Lizzo is having the year of her life. The singer, songwriter and rapper exploded onto the scene with lead singles “Juice” and “Tempo,” which catapulted her name into the mainstream light. While the songs hail from her studio album third studio album Cuz I Love You, it was actually “Truth Hurts” off the deluxe album that turned into a viral phenomenon. Currently, real name Melissa Jefferson celebrates her sixth week charting the Billboard Hot 100, on track to beat out Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” for longest running female rap song at #1 (just two more weeks). But beyond the accolades, it’s Lizzo’s fierce, unwavering, confidence putting on for all the females in the world and letting them know with hard work, your dreams can come true too.

Lizzo plays with Ari Lennox and DJ Sophia Eris at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 18, Sunday, October 20 and Monday, October 21 at the Hollywood Palladium.
