Wildcard (week 29):
Lizzo – Boys

Lizzo is the stage name of 30-year-old American rapper Melissa Jefferson. Sheโ€™s based in Minneapolis, which probably explains the funk in her music. But she doesnโ€™t shy away from injecting a fair amount of soul into her songs either. Good As Hell and Worship (both from her Coconut Oil EP) are great examples. And donโ€™t forget to check YDLM by The Griswolds (โ€˜you donโ€™t love meโ€™), which features Lizzo in a major way. I loved the track so much back then, It ended high in the Carte Blanche Top 2016. Over the years, Lizzo featured on songs by Bastille, Clean Bandit and Prince & 3rdeyegirl as well.

Boys, however, is a new solo outing. And boy, do I like it. The song combines a heavy bassline, tinkling cowbell and groovy guitar licks with Lizzoโ€™s trademark funny verses about all varieties of boys lucky enough to get her attention. An infectious homage to unbridled joy, energy and sexuality, Lizzoโ€™s Boys is this weekโ€™s Carte Blanche Music Wildcard (all of which you can find in the Wildcards 2018 playlist).

For more great new music follow the constantly updated Carte Blanche Music playlist.
