Songfacts®:

  • "Better in Color" is a celebration of love in all its forms. Speaking with Apple Music, Lizzo said the song is a declaration of freedom for people to love whoever they want regardless of what society dictates.

    "I wanted to talk about love, attraction and sex without talking about those boxes in which we put those things, who we feel are allowed to be in love, you know? No matter the gender, sexual orientation, skin color or economic background, because who cares about that s--t. Spice up life, love is better in colors."

  • Barry Tucker from Geelong, Australia The song reminds me of an edgy Beatles song of the late sixties; I was 17 at the time & it could have been on the White Album: what a sound!!
