Rising singer Lizzo is fast proving she is a force that can’t be reckoned with. The “Juice” singer has been showing off all her vocal/dancing/flute-playing badassness with live performances and crush-worthy magazine covers in the build-up to her highly anticipated debut album, Cuz I Love You.
Within 24 hours of its Friday drop, the album peaked at number one in the US — beating out Beyoncé’s Homecoming. Just one day before that, she slayed our lives with a set on Jimmy Kimmel Live that shows she is not only ready for primetime – she is primetime.
Draped in exclusive Marathon “Crenshaw” jerseys honoring the late Nipsey Hussle, the beauty took to the stage to perform her lead single “Juice” — and it was everything we’ve come to expect from the body positive diva –
She kicked off the set getting her hair braided without missing a single note while Shelby Swain (aka the Beyoncé of baby hair and the stylist behind Zendaya’s infamous Oscar faux locs) not only finished up her cornrows, but also installed a butt-grazing power ponytail.
Lizzo complemented her killer hair and fashion game with a dramatic face beat by Alexx Mayo.
