Lizzo Finally Addresses Rumors About Recording A Duet With Harry Styles

Lizzo is having quite the year — and it's "About Damn Time!" The singer, rapper, and songwriter has kept very busy in 2022, to say the least. 

Earlier this year, she produced and hosted Amazon Prime's "Lizzo's Watch Out For The Big Grrrls," an eight-part reality show following plus-sized dancers competing for a place in her 2022 tour. Shortly after the popular show premiered, the "Truth Hurts" hitmaker released the size-inclusive shapewear brand Yitty in partnership with Fabletics. 

Just days later, she hosted and performed on "Saturday Night Live" and then went on to perform at Coachella. During her set, Lizzo brought out friend Harry Styles as a surprise guest, and the two covered Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" and One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful." 

Lizzo also stunned at the Met Gala, with her trusty flute in hand, and is currently preparing for her fourth studio album, "Special," set for release on July 15, 2022. The three-time Grammy winner has the internet hoping for a possible collaboration with Styles. One Twitter user wrote, "I need a Harry Styles and Lizzo colab [sic] more than i need oxygen." 

On a recent appearance on the Sprout Podcast, Lizzo (kind of) addressed those rumors.

Lizzo's mysterious response in regards to a potential Harry Styles collaboration

Lizzo made a second appearance on the Sprout Podcast to discuss her upcoming album, "Special," which she says has been three years in the making. Entertainment correspondent Tamara Dhia asked not just about her musical process, but also about two male celebrities whom Lizzo has raved about on more than one occasion: Harry Styles and Chris Evans.

Dhia mentioned the online rumors regarding a possible duet with Styles on the album. "That is so funny," Lizzo replied. "The internet gon' internet. That's all imma say about that."

Right after, Dhia mentioned Lizzo's friend and mutual fan, Chris Evans, inquiring if his piano skills, which he showcases on his Instagram Stories (via People), will be featured on the album. "I literally hit him up and was like, 'Play piano on my album,' and he just said, 'Ha," Lizzo recalled, laughing. "It would have been really cool, but unfortunately not this time."
