Lizzo is delivering up a whole lot these days, but what we’re here to talk about today is her serving us up a sequel to “Truth Hurts” with the music video for her latest single off Special, “2 Be Loved (Am I Ready).”

The musician teased the video’s release over the weekend, sharing a clip from the “Truth Hurts” video transitioning into her driving away in “2 Be Loved,” captioning the post, “Are you ready?”
Ummm, yes we are!
The video opens with Lizzo recreating scenes from her 2017 "Truth Hurts" music video in, with a slight twist. As she walks down the aisle, Lizzo second-guesses the idea of marrying herself, and books it out the door.
After leaving herself and a shirtless pastor at the altar, she speeds across the desert highway in a red convertible and stomps through sand hills wearing white platform combat boots.
“Am I ready? (You deserve it now) / ’Cause I want it (that’s what I’m talkin’ about),” she sings in the chorus as she leaves the wedding. “Am I ready? (You gon’ figure it out) / To be loved, to be loved.”
When all hope seems lost, model Tyson Beckford appears on a motorcycle, which tbh nothing could've prepared us for. The two get cozy and Lizzo goes in for the kiss, seemingly “ready” on all accounts. But just as she does, it turns out it was all an illusion, and she was just making out with a tree. By this point Lizzo’s friends arrive to retrieve the runaway bride, after filming the awkward moment of course.
The video then transitions to Lizzo celebrating her freedom and single-hood in a silver outfit, choreographed numbers and a bottle of Patron. “How am I supposed to love somebody else? When I don’t like myself,” she sings on the track, shouting out RuPaul’s famous catchphrase.
An undoubtably unapologetic ode to taking your time and loving yourself, Lizzo’s “2 Be Loved (Am I Ready)” has arrived to remind you to never settle for anything less than kissing a supermodel on a motorcycle in the desert, even if it is just a mirage.
