You can’t talk about Lizzo without mentioning Lizzo’s outfits.
Melissa Viviane Jefferson, popularly known by her professional name Lizzo, is indeed a bold, daring and beautiful woman. This vivacious lady wore some of the most darling and daring outfits we’ve ever seen.
Although she was born in Detroit, Lizzo began her performing career in Houston, Texas. After a while, she moved to Minneapolis to start another career in hip hop. Lizzo then released two albums: Lizzobangers in 2013 and big grrrl small world in 2015. She met Nice Life and Atlantic Records, after which she produced her first major label EP, coconut oil, in 2016.
Lizzo hadn’t appeared on many’s radar yet, but things quickly changed after the release of her third studio album, Because I love you in 2019. It was the first time Lizzo knew what it was like to be in the top five of the US Billboard 200.
From that point on, it was all hits for Lizzo. Shortly after, Lizzo released “Juice” and “Tempo”. A deluxe version of the album was also released, but this version included one of Lizzo’s 2017 singles “Truth Hurts”.
The song took the world by storm, hitting No. 1 on the Us Billboard Hot 100 two years after its first release.
Around this time, another of his 2016 singles “Good as Hell” was rapidly climbing the charts. It went as high as the top three on the Hot 100 top and was among the top 10 singles by an artist in the UK.
It was arguably the best moment of Lizzo’s career to date as she garnered most of her awards and recognition during this time. She started acting for some time and also received several awards.
Now on to Lizzo’s outfits!
