Lizzo puts on a Show to Remember at the O2 Academy

By Ryan Louch

Lizzo certainly proved why she’s one of the most exciting newcomers.

Lizzo performed to a sold out show in Glasgow on Friday, providing one of the most memorable tours of the decade, as the American singer brought the sass, hits and bangers to the city.

The crowd’s love for Lizzo radiated throughout and the singer was extremely overwhelmed before belting out Cuz I Love You, the title song of the album with the same name. Her stage presence is like none other, often having banter with the audience and her crew.

The singer exploded on to the charts with her debut album but her 2017 track Truth Hurts helped to put her on the map and prove that she’s one of the most exciting new acts.

She told the crowd that they were f***ing crazy and she thanked them for making her feel like a mother***ing Scottish queen.

Performing her biggest hits, Good as Hell, Boys and Truth Hurts, Lizzo knows how to put on a show, giving us a church singer realness to match her church podium backdrop.

She didn’t falter once as her powerful vocals blasted around the O2 academy, showing off her vocal skills with songs like Jerome and Lingerie before launching into her more dance heavy tracks which kept the crowd energised through her high energy choreography.

The crowd were stomping, screaming and hyping up Lizzo throughout the night which overwhelmed her and the dancers at the beginning of the night but empowered them as the concert went on, with fans handing her a Scottish flag which Lizzo put over the backdrop, bringing a bit of Scottish flair to the set.

The Glasgow fans wowed Lizzo, who claimed that she’s never played to a crowd quite like the one from Glasgow before, with a mutual love developing throughout the night making it one to remember.

This was an exciting first introduction into the world of Lizzo, in an era of sad bangers and slow burning hip-hop, Lizzo brings the fun back into a bleaker top 40 market.

The singer is on track to have her single Truth Hurts tie with Australian rapper, Iggy Azalea’s number one hit song Fancy for the longest rap track on the charts.

This could make Lizzo a household name and have an exciting career from here on out, and with a sell-out O2 academy crowd backing her from start to finish, tonight definitely proved that the rapper has what it takes to be a superstar.
