Lizzo released a new remix of her song “Special,” which features multi-platinum singer SZA. Just a few days after winning the Grammy for Record of the Year for her song “About Damn Time,” Lizzo unveiled a remix of “Special” with SZA. The uplifting song is meaningful to Lizzo and was called SZA’s personal favorite track on Lizzo’s Special album.
The fan-favorite combo gave the highly anticipated single its live debut back in November 2022 during Lizzo’s sold-out L.A. Kia Forum event, which is presently available for streaming on HBO’s “Lizzo: Live In Concert”. The emotional official video clip for “Special,” filmed by award-winning cinematographer Christian Breslauer, displays bright images as well as Lizzo’s natural superhero energy.
The duet, which exudes unabashed positivity, follows Lizzo’s Grammy Award for “Record of the Year” for her worldwide blockbuster hit “About Damn Time,” which peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. The four-time Grammy winner became the first black woman to win “Record of the Year” since Whitney Houston’s win for “I Will Always Love You” in 1994.
Lizzo has announced new North American tour dates for 2023 on her Special Tour. Lizzo will begin her second North American leg on April 21 at the Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, Tennessee, following a string of performances in the United Kingdom and Europe in February and March. The tour will last until the end of June at the Acrisure Arena in Palm Desert, California. In 2023, Latto will still be supporting Lizzo after opening for her in the first leg.
