Lizzo transforms into a superhero in the music video for ‘Special’

Lizzo transforms into her superhero alter ego in the new music video for her latest single “Special.”

The visual, directed by Christian Breslauer, depicts Lizzo saving a little girl from being hit by a car while the scene cuts to the singer’s transformation into a superhero sporting a metallic purple suit and cape. Lizzo continuing to live a double life, waitressing by day and fighting crime by night.  Lizzo wrote about the video on social media: “the music video starts off as showing the superhero, the Black woman as superhero, and it’s like, America loves a Black woman as superhero, but absolutely hates her as a human being. The glorious superhero, you see her doing the regular life-saving, press, everyone loves her, and then she takes off her costume, it’s a Black woman and just showing the juxtaposition of how she gets treated in the real world.”

“Special” is the title track from Lizzo’s fourth studio album, Special.  Take a look at the video for “Special” – here.
