The Oscar-winning song gets a powerful new version
The track appeared on the soundtrack for the 2018 remake of A Star Is Born and was named Best Original Song at the 2019 movie awards ceremony. The song was written by Gaga, Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt, and Anthony Rossomando.
During an appearance on SiriusXM’s Hits 1, Lizzo delivered an acoustic version of the hit song, handling both Cooper and Gaga’s vocals herself. You can watch her version of ‘Shallow’ below now.
In February, the Minneapolis rapper covered another track of Ronson’s when she tackled his collaboration with Miley Cyrus, ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’.
Lizzo is due to release her third album ‘Cuz I Love You’ on April 19. The record will be her first release on a major label and follows 2013’s ‘Lizzobangers’ and 2015’s ‘Big Grrrl Small World’.
‘Cuz I Love You’ will feature the recent single ‘Tempo’, which saw the star team up with Missy Elliott. “I was like, ‘I hope she blesses me with a verse,’” Lizzo told Beats 1 of when she sent the iconic rapper the completed instrumental. “Like, you never know, you send it to your idols, you never know if they gonna send it back.”
Meanwhile, on the BRIT Awards red carpet earlier this year, Lizzo confirmed to NME that she will play this year’s Glastonbury festival. Discussing her plans for 2019, she said: “I just have a shit tonne of shows and festivals. I’m coming back to London and Manchester. I’m doing Lovebox Festival and Glastonbury but I don’t think that’s announced so, whatever – you just got the scoop, bitch.”
She continued: “I’m going to be everywhere.” Her live shows, which she describes as “church with a twerk” have “sold out already so bring it on.”
