While Lizzo‘s “Good as Hell” was originally released in 2016, it didn’t pick up steam until this year. But now it seems the track is here to stay.
The singer, born Melissa Viviane Jefferson, communicates the importance of knowing your self-worth and feeling your best regardless of what others say on her wildly successful recording: “Come now, come dry your eyes/ You know you a star, you can touch the sky/ I know that it’s hard but you have to try/ If you need advice, let me simplify/ If he don’t love you anymore/ Just walk your fine ass out the door.” The lyrics take place over a bright instrumental driven by piano, horns and percussion.
With its newfound success around the world, the song, coming courtesy of Atlantic Records, has acquired a host of remixes, includes those orchestrated by Liam Keegan. The UK-based producer/DJ has used his knowledge acquired during globe-trotting touring to put his own twist on the original “Good as Hell.” The result is a dance floor-oriented take that is equally as infectious as the original.
