Lizzo Says Chris Evans And Drake ‘Better Call Her’ In ‘Unstaged’ Cover Of Erykah Badu’s ‘Tyrone’

The ‘Truth Hurts’ award-winning artist took the stage during Art Basel.

The incomparable Lizzo held Art Basel attendees in the palm of her award-winning hands Saturday during a personal cover of Erykah Badu’s classic, “Tyrone.”

Surprising fans in attendance, according to, Lizzo’s rendition of the 1997 song, included on Badu’s Live album, came toward the end of her 70-minute set, which was part of American Express’ UNSTAGED concert series for Amex card members.

Past performers have included SZA, Alicia Keys, and Kendrick Lamar.

In Badu’s version, the melodious mystic sang that her soon-to-be ex-bae “better call Tyrone,” where Lizzo switched it up for a more revealing look at what she’d like to happen in her DMs.

“Maybe I should call Chris Evans,” she sang, playing off a popular fan campaign for the singer to date the actor. “Maybe Captain America could put another bun up in my oven,” Lizzo continued, jokingly referencing rumors that she started, by the way, stating that she was pregnant with the actor’s baby.

Lizzo has covered “Tyrone” before, most recently at her September “comeback” concert in her home state of Minnesota. But this version happily played to cuffing season vibes, as Evans wasn’t the only certified lover boy on her hit list.

“Or maybe I should call Drake?” she sang next, before exploring a NSFW ad-lib about what exactly she would ask the rapper to do.

The Miami show, in an already jam-packed Art Basel week, marked only the second time the “Truth Hurts” singer-songwriter performed a full show since the pandemic began. Her excitement was contagious, sharing with the crowd, “This has been one of the craziest years I’ve ever witnessed, and to be present in my body right now and to be able to do this for you right now is a blessing and I’m so grateful,” before launching into a cover of Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman.”

500 Amex members were invited to the exclusive Art Basel event but was also streamed for fans via LIVENow across the U.S. The setlist found everyone rocking out to some of the singer’s most popular hits like “Good As Hell,” “Cuz I Love You,” and fan favorites like “Boys” and “Water Me.”

Appropriately, she opened the show with her Cardi B collaboration, “Rumors,” which, while the Bronx baddie was in Miami, was pre-recorded and presented during the UNSTAGED show.
