On July 15, 2022, Lizzo released her highly anticipated album, “Special,” which proved to be a huge hit with fans and critics alike. The lead single, “About Damn Time,” soared to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, thanks in part to a viral TikTok dance trend. The track went on to win Record of the Year at the 2023 Grammys held on February 5, cementing Lizzo’s place as one of the most talented and innovative artists of our time.
But it was another song from the album, “Special,” that really caught the attention of music fans post-Grammys. This uplifting track, which Lizzo performed at the awards ceremony, resonated deeply with audiences and quickly became one of her most beloved works.
Just four days after the Grammys, Lizzo surprised fans with a remix of “Special” featuring her friend and fellow Grammy winner, SZA. The remix brought a fresh new dimension to the already beautiful track, as SZA’s airy and lilting vocals added an extra layer of emotion and depth. SZA, who had just released her own critically acclaimed album, “SOS,” in December 2022, had already proven herself to be a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
Fans were thrilled with the new version of “Special,” which quickly went viral on social media and streaming platforms. The remix showcased both Lizzo and SZA’s incredible talents and highlighted the powerful message of the song: that every individual is special and worthy of love and acceptance.
In addition to the hit single and the remix, “Special” is just one of the many standout tracks on Lizzo’s incredible album. With its infectious beats, powerful lyrics, and infectious energy, “Special” is a true testament to Lizzo’s talent and her ability to connect with audiences on a deep and meaningful level.
