Lizzo is slated to make history in the metaverse.

Logitech revealed that it would be working with “The Truth Hurts” singer again for their second annual Song Breaker Awards set to premiere on Roblox. And, what’s more, it will reportedly be the “first music awards show in the metaverse.”

Lizzo will be joined by special host Bretman Rock, plus Jaden Smith, and more. Those who tune in can look forward to Lizzo performing her new single “Special.”

Statement From Lizzo, According To A Press Release:

“I’m excited to be making my metaverse debut with Logitech and to be performing ‘Special,’ which is a song that means so much to me. As a musician and creator, I love that Logitech Song Breaker Awards show recognizes the unique talent of all creators, and how each of them are making an impact on pop culture and music.”

A Lizzo And Logitech Reunion

Logitech’s reunion with Lizzo follows just a few months after their first joint venture.

As AfroTech previously reported, Lizzo initially premiered “Special” for Logitech’s #DefyLogic campaign.

Similar to the upcoming showcase, the creative campaign affords Lizzo the opportunity to connect with creators making an impact.

“So it was really a great metaphor of me being, like, ‘How do you work this camera,’ and then I get swooped into this world to be free and then dance and then fly into the sky and bear witness to all of these other great creators and connect with them and be in wonder with them,” Lizzo previously said, according to Forbes.
