Rooted in Houston rap as Melissa Viviane Jefferson, Lizzo found exposure to all sorts of music including gospel soul and classical flute growing up.

At 21, Lizzo moved to Minneapolis after the death of her father, trying to take a shot into the music scene. In 2013, she released her debut hip-hop-driven album "Lizzobangers". The album features her debut single "Batches and Cookies" featuring Sophia Eris. The Guardian said "At times joyfully nonsensical, Lizzo's stream-of-consciousness rhymes can also be lethally pointed." rating the album 4 out of 5 stars.
From then on, Lizzo steadily grew a following, earning acclaim for her gritty sound.
Lizzo's grit has always been evident in her music which also translates into her mission of addressing social issues covering race, body positivity, and sexuality.
Her next record "Big Grrrl Small World" further raised the bar for Lizzo. Her track "My Skin" served as a 'thesis statement' for her second album. "You can wake up and change many things about your appearance, but the inevitability of waking up in your skin is what unifies us." Lizzo told Vice. The album with its other singles "Humanize" and "Ain't I" made it to Spin's "50 Best Hip-Hop Albums of 2015" at #17.
Though steadily amassing an audience and acclaim for her music that tackles her advocacies for body positivity, race, and sexuality, Lizzo found her big breakthrough in 2019. Her 2017 single "Truth Hurts" became a sleeper hit, becoming her first #1 on the Hot 100. She's also the first solo Black female R&B singer to do so since Rihanna's 2012 single "Diamonds".
