One Direction alum Niall Horan told the story of how he first met Lizzo. Niall says she didn't miss a beat with her flirtatious comeback after he told her than she was "smashing it".
Lizzo is absolutely killing it. The rapper and singer nabbed her first number one single with 'Truth Hurts' in 2019 and secured some much deserved Grammy nominations along the way. If her social media is anything to go by, Lizzo has no problem saying what's on her mind and a flirty chance encounter with One Direction alum Niall Horan proves that Lizzo doesn't miss a beat...ever. To be honest, we're going to need her to give us any and all pick-up lines she has saved up.
Niall Horan stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to tell the story of the first time he met Lizzo and it sounds like the flirty vibes were on 10. It all started in London while Niall was doing radio promo and the two managed to arrange a quick meeting.
"Someone said 'Lizzo's here, she'd love to meet you," Niall explained. "So, we're passing in the corridor. I was like, 'ah, lovely to meet you'. I gave her a big hug."
Niall told her, "your voice is incredible, your songs are amazing. You're absolutely smashing it. And literally, without missing a beat, she went 'you can smash this.'" You. can. smash. this (!)
Niall reacted to the flirty comeback: " I was just like 'fair play.' I actually started blushing, myself."

After their meeting, Lizzo told the same story on the radio and Niall took their flirt fest to the internet, tweeting "love you Lizzo." LIzzo, of course, responded, "call me".
Dear reader, I truly hope that man called her.
I think we can all agree that Lizzo's drip is out of this world. A collab between Niall "fair play" Horan and Melissa "you can smash this" Jefferson sounds like an absolute dream.
