SCOPE has officially announced Minnesota hip-hop artist Lizzo as this year’s University of Iowa homecoming show. Lizzo has toured with Haim and Florence + the Machine, and is known for songs “Fitness,” “Boys,” and “Good as Hell.”

“I’m super excited to have booked Lizzo, because my goal for this year’s homecoming show was to put some diverse people on stage,” Savannah Lane, the talent buyer for SCOPE said in an email to The Daily Iowan. “I’m proud of scope for making diversity a priority and a goal. Lizzo puts on an extremely high energy show, and I hope everyone that attends has a fantastic time and is able to soak up the empowerment and joy that her music creates.”
