Back in 2017, on the day she dropped her now-massive sleeper hit “Truth Hurts,” Lizzo felt so demoralized, both by the industry and by life in general, that she texted the song’s producer to say she was thinking about quitting. Lucky for us all, she didn't. In the two years since that fateful day, Lizzo has become a bonafide breakout star. In April, she made her Coachella debut and released her debut album. Two months later, at the 2019 BET Awards, she delivered a rollicking, knockout performance of “Truth Hurts,” that made Rihanna stand up and cheer. She also landed a major beauty campaign with Urban Decay; filmed a role in Hustlers with Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B; hit the fifth spot on Billboard’s Top 100 chart; and earned two 2019 MTV Video Music Award nominations. Top top it off, she landed her first ELLE cover for our 2019 Women in Music issue, and played a game of Song Association to celebrate. Tune in as she sings Beyoncé, Janelle Monáe, and more, in a race against our clock.
