Prepping to drop her highly anticipated new album, Special, Houston-born Lizzo will present a planetarium-esque light show experience, appropriately dubbed Lizzoverse and an exclusive album playback performance on Friday, July 15 that will be livestreamed for fans.

Following the July 15 performance, Lizzosphere — produced by Superfly — kicks off a series of public light shows from July 16 to July 17 at New York City’s landmark Cipriani 25 Broadway.

For those who can’t get enough of the “Good As Hell” star,  Lizzo will debut an exclusive five piece, size-inclusive collection on Monday, July 18 that features playful, bright, graphic hoodies, and tees with familiar Lizzo sayings. A selection of vinyl, CDs, and cassettes will also be available for purchase.
