Lizzo was feeling "Good as Hell" on Wednesday.
The most successful Twin Cities music export in recent memory hit up daytime TV to perform her new single that appears on the Barbershop: The Next Cut soundtrack.
The real-life Melissa Jefferson, 27, joined the ladies of The Real — think The View, but more diverse and less boring — right in the middle of the show's Barbershop week of programming. The Minneapolis rapper/singer performed her Ricky Reed-produced banger "Good as Hell," her first for Atlantic Records. Check out the retro-vibing, feel-good jam below:
"Good as Hell," easily Lizzo's most Top 40-sounding track yet, peaked at No. 23 on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart, which somehow uses Twitter to rank the buzziness of songs. Technology!
The new Barbershop comes out Friday. Critics think it's pretty good ... as hell. Lizzo has high expectations, telling Beats 1 Radio, "Barbershop is one of the most funny, most classic black American tales. I feel like this one is the best one yet. It's like all-star cast, Nicki Minaj, Eve — they're representing us."
And as she racks up career wins, Lizzo keeps representing the Twin Cities. You can catch her at Soundset on May 29 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds before she jetsets to Europe and begins hitting the summer festival circuit (Afropunk, Bonnaroo, 80/35, more to come).
