Lizzo Covering Adele's "Someone Like You" Video
Turn it up! If you thought you loved all of Lizzo's songs now, then you have to see her 2011 cover of Adele's "Someone Like You." That's right: before she became the mood-boosting queen, Lizzo used to upload song covers to her YouTube channel lizzomusic. At only 23 years old, Lizzo managed to give a soulful cover of the Adele hit, while also (unknowingly) giving us a glimpse at where her singing career got its start.
The acoustics might not be the best, and she does have to take a second to remember one of the lyrics at one point, but her vocals and piano playing speak for themselves. "Hey! Bored & playing around with music again," Lizzo captioned the video. "Found the chords and decided to have some fun. Thanks for watching!" No, Lizzo, thank YOU.
She's definitely come a long way since her YouTube days, but it's always nice to look back at where it all began. Check out all of Lizzo's greatest covers ahead — including a 2010 flute cover of Alicia Keys's "Empire State of Mind"!
