    Lizzo may be at the top of her game right now, but she’s been eyeing the throne for nearly a decade. A recently unearthed homemade video from 2011 captures a young Lizzo covering the Adele smash “Someone Like You” on piano with both poise and passion.

    As Uproxx points out, the old video is taken from the R&B star’s uncovered YouTube channel, which has just barely 900 subscribers. “Hey! Bored & playing around with music again,” Lizzo, then only 23, prefaces the clip. “Found the chords and decided to have some fun. Thanks for watching!”
