Lizzo just dropped her newest music for her song “Special” on February 1 — a glorious start to Black History Month, if you ask us — where she turns into a badass superhero with lengthy flowing waves, vibrant purple eye makeup, and very long nails. The pop star gave her TikTok fans a peek of her superhero form about five minutes before dropping the video. In the TikTok, she twirls around in a navy blue onesie (we have a strong feeling that it’s by Yitty) until she becomes her superhuman form for only a few seconds.
Thankfully, we get to see more of Lizzo the superhero in her “Special” music video. She stars as a waitress named Melly (a nod to Lizzo’s legal name, Melissa), who leads a secret double life as a superhero named Lizzo. Unfortunately, in this universe, Melly nor Lizzo are beloved by the general public. Despite that, Lizzo does still have a few fans including a little Black girl with curly hair who adores the superhero — but I won’t spoil too many details because we’re just here for the gorgeous waves and purple ensemble.
Melly in her everyday life wears a messy updo with wispy curtain bangs, but when she becomes Lizzo the superhero, her undone hairstyle turns into deep waves that flow towards her behind. You know we couldn’t forget those baby hairs, swirled and swooped with precision. There was one loop in the center of her forehead that almost looks like the number 6.
