At the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, "Bad Guy" singer Billie Eilish took home some of the night's biggest awards, including Song of the Year and Album of the Year for "WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?" However, Lizzo received eight nominations, the most of any artist, and took home two trophies herself, including Best Traditional R&B Performance For "Jerome" and Best Urban Contemporary Album for her 2019 album, "Cuz I Love You." How much is the new Grammy winner worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, is worth $10 million. As stated by the outlet, the nickname Lizzo came from rapping in her youth. The nickname was meant to be a variant of "Lissa," which was a nod to Jay-Z's "Izzo (H.O.VA)."

She would later go on to study music, specifically playing the flute, at the University of Houston. From there, she began focusing on creating her career. In 2013, she released her debut album, "Lizzobangers," followed by "Big Grrrl Small World" in 2015 and, most recently, "Cuz I Love You" in 2019.

The singer also has benefitted from endorsement deals with brands like Urban Decay and Absolut.

In 2019, the "Juice" singer spoke to People about how at one time she had wanted to give up on her dreams of being recognized for her musical talent.

"The day I released ‘Truth Hurts’ was probably one of the darkest days I’ve had ever in my career. I remember thinking, 'If I quit music now, nobody would notice. This is my best song ever, and nobody cares,'" the musician recalled.

Continuing, she revealed that "a lot of people rallied; my producer, my publicist and my family, they were like, 'Just keep going because this is the darkest before the dawn.'”

"Now the song that made me want to quit is the song that everyone’s falling in love with me for, which is such a testament to journeys: Your darkest day turns into your brightest triumph," she added.
