    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.

    Talk about a throwback!

    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.

    A girl has many talents!

    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.

    You know it's a throwback when the description includes a MySpace link:

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

    Others praised her artistry from the get-go:

    And it was all thanks to the YouTube algorithm resurfacing the videos!

    Thanks for reminding us to never give up on our dreams, Lizzo!
