EDITORS’ NOTES

This Twin Cities powerhouse sounds fierce whether she's singing soul or spitting rhymes, and her second album oozes brazen charisma as it flits between genres. “Ain’t I” is a bass-blaring, Kanye-referencing, braggadocious banger, while the glitter-spangled R&B of “Humanize” aptly showcases our heroine's softer side. But both styles underline the fact that Big Grrrl Small World is a self-love manifesto, especially for those who don’t fit unrealistic beauty standards. “En Love” offers the perfect synthesis: ecstatic synth-pop switches to boisterous trap as Lizzo issues the shoulder-brushing declaration, “I’m in love with myself!”
