If you were looking for a little inspiration on how to follow your dreams, you needn’t look any further than this lady! Detroit-born vocalist, Lizzo, is one of the hottest music artists in the game right now, and by the looks of how well her career is going, we suspect this charismatic lady will be making headlines for a while longer! This is girl power like no other.
With talents as bountiful as this lady’s, it’s astonishing to us how Lizzo hadn’t entered the spotlight a long, long time ago. Take her Billboard number one as well as that position as a body positivity advocate into account, and Lizzo undoubtedly stands as the rising star of 2019. Hype Galore is proud to take you through all the ways this vocalist has taken the world by storm.
How It All Began for the Star
First of all, we’d like to say a huge thank you to this lady for gracing the world with tunes like “Good as Hell” and “Truth Hurts.” She’s provided the backing tracks to pretty much every occasion in life. Whether it be a breakup or a job promotion, you best believe we’re blasting Lizzo on the speakers! Now, let’s see how the singer got her big break in the first place.
From a young age, Lizzo (formerly known as Melissa Vivienne Jefferson) worked hard to make a name for herself in the music industry. Even as a young schoolgirl, she’d form music bands with friends! It wasn’t until the star moved to Minneapolis that she kicked off her professional career as a recording artist.
Fast-forwarding to the present day, and Lizzo has well and truly made her mark in the world of music! This widespread success all comes after the 2019 release of her third studio album, Cuz I Love You. Smash hits feature in the album, such as “Juice” and “Tempo,” so it’s not a surprise that the collection of songs made its way into the Billboard 200. Just last month, “Truth Hurts” reached the number one spot on the Billboard charts.
Way More Than Just a Powerful Vocalist
It’s news to no one that Lizzo can belt out the high notes, but singing is really just scratching the surface of this lady’s remarkable talent! Being the born performer we all know and love her to be, Lizzo has dipped her toes into the world of acting, too. Some of her recent onscreen projects include roles in 2019’s crime-comedy, Hustlers, and the progressive children’s animation, UglyDolls.
If there’s one thing Lizzo would love to be recognized for, its a role model of the 21st century! This performer has been known on multiple occasions to advocate the message of body positivity and to love yourself regardless of your race, gender, and most importantly size. Her social media accounts are full of glam photos that reinforce the message to her fans the importance of self-love. What did we do to deserve an artist like this?
