Voted by entertainment staffers of the news cooperative, Lizzo dominated the pop, R&B and rap charts in 2019 with songs like “Truth Hurts” and “Good As Hell.”

Lizzo's climb to the top is inspiring. The 31-year-old classically trained flutist grinded as an independent and touring artist for years. She released her first album in 2013 and performed with Prince on his 2014 “Plectrumelectrum” album, released two years before his death. But both went largely unnoticed. She recently revealed that earlier in her career struggles, she worked as a sign spinner for Liberty Tax Service.

Lizzo dropped her major-label debut, “Cuz I Love You,” this year and the success has made her the leading nominee at the 2020 Grammy Awards, where she is up for eight honors.

Lizzo was also named Entertainer of the Year by Time Magazine for her work as a music artist.
