It's not every day that one of the most buzzed-about new artists of the year books a show at a club in our neck of the woods.

But today, Lizzo has decided to grace us with her presence.

The much-hyped rapper (and flautist!) behind the increasingly omnipresent Song of Summer contender Juice has booked a show at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg on Sept. 10. Ticket prices haven't been announced, but they go on sale Friday. Click here for details.

The tour announcement caps a busy few days for Lizzo, who dropped her debut album Cuz I Love You last week. She played what Variety called a "near flawless performance" at Coachella on Sunday, and numerous critics calling Cuz I Love You one of the year's best albums.

In case you missed it, we named Lizzo one of our top artists to watch in 2019 on a recent episode of the Times' Life of the Party podcast. Check it out above.

The rapper has been sentenced to more than three years in federal prison after pleading guilty to weapons charges stemming from his arrest just before a scheduled concert performance in May. The 22-year-old admitted in August that he falsified information on federal forms to buy four firearms from a Miami-area gun shop on two separate occasions.

    The sentence was far less than the maximum 10-year sentence he could have received.
