Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, is an American rapper who is making a lot of buzz in the market right now. When asked about her alias 'Lizzo,' the star claimed she used as a variant of 'Lissa.' Well, there's that, but when we talk about her career, the 31-year-old star stepped into rap game back in 2013 when she released her first studio album, 'Lizzobangers.' After her first album, the rapper took a long hiatus before launching her second album, 'Big Grrrl Small Word,' back in 2015.
Despite staying away from the industry for almost two years, she was named one of fourteen music artists to listen by Time Magazine in 2014, which kind of helped her get the momentum to her slow career. The star's real talent, however, was recognized by fans only in 2019 when she became the Billboard chart-topper with the release of her third studio album, 'Cuz I Love You.' The album itself managed the top five position in the Billboard 200.
But in all those years of average fan following, and not so successful career, Lizzo, who identifies herself as a queer, was able to create a huge fortune out of her music. Let's find out some intriguing facts about Lizzo's net worth.
