Fellow Boomers, you’ll want to know about Lizzo–she’s sizzling hot on the music scene; at 31-years old, she’s been around (Texas, Minneapolis) and paid her dues. The result is a muti-talented, charming, smart rap/pop//R&B star with a large body and a larger than life personality who exudes joy and confidence, and is also an ardent cheerleader for self acceptance and for a positive body image.
In 2014, Time magazine named Lizzo among 14 artists to watch–it took five years, but in 2019 she busted through with the biggest hit of her career (and first number one) “Truth Hurts,” and, right now, she’s at #1 again on Top 40 with “Good as Hell,” which is also charting Top10 on Adult Top 40/Rhythmic Top 40.
“Good as Hell” is uptempo-fun-rah-rah, reminiscent of 1982’s Grammy nominated “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls.
The Grammys are happening soon, and LIzzo has nominations for “Song the Year,” “Record of the Year,” “Album Of The Year,” “Best Pop Solo Performance,” and ” Best New Artist.”
You can catch her on this week’s “Saturday Night Live” (Dec. 21st).
