The year also saw a stunning range of media attention, spanning cover appearances on Galore and Teen Vogue’s Pass The Mic Music Issue to feature interviews including Rolling Stone, the New York Times, V, Glamour, and Allure, which named Lizzo among its Beauty Disruptors: 12 People Changing the Beauty Industry for the Better. Lizzo was also featured on several Best Of lists for her hit track “Boys” including Time’s 10 Best Songs of 2018, Pitchfork’s 100 Best Songs of 2018, and Paste’s 50 Best Songs of 2018 and more. “Fitness” was also included in Paper Magazine’s Top 100 Songs of 2018.

“Coconut Oil”, Lizzo’s hugely acclaimed Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic Records debut EP, was released in October 2016 to unanimous critical acclaim and popular success. “Coconut Oil” is highlighted by the hit single, “Good As Hell” also featured on 2016’s BARBERSHOP: THE NEXT CUT (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK). Rolling Stone singled out the track in its Best Pop Albums of 2016 So Far, explaining that “Despite these albums, pop still remains a genre for singles. Lizzo’s boisterous ‘Good As Hell’ produced by omnipresent 2016 producer Ricky ‘Wallpaper’ Reed is a straight-no-chaser shot of self-confidence with a call-and-response chorus”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
