|Music Mondays is a bi-weekly feature where I'll post my favorite songs, videos, albums and/or artists of the week (or maybe even of all-time).|
I have to thank Flavorwire for introducing me to today's artist, Lizzo. Jillian Mapes (@jumonsmapes) wrote:
Minneapolis’ Melissa Jefferson bridges some pretty impossible gaps: the attitude and delivery of Salt-N-Pepa, and the outspoken empowerment and body positivity of riot grrrl.

Ms. Mapes, you had me at outspoken empowerment. If I had to pick one word to describe Lizzo it would be FIERCE.
