She’s not even 30 and she’s been a founding member of not one, but four indie hip-hop groups. You might have seen Lizzo, a transplant from Houston to Minneapolis, on Full Frontal With Samantha Bee the day after the presidential election. She performed a comforting rendition of “Lift Every Voice” and the sassy, girl-anthem “Good As Hell.” Since starting her career in music back in 2011, she’s released two solo albums (Lizzobangers, Big Grrrl Small World) and her Coconut Oil EP, which just came out this year. Both of her albums have gained critical acclaim, including with Time, Spin, and The Guardian. Coconut Oil is definitely her best work so far, with great tracks like “Scuse Me,” which is another pretty rad feminist anthem, and “Worship Me,” which is a playful dance song (and feels a little bit like if the s.o. in Fatboy Slim’s “Praise You” had recorded a song).
