Melissa Jefferson begon haar muzikale loopbaan als rapper en kwam daarna in verschillende groepen terecht, waaronder Lizzo & The Lava Ink en The Shalice. In het najaar van 2013 brengt ze met Lizzobangers haar debuutalbum uit. In 2016 maakt ze de overstap naar Atlantic waar Coconut Oil haar eerste ep is.


Na de release van de single Girls (in 2018) lijkt ze met de opvolger, Juice, met grote stappen de rest van de wereld te kunnen veroveren. Juice staat vier weken in de Top 40. In 2019 krijgt haar volgende single, Truth Hurts, een plekje op de Deluxe-uitvoering van haar derde studioalbum, Cuz I Love You. Die track wordt een nummer 1-hit in de Amerikaanse top 100. Van Good As Hell, dat ondertussen daar ook de top 20 heeft bereikt, verschijnt in oktober een tweede versie waarop ook Ariana Grande te horen is.
Vanaf 25 maart 2022 heeft ze op Amazon Prime haar eigen video-serie, Lizzo's Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, hierin gaat ze op zoek naar danseressen voor haar 2022 tour. Na drie jaar lanceert Lizzo in april 2022 haar nieuwe single About Damn Time wat afkomstig is van haar nog te verschijnen vierde album. In juli 2022 verscheen haar vierde album genaamd Special. Ze brengt twee dagen na de release van haar album de tweede single uit genaamd 2 Be Loved (Am I Ready).


Songtekst

Sheesh
Mmm
Girl, I'm 'bout to have a panic attack

I did the work
It didn't work, ah, ah
That truth, it hurts
Goddamn, it hurts, ah, ah (Goddamn, it hurts)
That lovey-dovey shit
Was not a fan of it
I'm good with my friends
I don't want a man, girl

I'm in my bed
I'm way too fine to be here alone (Too fine)
On other hand
I know my worth, ah, ah
And now he callin' me
Why do I feel like this
What's happenin' to me
Oh, oh, oh

Am I ready
Girl, there ain't a doubt
Am I ready
What you talkin' 'bout
Am I ready
You gon' figure it out
To be loved
To be loved

Am I ready
You deserve it now
Cause I want it
That's what I'm talkin' about
Am I ready
You gon' figure it out
To be loved
To be loved

How am I supposed to love somebody else
When I don't like myself, like, ooh
Guess I better learn to like this, ooh (True)
It might take my whole life just to do (Damn, hey, hey)
He call me Melly (Ay)
He squeeze my belly
I'm too embarrassed
To say I like it
Girl, is this my boo (Is this my boo)
That's why I'm askin' you
Cause you know I've been through

Am I ready
Girl, there ain't a doubt
Am I ready
What you talkin' 'bout
Am I ready
You gon' figure it out
To be loved (To be loved)
To be loved (To be loved)

Am I ready
You deserve it now
Cause I want it
That's what I'm talkin' about
Am I ready
You gon' figure it out
To be loved
To be loved (Yeah)

You found me
I was fed up with the fantasy
What you wanna do
Think I'm ready, ooh
Think you like that
Think you like that
When I clap back like that
Let me know

You found me
I was fed up with the fantasy
What you wanna do
Think I'm ready, ooh
Think you like that
Think you like that
When I clap back like that
Let me know

Am I ready
Girl, there ain't a doubt
Am I ready
What you talkin' 'bout
Am I ready
You gon' figure it out
To be loved (To be loved)
To be loved (To be loved)

Am I ready
You deserve it now
Cause I want it
That's what I'm talkin' about
Am I ready
You gon' figure it out
To be loved (To be loved)
To be loved (To be loved)

Am I ready
Yesterday, I would have run away
And I don't know why
I don't know why (To be loved)
Know why (To be loved)

Am I ready
Yesterday, I would have run away
And I don't know why (Did you know)
I don't know why
But I'm ready
