Childhood

Melissa Vivian Jefferson was born on April 27, 1988 in Detroit. The girl began to show interest in rap at school age. At the age of 14, Melissa formed her first band Cornrow Clique. She soon received the name "Lizzo", which later became her widely recognized stage name.

Shortly after graduating from college, Lizzo moved to Minnesota, where she began her musical career ...

Getting started…

Success did not come immediately. At first, Lizzo performed with local bands, after which she became one of the founders of the girl group The Chalice.

In 2013, Lizzo released her own debut album called Lizzobangers! The album topped the Tally 2013 rating according to the Star Tribune magazine. One of The Guardian's critics commented:

"Lizzo's gleefully nonsensical stream-of-consciousness rhymes can also be deadly..."

The same year turned out to be for Lizzo tours, which were held on both sides of the ocean! The singer even performed as the opening act for Har Mar Superstar!

Success!

As mentioned above, success came to Lizzo after the release of Cuz I Love You. In fact, this record became a turning point in the career of our heroine: she attracted the attention of the general public and after 3 months she settled on the fourth position of the Billboard 200!

The album's lead single, "Juice", was released in early 2019 via Atlantic Records. The song became a popular hit, and a video was later shot for it.

Shortly after her success with Cuz I Love You, Lizzo was invited to the Coachella Festival!

In addition to "Juice", Lizzo's music piggy bank has another mega-popular hit, known as "Truth Hurts"! This composition also became the pearl of the album Cuz I Love You. In many ways - her success is due to a gorgeous video and ... the TikTok application!

As for the clip, it has a kind of wedding theme... At the moment, the video has collected more than 200 million views on YouTube!

If everything is clear with the clip, then it’s worth talking about the last success factor ... Yes, yes, it’s not the first time that the TikTok platform has made some song a hit! Users liked Lizzo's track so much that it soon became a viral trend in the vastness of this application ... All this, of course, also aroused increased public interest in the person of the singer herself.

At that time, "Truth Hurts" became the first No1 for the singer ... The composition was confidently in the lead in the Billboard hot hundred, and very soon after the release it was played on every radio station! "Truth Hurts" remained at the top of the chart for 7 weeks! And yes, this track made Lizzo the third female rapper to top the Hot 100! The singer also became the first solo R&B artist to take the lead since Rihanna and her hit "Diamonds".

In one of her interviews, Lizzo shared her feelings about this song ... The singer said that the initial lack of success of Truth Hurts made her seriously think about leaving the music business ...

But, fortunately, success came (though not immediately)! All this led to the fact that already in September 2019, Cuz I Love You became gold! In general, the disc has sold 500,000 copies worldwide!

In 2020, Lizzo was nominated in three categories at once: R&B / pop and hip-hop!

body positivity

The fight against excess weight haunted Lizzo from early childhood ... As a result, the girl became a supporter of body positivity and self-love, which attracted the attention of the public!

Lizzo's love for her own forms is reflected in her work... And now it's not just about lyrics or videos, but also about her group of dancers Big Grrrls!

Many fans of the singer admire her forms and self-confidence! Yes, and Lizzo herself considers her body "damn beautiful"! But it wasn’t always like this… She admitted more than once that it took her a while to feel so confident:

“I love my body! No matter what angle I look at it from… My body is always beautiful… But it took me a long time to figure it out!”

Lizzo is also not afraid to be open about her mental state and its impact on her career.

Conclusion…

Born in Detroit and a global star, Lizzo returned to her hometown in the summer of 2019 to perform at the Mo Pop!

“I was thinking about my father and how proud he would be of me right now,” the singer commented, wiping away her tears. Her father, Michael Jefferson, died while Melissa was in college...

 

"I know I'm not the brightest artist - but I do it all for the love of music," she said. "I want to make this world a better place!"
