The Truth Hurts singer donned a blue pantsuit with the logo, Yitty, printed from top to bottom. 

Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Jefferson, launched her Yitty brand earlier this year in April, and sells a variety of clothing, from shapewear to dresses. 

The collared, zip-up pantsuit had a deep, V-cut and the singer added a white sports bra underneath, also from her brand.

Her makeup was classic, with a bit of eyeshadow to help make the color of her eyes pop, along with a nude, glossy lipstick. 

Lizzo pulled back her hair into a stylish, sleek ponytail which she could be seen flipping in excitement in the store.

During her small shopping excursion, Lizzo made a swerve down the alcohol aisle, and added a bottle of Patron into her Target cart to properly celebrate her album later on in the day. 

While discussing Special with Zane Lowe, the star talked about the process of creating the album and how she felt now that it was finished. 

‘I’m just proud of how patient I was with myself and with my art, and that I took the time to write the songs that need to come out,’ she explained during the podcast. 

She also mentioned that there were a number of additional songs that did not make it onto her newest album, stating that the overall theme of Special was, ‘love.’

‘I think everything I have done prior to Special was in pursuit of love,’ Lizzo explained. ‘And now Special is almost a celebration of who I am.’
