Lizzo has been garnering herself a pretty strong fanbase in the states, but with her recent signing to Virgin/EMI she'll be taking that international when her album Lizzobangers drops. We've already heard two hard-hitting tracks from it and now the third is streaming below, the ferocious 'Luv It' and it's safe to say that we are, in fact, loving it.

While she's closely intertwined with the Minneapolis, Minnesota hip-hop scene, 'Luv It' is more of an ode to her hometown of Houston, Texas. She explained to Time that “‘Luv it’ is an open book to my experience as a Houstonian,” adding “I wrote it to pay homage to my earliest rap memories of free styling in the cafeteria, banging on desks. The second verse is truly telling of that — Ryan accepted my first take (which is partial freestyle) and used it in the final master. It’s a raw depiction of my rap DNA.”
