We Been Waiting For This One: Lizzo And Missy Elliott Turn It Up In The Music Video For 'Tempo'

Of course, Lizzo's flute Sasha makes a cameo.

Lizzbians, Missy Elliott stans and all-around fans of good music, the wait is over.

On Friday, the singer/rapper and longtime MC dropped the visuals behind their upbeat single "Tempo," and the duo is making us want to throw an epic kickback in a parking lot. 

Dressed in a royal blue, bedazzled two-piece complete with a fuzzy cape, Lizzo and her entourage of dancers make their way from a diner to the parking lot in graceful fashion before twerking to their heart's content in the Andy Hines-directed video. Halfway through the visuals, Missy appears from under the hood of a car and joins in on the fun. 


The pair dropped the single in March, and it appeared on Lizzo's chart-topping LP Cuz I Love You the following month. 

It shouldn't come as a surprise, but the Twitterverse can't get enough of the Detroit native's latest project. 

As it appears, 2019 is setting up to be Lizzo's breakout year. The "Juice" songstress is set to kick off the second North American leg of her Cuz I Love You tour, playing to crowds in Washington, D.C., Atlanta and Charlotte. The 31-year-old also recently appeared in the trailer for the upcoming film Hustlers, starring Jennifer Lopez, Keke Palmer and fellow musician Cardi B. The movie is scheduled to debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
