Breakout star Lizzo stuns on the cover of Elle Magazine wearing designs by Rihanna.
In 2017 Lizzo recorded the now legendary "Truth Hurts," and no-one cared, It seemed to her that no-one was listening to her music.
She never imagined that song would go to #1 overnight, or that she'd be on top of the world, and wearing diamonds on the cover of Elle Magazine.
“I just felt like I was throwing music into the world and not even making a splash.” Lizzo
On August 22, 2019, Lizzo stepped onto the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards and her dynamite performance blew her song "Truth Hurts" to #1 on the Hot 100 Billboard.
Less than a month later she is on the cover of Elle Magazine's October issue dedicated to women in music, in an outfit from Rihanna's Savage X Fenty line, dripping diamonds by De Beers.
Lizzo is now only the 5th black women to hit #1 on the Hot 100 this decade
LIzzo dazzles on Elle, wearing a provocative black bustier which enhances her full curves, acid green tights, and an acid green parka twisted into an outlandish cape. She is sizzling hot and completely unique. She is Lizzo.
After her April debut in Coachella following the release of her first album with Atlantic Records, "Cuz I Love You," Lizzo was performing at the 2019 BET Awards, and she sang a dynamite rendition of “Truth Hurts" which had Rihanna on her feet.
It's all happening for Lizzo, she even landed a role in the film "Hustlers" with Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B, and a beauty campaign with Urban Decay.
She was also nominated for two 2019 MTV Video Music Award nominations, including Best New Artist, and of course, her song is #1 and some of the other songs from her new album are hitting the charts.
Watch out for Lizzo, cause she'd rocking the world!
When Lizzo stepped out onto the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 26, 2019, her song "Truth Hurts" was languishing at #50.
Lizzo is now only the 5th black women to hit #1 on the Hot 100 this decade, the others being Beyoncé, Rihanna, Janelle Monáe, and of course, Cardi B.
And who knows, even though "Truth Hurts" was recorded in 2017, it may well earn Lizzo her first Grammy nomination for the 2020 awards.
