If you turn on any Top 40 radio station, you will quickly hear a song by Lizzo. If you haven’t heard any of her songs yet, do a Google search stat. Head on over to Spotify or Pandora and get her jams playing, trust me. Lizzo is a force to be reckoned with in 2019. Not only are her songs fun and catchy, she is an empowering woman. If you want to feel like a kick butt woman, turn it up and get dancing. I suggest her song, “Good As Hell.”
After seeing that her performance at the BET Awards was trending, I had to check her out. Since then, she has become one of my favorite people to follow on social media and her songs are blasted everywhere I go. At home getting work done on my computer, Lizzo is playing on Spotify. In my minivan headed to pick up my kids at school, Lizzo is blaring with my windows down.
Here are my 4 reasons why you should be paying attention to Lizzo ::
She’s all about body positivity :: If you do an image search on Lizzo, you will find multiple images of a woman who is 100% comfortable in her skin. She’s been on the cover of magazines, even some who have rarely showcased a plus size woman. Lizzo exudes confidence and preaches that everyone woman should love the skin they are in. She is truly a pioneer for all plus sized ladies and who can’t applaud that?
She raps, sings and plays the flute :: Lizzo has soulful ballads, twerk worthy beats and even busts out the flute every now and then. Yes, flute. Her flute even has a name, Sasha Flute. Lizzo studied classical music focusing on flute at the University of Houston.
Her Instagram account :: One of the best things I did this year was follow Lizzo on Instagram. She has tons of personality and you can tell her posts are her own and authentic. She is unfiltered and entertaining. With over 4 million followers, she is one to follow that’s for sure!
Her lyrics :: These are just a few of my favorite lyrics from her songs. These are empowering, witty and feel good lyrics that you can shamelessly sing along to from the top of your lungs! “No, I’m not a snack at all! Look, baby, I’m the whole damn meal.” “Woke up feelin’ like I just might run for President / Even if there ain’t no precedent, switchin’ up the messaging.” “I’m like chardonnay, get better over time.” “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, don’t say it ’cause I know I’m cute.”
