Lizzo, SZA Join Forces On New ‘Special’ Remix
Lizzo and SZA recently teamed up for a remix for “Special,” the title track of Lizzo’s latest album.
The remix features a new opening verse from SZA: “Woke up this morning to somebody judging me / No surprise they judging me / Don’t know who I’m ‘sposed to be / I’m just actin’ up, I’m brash as f— / Never saying sorry / Found out in the end that I can only do it for me.”
SZA then joins Lizzo in the chorus for lovely harmonies.
Back in November 2022, Lizzo had hinted about a collab with SZA. “Something Special coming your way soon… ?? @sza,” she tweeted then and shared a visual of her and SZA, with a snippet of the “Special” remix playing over the video.
The duo performed the track onstage in Lizzo’s Live in Concert HBO Max special in November 2022 at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, Calif.
“My actual sister. I could cry thinking about you right now. Nothing could make special more special than you @sza [red heart emoji],” Lizzo captioned a clip from the performance.
“A gift to the world,” SZA tells her Grammy-winning bestie onstage. “Thanks so much for even being my friend. I love you. You’re special.”
