I Love You Album Song

The tracks on this album expresses a series of angst-ridden themes based on both the vibe and lyrical content of the songs. Bryan Sammis explained to Coup De Main magazine: "I think that at least in terms of the musical aspect of it, all of us try and get our own emotions out through our instruments, which is not always the easiest thing to do. I think for Jesse Rutherford lyrically, what I really like about him and about us as a band is that a lot of his lyrics aren't necessarily pre-ordained, because he's not trying to force it. A lot of his lyrics are off the top of his head when he first hears the song, because that makes it more natural, it's legitimately what he is thinking about and how he is feeling when he hears that song."[9]

Reception to I Love You was mixed. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 48, based on 8 reviews.[11] Los Angeles Times critic Mikael Wood wrote that despite the band's mastery of the "textural know-how" of contemporary alternative rock, their songs mostly "stretch out into dreary electro-goth atmospherics" and "lack any kind of urgency".[17] AllMusic editor Tim Sendra found that the album's music rarely deviates from its "ponderous nature", ultimately "leaving the listener with an overall experience that is oppressively grey and joyless".[1] Kat Rolle of Drowned in Sound deemed its lyrics to be "inane" and thematically limited to "California and sex", while panning the band's musical approach as unoriginal and calculated for mass appeal.[13]

In a positive review, Jamie Milton of DIY wrote that the Neighbourhood "stick to the remarkably fully formed mantra they arrived on the scene chanting", concluding that I Love You "achieves what few debuts can, by making one hell of an opening statement".[12] Caroline Sullivan of The Guardian was critical of the album's "petulant" lyrics, which she remarked were "obviously aimed at teenagers", but concluded that its "dreamy melancholy and high-shine production" and "traditional songcraft" may nonetheless appeal to a broader audience.[15] Irish Times critic Jim Carroll remarked that the band's hooky pop songs, such as "Sweather Weather" and "Female Robbery", can be "ravishing", but felt that the album is weighed down by occasional "fillers".[16]

The album track list appears to have undertaken some edits prior to being released publicly, as Kat Rolle commented on the "late-stage change up" of "How", which appears as the album's opening track.[13]

Cuz I Love You is the third studio album and major label debut studio album by American singer and rapper Lizzo.

She also previewed a collaboration with Missy Elliott titled "Tempo" that appeared on the album.[4] Along with the lead single "Juice", the album includes the "empowering dance track" "Like a Girl" and a song dedicated to an ex titled "Jerome".[4]

Lizzo announced the album in January 2019, and on February 13, shared the album's cover art, on which she appears nude. Paper called the cover a "stunning glow-up, and a transformation for Lizzo", going on to say that "Fat, and especially fat and Black bodies are rarely treated with such care by photographers, let alone on album covers that will sit on Target and Walmart shelves."[5]

"Cuz I Love You", originally released as a promotional single on February 14, 2019, the song also was given a music video that premiered on YouTube the same date. Later, the song as released as a single to Top 40 radio on January 28, 2020.[13]

Cuz I Love You received widespread acclaim from music critics upon its initial release. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has an average score of 84, based on 24 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim".[18]

Reviewing the album for AllMusic, Heather Phares praised Cuz I Love You as "a triumphant showcase for every part of Lizzo's talent, physicality and sexuality."[19] Jumi Akinfenwa of Clash stated that by "Offering up a mix of pop, hip-hop, R&B and a sprinkling of trap and neo soul for good measure, Lizzo covers all bases and serves the perfect introduction to her world for mainstream audiences."[1] DIY magazine's Rachel Finn gave a positive evaluation of the album, writing that "Lizzo's vibrant personality and humour shining through a set of tracks that switches through elements of funk, pop and R&B with ease."[29]

In an article for NME, reviewer Natty Kasambala described the album as being "as flawlessly genre-spanning as Lizzo herself: pop at its core, but with constant references to her jazz roots and historical love of twerking."[24] Claire Biddles at The Line of Best Fit shared similar sentiments, calling the album "Charming, addictive and seemingly effortless, Cuz I Love You is Lizzo's declaration of superstardom."[30] Slant Magazine's Zachary Hoskins concluded that "Lizzo's talent has always been evident, but this album's material, her strongest to date, allows her put it on full display. By the languorous, seductive neo-soul of closing track "Lingerie", her enthusiasm is as contagious as it is well-earned."[31]

Some reviewers were more reserved in their assessments of the album. In a review for The Guardian, Alexis Petridis felt that "Lizzo has something to say, and a smart way of saying it ... but the potency of what's here would seem more potent still if it had been allowed a little room to breathe ... Instead, Cuz I Love You keeps its foot pressed down hard on the accelerator for half an hour in an attempt to ram-raid the charts."[22] Rawiya Kameir was also critical in the review for Pitchfork, claiming that "Despite her obvious skill and charisma, some of the album's 11 songs are burdened with overwrought production, awkward turns of phrase, and ham-handed rapping."[26]

Cuz I Love You debuted at number six on the Billboard 200 with 41,000 album-equivalent units, of which 24,000 were pure album sales. It was Lizzo's first album to chart on the Billboard 200.[50] It then repeaked at number six on the charting week ending on June 27, 2019. It has stayed in the top 10 for 15 weeks after its release. The album peaked number 4 in its 19th week on the chart dated September 7, 2019.[51][52]

I Love You is the twenty-fourth studio album by American singer Diana Ross. It was released in Europe[3] by Parlophone Records' Angel label in late 2006 and by Manhattan Records in the United States in 2007. It was Ross's first studio album of newly-recorded material since Every Day Is a New Day (1999). The album features a number of classic love songs such as Marvin Gaye's "I Want You" (co-written by Ross's brother Arthur), Burt Bacharach's "The Look of Love" and Queen's "Crazy Little Thing Called Love". The only new original song on the album is the title track "I Love You (That's All That Really Matters)" .

Her highest-charting album in over 20 years in the US, it debuted at number 32 on the Billboard 200 and peaked at number 16 on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. I Love You also charted in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Critical reception toward the album was generally mixed. A special edition format was also released including a DVD featuring behind the scenes footage of the album's production. In support of the album, Ross embarked on the I Love You Tour which began in April 2007 in the United States and eventually visited Europe and Canada.

Allmusic editor Jeff Tamarkin wrote that "in what might be the least inspired album of her career, iconic diva Diana Ross sleepwalks through a mishmash of seemingly randomly chosen love songs, all covers save for one new composition, adding nothing to them and forcing one to wonder just why she bothered." He found that Ross "puts little emotion or enthusiasm into her recitations here, and seems to have little familiarity with, or understanding of, the songs she and producers Peter Asher and Steve Tyrell have chosen for the album. Her vocals are largely nondescript and at times barely hint at the qualities that made her such a distinctive force for decades, and the arrangements and production are whitewashed and lacking in originality."[2]

First released internationally, I Love You debuted and peaked at number 60 on the UK Albums Chart.[4] In North America, the album was released on January 16, 2007. It debuted on the US Billboard 200 as the week's Hot Shot Debut, reaching number 32, with first-weeks sales of 21,222 copies.[5] This marked Ross' highest-charting album since Swept Away peaked at number 26 in late 1984.[6] Other charts I Love You appeared on include the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums and the Top Internet Albums, reaching number 16 and number 32, respectively.[6] According to Soundscan, as of 2016, the album has sold around 100,000 copies in the United States.[7]
