Life and career

Lizzo grew up in Houston, Texas, and moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 2011. She began her career in rapping while living in Texas.[9] Lizzo started rapping as a teenager in the Southwest Alief part of Houston, Texas, which is known as “the SWAT." At 14, she formed a group called "Cornrow Clique" with her best friends.[10] In Minneapolis, she performed with indie groups including the electro soul-pop duo, Lizzo & the Larva Ink.[11] During this time she helped form three-piece all female rap/R&B group, The Chalice. In 2012, The Chalice released their first album, We Are the Chalice, which was locally successful.[12]

Lizzobangers, Lizzo's debut album produced by Lazerbeak and Ryan Olson,[13] was released on October 15, 2013 to regional and national success.[14] The album focuses with laser precision solely on hip-hop — classic, boombox-blowing, chest-beating hip-hop, with extra greasy beats provided by Lazerbeak of Doomtree fame[15]. Lizzo toured the US and UK in the fall of 2013 opening for Har Mar Superstar and additionally sang with his band.[16][17] In October 2013, Lizzo won City Pages' "Picked to Click" award for best new Twin Cities artist.[18] In November of the same year, Time named her one of 14 music artists to watch in 2014.[19]

On June 1, 2014, Lizzo shared the stage with St. Paul and The Broken Bones, performing "A Change Is Gonna Come" together.[20] On October 7, 2014, Lizzo appeared as the musical guest on the Late Show with David Letterman.[21]

In September 2014, Lizzo was featured alongside The Chalice bandmates Sophia Eris and Claire de Lune on the song "BoyTrouble" on Prince and 3rdEyeGirl's album Plectrumelectrum.[22]

Big Grrrl Small World was released on December 11, 2015.[23] Lizzo's first major-label EP, Coconut Oil, was released on October 7, 2016.[24]

Lizzo appeared as a guest judge on the tenth season of RuPaul's Drag Race.[25] On working with Prince, Lizzo says the experience was "surreal... almost like a fairytale" and that it was "something I will never actually get over".[26]

In 2018, Lizzo toured both with Haim and Florence and the Machine[27] and is beginning her own personal tour for Cuz I Love You in 2019.

After struggling with body issues at an early age, Lizzo advocates for body positivity and self-love,[28] including making diversity the focus of her music, in regards to one's body (in "Fitness" and "Juice"), sexuality ("Boys"), race ("My Skin") and more.[29] Her group of back-up dancers, the Big Grrrls, consists of all plus-size dancers.[30] Highlighting body inclusivity and celebrating individuality, Lizzo appeared in ModCloth's "Say It Louder" campaign. It launched on June 11, 2018.[31][32] In the same month, she sported the first plus-size outfit made for FIT's Future of Fashion runway show by Grace Insogna at an LGBTQ event at Pride Island.[33]

Lizzo was profiled in the June 2018 Teen Vogue Music Issue.[34] Her single "Juice" was released on January 4, 2019, by Atlantic Records.[35] On February 14, 2019, she released the title track off her third studio album Cuz I Love You, which was fully released on April 19, 2019.[36]
