The rapper reminisces on recording with the icon with Fuse at ACL 2016

Not many artists can say they've had the chance to work with Prince, and Lizzo was one of the lucky few! The hip-hop starlet sat down with Fuse at Austin City Limits 2016 to reveal her experience working with the icon.

Lizzo explains that it was a surreal moment that she'll probably never get over. "It is kind of immortalized as a fable. It's almost like a fairytale in my mind," she said about working on 2014's PLECTRUMELECTRUM album. "He let us do whatever we wanted. He summoned us to Paisley Park and said, 'Treat the song as if it's your own.

The singer continues to go into detail about recording the song and actually getting to use Prince's coveted microphone. "I felt like I transcended from being just a vocalist to an artist," she tells us.
