Lizzo On The Positive Effects Of Singing ‘Good As Hell’
Lizzo has spoken about the positive effect that her song Good As Hell has had on her mental health.
In an interview with ET Canada, the singer opened up about the importance of the hit single to her and suggested that her latest single, About Damn Time, is her attempt to recreate the effect.
“I wanted to write a song that when I’m on stage and performing, I feel better immediately in that moment and I did that with Good As Hell… Every time I’m on stage and it doesn’t matter what I went through that day, when I sing Good As Hell, I get emotional, I get happy, and I’m like, ‘I need a song like that again’. So when I’m dealing with all the anxieties of the world… I can sing this song and be present for a moment and recharge myself to take on the world.”
Lizzo also revealed that she cut some of the songs from her new album Special because she had an epiphany about its vibe when she created About Damn Time.
“I took off a lot of songs that didn’t match this new vibe I was in, especially after writing About Damn Time. I wrote this like two months ago and I think I had an epiphany like, ‘Oh I only want songs that are love frequency’, like, very about love, and also bangers. I wanted to make Lizzobangers (name of debut album) again,” she explained.
About Damn Time is already shaping up to be a huge hit for Lizzo. The song has just cracked Spotify’s global top 10 (the first time Lizzo has managed that feat), and she has also claimed the No. 1 spot on TikTok and US iTunes. Lizzo celebrated in boisterous fashion, posting on Instagram, “ABOUT DAMN TIME IS MY HIGHEST GLOBAL @spotify SONG *EVER*. REALLY SPEAKING THE SONG OF THE SUMMER INTO EXISTENCE.”
Special will be released in July.
