After the title track from her upcoming new album had been leaked earlier in the day, Lily Allen has gone ahead and premiered the music video for it
“Sheezus” marks the fourth video that has been released from the British singer’s new album which is set to hit shelves on May 5 through Regal Records.
If you though that “Air Balloon” meant a nicer Allen was on the horizon with the upcoming record, all you need to do is think back at the fact that such a stink was started over her first single, “Hard Out Here.” In the song, she goes ahead and name drops some of pop’s biggest star such as Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Lorde claiming that none of them can sit back and let another take the number one spot on the charts.
Of course they can’t sit back and let some other pop star claim that title spot, Lily; the record labels won’t allow that! You know that.
Oh yeah, there’s also a bit where she talks about periods.
Check out the video below for the song which features Allen dressed up like a rapper in a hoodie with black lights in something that feels very reminiscent to something that MTV would have played back in the 90s.
Lily Allen had a busy weekend beginning with having to defend comments she made in a recent interview published in Shortlist titled “Feminism.” In the article she reveals that the word feminism shouldn’t exist and that men aren’t the real enemy of women; women are.
But while the article did go on to spark a lot of readers, Allen had the final laugh because today she revealed the album art, track list and newest music video for her upcoming album and all those people still have her name in mind.
The album which Allen revealed to be named Sheezus after a guest appearance on The Graham Norton Show is reportedly set to be released on May 6. The cover art features the British singer sitting on steps in front of a beautiful mansion surrounded by three corgis. On the steps are the words “Divide Et Impera” (divide and rule) carved onto them.
As for the newly released track, it’s titled “Our Time” while the music video features the pop star playing different roles and having a good time on the town. The video for the track can be seen below as well as the track list for the upcoming record.

Lily Allen has already released two songs from her upcoming album without so much as a hint to what the album would be titled. With one song speaking out against the way the world treats women and other one that’s more dreamy, it would be a little hard to decipher what might be the titled.
Today, the British spitfire revealed that the name of her album would be Sheezus; a little nudge to Kanye West’s 2013 album, Yeezus.
The songstress revealed the news during a stop at British late night show, The Graham Norton Show. “It’s a confident title choice…and a little nod to Kanye West,” she explained about going that route of titling the album. The show which Allen appears on, alongside Fleming star (or Papa Tony Stark, if you will) Dominic Cooper will air tonight on BBC1.
Sheezus is Allen’s first new album since she signed with Warner Brothers last year, but still, no official release date has been given for the new material. Her last album was 2008’s It’s Not Me, It’s You and she recently revealed that she will have a song featured on the Girls soundtrack.
