The memorable album covers of 2019 consist of fierce, uncompromising self-portraits. On "Cuz I Love You," Lizzo presents her nude self as a fully realized woman exuding power and grace. "Cuz I Love You" is an important statement of body positivity, and one that Lizzo made often throughout 2019. On the other hand, the striking close-up of Jenny Lewis’s torso on the cover of "On the Line" invites curiosity by what it reveals and does not reveal – her bare arms and cleavage complementing a glitzy dress that evokes vintage Las Vegas (in fact, the dress is an homage to one that her mother wore when she performed in 1970s Las Vegas). Both Lizzo and Jenny Lewis capture images of artists in control of their own bodies, sharing what they want on her own terms. For more memorable album covers from 2019, check out my presentation.
