Before Lizzo blew up with her 2019 album Cuz I Love You, she released “Good As Hell” in March 2016 – and since the song has earned a second wind with her newfound stardom, she’s created a second music video for the song as well.
The new visual for Lizzo’s ode to joy and self-love sees her joining the marching band at Southern University for the HBCU’s 2019 homecoming week. With several young girls down on themselves for various reasons – boy troubles, messing up during rehearsal, body image – Lizzo lends her infectious energy to the band, while the girls’ friends help boost them up.
If this video is Lizzo’s last of 2019, it’s a fitting close to a breakout year. She’s certainly feeling “Good As Hell” after her success this year, landing two Billboard Hot 100 hits (“Truth Hurts” at no. 1, and “Good As Hell” in the top ten) and eight nominations for the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year and Record of the Year.
