Ned Botwood - 30th July 2019

Yeehaw! Lizzo continues her charm offensive in this zesty video for Tempo, directed by Andy Hines and co-starring the legendary Missy Elliot.

It’s late at night, and everyone’s heading to Lizzo’s diner. The star and her entourage gather in the parking lot for a gravity defying routine that features, amongst other things, twerking low-riders, burning wheels and flying passengers. But as always, it’s Lizzo that commands the camera.

From the get-go, the video is testament to a star so naturally charismatic, she makes a flute solo look aspirational. And then, to top it all off, Missy Elliot backflips out of a car bonnet - an image you didn’t know you needed until you've see it.

Tempo looks both contemporary and loveably old school, like it could have existed in any era of hip-hop. The video is rendered in bold, broad strokes of red and blue, achieved through harmonious styling, makeup and production design.

Lizzo for President!
