Lizzo Career

At a young age, the “Hustlers” actress began rapping. By the age of 14, she was a member of the “Cornrow Clique,” a musical group she formed with her friends. She received her moniker, which is also her professional name, from the group. It’s a remix of “Lissa” that’s influenced by Jay-“Izzo Z’s (H.O.V.A.)”.

She eventually moved to Minneapolis in 2011 and joined indie bands like Lizzo & the Larva Ink, as well as co-founding the Chalice, an all-female band. “We Are the Chalice,” their debut album, was released in 2012. Lizzobangers, her hip-hop-focused debut album, was released on October 15, 2013, and was followed by a fall 2013 tour of the United Kingdom and the United States.
She persisted, and on David Letterman’s 7th October episode in 2014, she was a musical guest. Her sophomore studio album, “Big Grrrl Small World,” was released on 11 December 2015.

Her first major-label extended play, “Coconut Oil,” was published on 7 October 2016. “Good As Hell,” the main single from her extended play, was included in the soundtrack for the film Barbershop: The Next Cut, and is one of her most well-known songs. The extended play’s lyrics tackle topics of body positivity, self-love, and the path to those goals. In 2017, she embarked on the Good as Hell Tour to promote the entire play, inspired by the song.
She made her acting debut in 2019 with the voice of Lydia, a purple-haired perfect doll in the animated film UglyDolls, and a supporting role on Hustlers, an American black criminal comedy-drama film. Her third album, Juice, was released by Atlantic Records the same year, with the lead track “Juice.” “Cuz I Love You” was the title of the following month’s album. Soon after, she was invited to play at the Coachella Music Festival. She’s been nominated for prizes ever since, and she’s won a few of them. Lizzo made her Saturday Night Live debut on December 21st, 2019, with Eddie Murphy hosting.
