Missy Elliott and Lizzo definitely gave the girls something to twerk to. Both artists use their verses to uplift anyone, especially the thick girls.
“Slow songs, they for skinny hoes. Can’t move all of this here to one of those. I’m a thick bitch I need tempo” repeats Lizzo on the hypnotic hook. Lizzo is not one to shy away from showing her body and embracing her size and skin tone. Lizzo’s recent Playboy spread highlights her ability to exist freely, both physically and artistically.
