Lizzo shares "Ain't I", the "thesis" of her upcoming second record

Lizzo has shared taster number two of upcoming record Big GRRRL Small World - it's called "Ain't I".

Sam Spiegel, Jack Troth, and BJ Burton have produced the track, which sees Lizzo return to the bolshy, brash, room-filling hip-hop of debut LP Lizzobangers.

"Humanize" was a curveball lead cut - though great in its own way - and "Ain't I" sees Lizzo's elastic flow snap around wit and clever rhymes.

Speaking to The FADER, Lizzo explained the track: "'Ain't I' is the thesis of the album, Sojourner Truth's witness. All of my blackness and my womanhood crammed into 3 minutes and 56 seconds."

Big GRRRL Small World follows 2013 debut Lizzobangers, and is out 11 December via her own BGSW label.

Check "Ain't I" below.
