Essentials: “Water Me” – Lizzo

If you’re looking for an empowerment anthem to end your summer with, Lizzo’s new single is your answer. With cover art that’s as carefree as the song itself, “Water Me” is an energetic, danceable pop track that exudes confidence, body positivity, and self-love.

The music video that accompanies the song is just as refreshing. In an interview with Fader, Lizzo describes the concept of the video as celebrating “black beauty and the meaningful freedom of water.” The video does this with alternating shots of a black boy playing with a sprinkler, a black woman taking a bath, and Lizzo dancing in front of a mirror, truly embodying the themes of self-love, self-care, and nourishment.

In standout lyrics during the chorus, Lizzo repeats with conviction over a pulsing beat, “I am my inspiration / I am my inspiration.” If uplifting pop tunes are your jam, let Lizzo inspire you with “Water Me.”
