Luke GilfordEarlier this month, fans were divided when Justin Timberlake posted a video of himself in the studio with Lizzo. On Instagram, fans said they couldn’t wait to hear what the two were working on, but on Twitter, fans cautioned the acclaimed singer to be careful, referencing JT’s perceived mistreatment of Janet Jackson. Now, Lizzo herself is talking about the collab, and she’s nothing but positive.
“I had fun doing it,” Lizzo told Entertainment Tonight. “Collaborations, for me, is about the energy and the relationship. I mean, it is Justin Timberlake, so I am not trying to be like, ‘Ahh, I didn’t have a good vibe with Justin Timberlake.'”
She added, “We had a lot of fun, we laughed a lot, he’s got great energy. And so do I, and so whatever we do will be made from love and made from fun.”
While Lizzo didn’t indicate when we’d hear the collaboration, she did tease, “He gets lit in the studio. He goes crazy. He was like, ‘Turn up!’ It’s his world, we’re all kind of living in it.”
But the “Juice” star doesn’t need JT’s help to succeed. Her hit “Truth Hurts” has just topped Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, displacing Lil Nas X‘s “Old Town Road” after a record 20 weeks.
