Lizzo returns to Houston for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo on March 13, 2020.
A favorite amongst Houstonians, Lizzo started to see commercial success after her first major label EP, “Coconut Oil,” landed on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in 2016. Rolling Stone named the EP one of the 20 Best Pop Albums of the year, and she was just getting started.
2019 was the year of Lizzo. Following her successful EP, she released her first album with a major label in April and spent more than 33 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart. “Cuz I Love You” was named one of the best albums of the year by outlets like Billboard and Rolling Stone. The album featured several songs that would reach high levels on charts across the country and the globe. Originally released in 2017 and re-released in 2019, “Truth Hurts” is nothing short of an anthem, and her diehard fans know every word.
Lizzo ended her incredible year on a high note. She was named TIME’s Entertainer of the Year and received her first GRAMMY® Award nominations, leading the list as the most-nominated artist for the 2020 awards. With her chart-topping hits, award nominations, industry recognition and fan adulation, it’s easy to see why 2019 was the year of Lizzo.
Lizzo will bring her award-winning hits to RODEOHOUSTON® for the first time on Friday, March 13.
