By now, we all know Lizzo can blow both on the microphone and as a classically trained flutist.
But before she was the superstar that I've come to stan, she was just a girl doing YouTube covers like most millennial artists trying to make it in the industry.
Thanks to YouTube's genius algorithm, I recently came across a video of 22-year-old Lizzo performing a beautiful cover of Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind" from January 2010.
After sitting in awe for nearly 5 minutes, I clicked through the YouTube channel, aptly titled "lizzomusic," and unearthed more covers, including a gorgeous rendition she did of Adele's "Someone Like You" in September 2011.
Her hair? Yes! Her voice? Yes! But most of all, her playing the freaking piano flawlessly? HELL YES!
I definitely did not know Queen Lizzo could play the piano as well as the flute. She really wasn't lying when she said she is 100% THAT bitch.
I wasn't alone in feeling like I had discovered a hidden treasure chest. Several YouTubers left comments expressing the same sentiments:

Most people couldn't believe how young Lizzo still looks, almost 10 years later:
