Who: Melissa Viviane Jefferson, better known by her stage name Lizzo, is an American alternative hip-hop artist. 

Why she's fearless: This body-positive singer and performer has got a serious set of pipes on her. The Minneapolis-based artist released her debut album Lizzobangers in 2013, followed by Big Grrrl Small World in 2015, and finally, only one year later, major-label EP Coconut Oil. 

With pithy lyrics like "I thought I needed to run and find somebody to love, but all I needed was some coconut oil," her tracks espouse self-love and positivity, while remaining raw — or should we say "good as hell"? Either way, Lizzo is definitely one to watch.
