even want to be there.

The singer told Billboard that when she went into the studio to record, two years ago, she had just been dumped…over the phone, and didn’t even want to be there. “I was so upset and depressed and sad,” she remembers. The singer went on to retell how she had just received a voicemail from a guy telling her not to call him anymore because he was getting back together with his ex. Gives more meaning to the words “Don’t text me, tell it straight to my face,” right?

As Lizzo was telling producer Ricky Reed all about the Minnesota Vikings player in her DMs and having to wash her ex out of her hair, she noticed as she was talking, that Reed was writing. When she asked what he was doing, he replied, “I hope you know you just wrote a song.” Everything fell into place from there.

Billboard Listed The Top 50 Latin Music Songs Of All Time And Some People Have Questions

Latin music is something we all grew up with. Our parents raised us on the voices of Celia Cruz and Vicente Fernandez. We cleaned the house and entertained ourselves on road trips to these artists and they are ingrained in our DNA. Billboard recently released a list of the 50 best Latin music songs of all time and some are undoubtedly iconic and others just aren’t Latin music.

Billboard dropped their list for the 50 best Latin music songs of all time and some of them are truly classics.

Amor Prohibido” by Selena, “Guantanamera” by Celia Cruz, “El Rey” by Vicente Fernandez, and “El dia que me quieras” by Luis Miguel are just a few of the songs on the list that deserve all the praise. They are songs that transport us to our childhoods and cherished family memories.

The list also includes some newer songs that have rocked out adult worlds. “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi, “Mi Gente” by J Balvin, “El Farsante” by Ozuna, and “Tusa” by Karol G and Nicki Minaj all made the list. Not only do these songs speak to the Latino audience, they have been able to go mainstream sharing our musical culture with the world. That’s something to admire and respect because it gives our community representation like never before.

The list has proven to be just want some people have been asking for.

Tbh, this would make a pretty amazing road trip playlist if you need to pass the time. Nothing like a mix of Latin music songs playing along to give you a big, inclusive sabor of Latin America through music. A little be of Mexico and a little bit of Puerto Rico mixed in with a little bit of Colombia is pure joy and magic.

However, a lot of people are questioning the list’s inclusion of Spanish artists.

The list has various artists who are not Latino, but Spanish. There seems to be an unspoken rule in the music industry that music in Spanish is automatically Latin music. Fans have long been arguing against the industry’s blanket label of Spanish-language music automatically being considered Latin music.

Rosalía, who has arguably become the face of the debate, is listed as having one of the best Latin music songs of all time.

While Rosalía does make some good music, there is a real push to make sure the artists of Latin American roots are uplifted in Latin music. There is nothing wrong with including Rosalía in your Spanish-language playlists but Latin music fans want the distinction made that some artists aren’t Latino.

You can check out the rest of the Billboard list here.

Cardi B Shared on Instagram The Heartfelt Gift That Lizzo Sent Her After News of Her Divorce Leaked

Cardi B may be newly single, but that doesn’t mean the chart-topping female MC isn’t living her best life.

On Tuesday, Cardi took to Instagram to show off a gorgeous bouquet of flowers that was sent to her by none other than Lizzo. “Flowers for a flower!” the note read. “Congrats on all your success this summer–know you are loved and are love. P.S – I’m sending you something good this week. Love, Lizzo!”

Cardi couldn’t help but gush over her fellow rapper and Hustlers co-star.

“Isn’t Lizzo like the nicest person in the world?” she asked her Instagram followers. “Look what she sent me! She is just a beautiful-ass person, I just love her so much. These are so pretty!”

Cardi, for her part, has long-expressed her admiration for Lizzo. Back in August, Cardi admitted that she had originally wanted Lizzo to appear in her WAP music video. 

In an interview with HOT 97, Cardi revealed that she “had a whole vision” about how Lizzo would appear in her now-legendary music video. Unfortunately, Lizzo was out of town and wasn’t able to make the shoot. 

Lizzo’s gift as well as the note was ostensibly in response to the recent bombshell news that Cardi B is divorcing her husband, Offset.

The news, which also broke on Tuesday, took fans by surprise. According to the paperwork which was filed at an Atlanta courthouse, the marriage is “irretrievably broken” with “no prospects for a reconciliation.” 

Of course, this wasn’t the first time Cardi’s fans have heard about her martial drama. Cardi and Offset’s three-year marriage had long been plagued by reports of infidelity as well as public break-ups and reconciliations.

In the past, Cardi has always spoken publicly about her decision to continue to take Offset back after his many cheating scandals. 

“When me and my husband got into our issues—you know, he cheated and everything—and I decided to stay with him and work together with him, a lot of people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me,” Cardi explained in a tell-all interview with Vogue.

“But it’s real-life shit,” she continued. “If you love somebody and you stop being with them…you’re not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation. People that be in marriages for years, when they say till death do us part…that’s including everything.”

As of yet, neither Cardi nor Offset have publicly commented on the news of their divorce. The most recent post Offset has put on Instagram has been a picture of him leaning against a car looking disaffected. The caption reads: “Grind don’t stop”. The comments are, noticeably, turned off.
