With a beat that harks back to 2000s Missy Elliott, Lizzo holds her own alongside the hip-hop icon, rapping "Slow songs are for skinny hoes, can't move all of this here to one of those, I'm a thick bitch I need tempo, fuck it up to the tempo." Here's hoping we get to see a "Tempo" video soon.

Speaking to Travis Mills on Apple Music's Beats 1 back in February, the artist explained how she sent the track to Missy Elliott and just hoped she'd get a verse back. She then revealed that after about 2 months, she "got a Memoji of Missy like smiling and then she just started rapping, and I was like, 'OMG what the hell' so I had to hook it up to my speaker system."

"Tempo" is the third single from Lizzo's upcoming album Cuz I Love You, out April 19.
