I’d never heard of Lizzo but good God am I glad I have now.
28-year-old Melissa Jefferson (AKA Lizzo) is a Minneapolis-based rapper and singer who has had some success online but obviously deserves a lot more of our attention.
Check out her new video “Phone” below and set your eyes to stun.
Featuring an excellent mix of Lizzo and some backup dancers killing it on their own, the video also features some high quality voguing from some queen who know whats up.
Lizzo is set to drop her new album Coconut Oil on Oct. 7th, about three years after the release of her first studio album Lizzobangers.
Prior to solo projects, Lizzo was a member of Ellypseas as well as a few other hip hop projects that relied heavily on minimal beats to cause booties to shake. Check out 2013′s “Batches and Cookies” below:
