Like Anderson .Paak, Lizzo’s style of modern soul blends hip-hop, funk and pop. She broke through in the Minneapolis music scene, where she collaborated with Prince, the patron saint of the type of versatile genre-hopping that Lizzo subscribes to. Her songs are radio-ready and catchy, but they are also thoughtful, sharp and versatile. —Scott Recker
