Lizzo is an up-and-coming artist, and she definitely brings something new to the table. She has a certain flare she puts into all of her music which really makes it feel different and fresh. All of the songs on this album scream confidence, so "Cuz I Love You" is a great album to listen to when you need a confidence boost. This album is loud and has good vibes that make you feel like you're on top of the world! Although Lizzo is talented, her style fits a specific taste in music. If fast-paced pop/rap aren't your thing, then this album might not be for you. This kind of music is usually not my type, but strangely enough, I found myself dancing along by the second track! The album runs for just over 33 minutes, so it's quite short for an album in my books. All things considered, I give "Cuz I Love You" a 4/5! @peraltiago4ever of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

This major-label debut is easily one of the best projects of 2019 and that’s been shown through the monumental success not only the album has acquired but also Lizzo being the most exciting breakthrough for an artist this year. The big thesis of this album is internalized and externalized confidence—so much so that the music can feel like a means to a greater end. It infuses pop, jazz, blues, funk, soul, r&b, gospel and hip hop all so seamlessly, making a very diverse yet cohesive sound-bed. Lizzo scored her first Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 with the track on the album “Truth Hurts”. On some of my favourite tracks like “Cuz I Love You” and the naming-and-shaming “Jerome,” she bellows from somewhere deep within expressing powerfully of the things she was ashamed of. As well as “Like a Girl” and “Soulmate”, both dauntless, empowered and fueled by her soulful alerting voice looking for self-satisfaction and identification. If you’re looking for that loud and proud summer pop anthem, try Lizzo’s Cuz I Love You which is the same or even better; self-love in the form of soul-pop perfection. 4.5/5. @fullbloom02 of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
