The 27-year-old born Melissa Jefferson is now labelmates with the biggest names in pop music, including Wiz Khalifa, Paramore, Kehlani, Ed Sheeran, Missy Elliott, Skrillex ... well, just see for yourself.

Lizzo will operate under Atlantic's Nice Life Recording Company imprint, which was recently launched by musician/producer Ricky Reed, with whom Lizzo collaborated on her banging new Barbershop 3 soundtrack single, "Good As Hell."

Lizzo's 2015 sophomore album, Big Grrrl Small World, was released on her own label BGSW. Lizzobangers, her 2013 debut, came out on Minneapolis indie Totally Gross National Product.

It's late on a Friday so we'll keep this post short, but raise your happy hour pint glass to this mega-talented local making a huge leap.
