Lizzo - Water Me

Lizzo is the queen when it comes to self love and positivity and "Water Me" is proof. This is a gorgeous, inspiring video that gives viewers a look into the souls of every day people as they push through. We have all had that ah-ha moment when we're carrying out our daily routine and we need to take a second to remind ourselves why we do what we do and self-motivate. As she sings "I am my inspiration" the visuals focus on a young man drenched in sweat in the middle of training; determination written all over his face. The beautiful people featured in this video are captured in well framed, soft lit shots. The ending is a flawless payoff with a serene moving portrait of everyone viewers followed throughout the video, together in a family home.

Making huge waves in the alternative hip hop scene, Lizzo is now based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. She is founder of groups The Chalice, Grrrl Prty, The Clerb, Ellypseas, and Absynthe. Her last EP release Coconut Oil gained her serious momentum and with this recent single release, it doesn't look like Lizzo is stopping anytime soon.
