Lizzo shouts out Drake, Chris Evans while covering Erykah Badu’s ‘Tyrone’

Lizzo took to Miami’s Art Basel over the weekend where she covered Erykah Badu’s “Tyrone.”

On December 5th, Lizzo performed during an American Express concert series called AmEx Unstaged. During the set, she covered Badu’s 1997 Live track, “Tyrone.” Lizzo adds her own twist to the track, referencing Drake and Chris Evans.

Earlier this year, Lizzo joked that she was pregnant with Chris Evans’ child. Noe, she’s riffed on the song’s hook, “I think you’d better call Tyrone.” Instead, she sings, “Maybe I should call Chris Evans/ Maybe Captain America could put another bun up in my oven.”

Lizzo went on to sing, “Maybe I should call Drake?” before turning to her guitarist and laughing. That line is in reference to a lyric from her recent Cardi B collab, “Rumors.” On that song, Lizzo sings, “No, I ain’t fuck Drake Yet.”

On “Rumors,” Lizzo is ready to clap back at the haters. While her 2019 album, Cuz I Love You, brought Lizzo a new found fame, it also brought a lot of intrusion into her personal life. “Rumors” addresses this process, as Lizzo calls out online haters. Throughout the track, she delivers powerful lines like, “If you thought that I was ratchet with my ass hangin’ out / Just wait until the summer when they let me out the house, bitch.”

The accompanying Tanu Muino-directed video sees Lizzo and Cardi B as Greek gods.
