Hours before the single’s release, both Lizzo and Cardi B took to YouTube to speak about “Rumours” via a livestream. Cardi B spoke about her feelings towards the song:
“This is a great record, everybody. It’s such a beautiful great record. And it’s such a fun vibe. I really feel this is what we needed, we like need a good vibes. It just make you wanna jam in the weddings. Make you wanna jam in the barbecue. I love this record.”
The music video for “Rumours” was released on the same day as the single via Lizzo‘s official YouTube channel.
