With "Special" coming right around the corner, Lizzo broke into the mainstream scene when her sleeper hit single "Truth Hurts" became a global viral hit. Singing "I just took a DNA test, turns out I'm 100% that bitch", she's definitely the queen of 'bangers throughout her career.

She moved to Minneapolis after her father's death, taking her shot for a career in music at 21. 2013 marked the start of her bangers with the release of Lizzo's debut album "Lizzobangers". The hip-hop-induced record was praised by The Guardian saying "At times joyfully nonsensical, Lizzo's stream-of-consciousness rhymes can also be lethally pointed." giving the album four out of five stars.
With grit that tackles body positivity, sexuality, and race, Lizzo's music is more than just whimsical rhymes. Lizzo's craft never fails to induce her power as a woman, and her influence through lyrics of depth. Her second album "Big Grrrl Small World" features her song "My Skin", which she describes as "the thesis statement" of her album. Lizzo told Vice, "You can wake up and change many things about your appearance, but the inevitability of waking up in your skin is what unifies us."
"Big Grrrl Small World" was placed in Spin's "50 Best Hip-Hop Albums of 2015", ranking at #17.
Hilary Saunders of Paste magazine, in a review of Lizzo's sophomore album, expressed that "Hip hop needs a strong female voice today—one that matches the pop magnetism of Beyoncé, but with the political and social awareness of Killer Mike. With Big GRRRL Small World, Lizzo seems primed and ready to fill that spot."
Set on a mission, Lizzo continued to drop her bangers that deliver powerful messages to listeners, driven by her astounding lyrical ability. She released an EP "Coconut Oil" in 2016, her first major-label EP, featuring her sleeper hit "Good as Hell" which would later hit #3 on the US Hot 100 in 2019 along with a version featuring Ariana Grande.
