"Cardi B is the ultimate."
Lizzo believes that Cardi B has "changed the game forever" for women artists.

The 33-year-old singer and the 28-year-old rapper joined forces to record the new song "Rumors" together and Lizzo enjoyed the experience of working together on the single.

When asked by Zane Lowe in an interview with Apple Music what she loves about the rapper, Lizzo replied: "Cardi B is the ultimate. For me, he always did it right. "

"Everything he said, every way he reacted. It is because she was faithful to herself all the time. He is a pioneer. You can not deny her ability. "She is a superstar," he continued.

"The game has changed forever for many of us, for many women. I do not think she even realizes that she is doing it, because she is trying to be successful. "I am trying to get this money. I want to live a happy life ". She just follows her heart. "This is what I love about her," he said of the hip-hop star.

Lizzo - Cardi B
Lizzo was determined to work with Cardi B as soon as the opportunity arose.

"There was no one else for this song. There was literally no one else. From the day the ink dried on her contract with Atlantic, I said, "Please put me on a song with Cardi B." They're just funny. I like funny people and she can rap. Do you understand what I'm saying; "Seriously, to rap," he explained.

Lizzo also believes that the partnership with Cardi B makes her "cooler".

"I was a nerd. Everyone in the country who sees this music video will see that I am in a music video with Cardi B. I was walking down the aisle with sweaty hair, reading fantasy novels. "A nerd, a plant," he said.

"And I cried because I thought it was a moment when the circle closed. I made it. "I always wanted to be cool," Lizzo added.
