Coconut Oil is the debut solo EP by singer and rapper Lizzo. It was released on October 7, 2016 by Nice Life Recording Company and Atlantic Records, Lizzo's first major-label release. Lizzo co-wrote each song on the album, while enlisting Ricky Reed, Christian Rich, Dubbel Dutch, and Jesse Shatkin for the album's production. The result was a departure from Lizzo's previous alternative hip hop releases. Lyrically, the extended play explores themes of body positivity, self-love, and the journey to those ideals. Coconut Oil received positive reviews from music critics. Commercially, Coconut Oil peaked at number 44 on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, making it Lizzo's first release to chart. To promote the extended play, Lizzo embarked on the Good as Hell Tour in 2017. "Good as Hell" was released as the EP's first single, as part of the soundtrack for the 2016 film Barbershop: The Next Cut. "Phone" was released shortly after the announcement of the extended play as the second single. "Scuse Me" was released as the third and final single in early 2017, and was accompanied with a music video. Lizzo's song "Worship" was featured in the first episode of Step Up: High Water.
