Channeling all the vibes from Disney’s ‘The Gospel Truth’ song from ‘Hercules’, Lizzo got the fans hooked on her brand new single called ‘Rumors’ that also features a heavily pregnant Cardi B. This is Lizzo’s first single in two years as she took a hiatus after her breakout track ‘Truth Hurts’ in 2019.
The singer had first teased her latest track on Instagram in the second week of August where we saw the crooner interacting with Cardi B via a video call. She later dropped the official cover art of the song that featured a stunning mid-shot of both the gorgeous ladies decked up in ancient Greek attire and make-up. As soon as ‘Rumours’ hit the Internet, social media users erupted with joy as they could not get enough of Lizzo and Cardi B’s muse act in the video.
