Lizzo brought the “Juice” to NPR’s Tiny Desk.
“I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time,” said the Houston-raised singer before opening her three-song set with a rousing rendition of “Cuz I Love You,” the title track off her debut album.
Accompanied by her band, the 31-year-old charmed the crowd—NPR’s largest for a Tiny Desk concert—with her big personality and powerful pipes as she continued with her top 10 hit “Truth Hurts,” proving she is “100% that bitch.”
“I’m f**k boy free y’all,” she told the crowd following the performance. “It’s an amazing place to be when you’re so free.”
At one point, a baby started crying, and Lizzo just rolled with the punches. “Even the baby has a testimony. Amen!” she said.
She capped things off with “Juicy” during which she showed off her flute-playing skills before delivering a message of self-love. “If you can love my big black ass at this tiny, tiny little desk, you can love yourself,” she said as the crowd replied, “Hallelujah!”
