If you're looking for a Minnesota artist who took off this year, check out "Lizzobanger." That's the album released this year by local rapper Lizzo, which topped the Star Tribune's annual best-of list.

The Current's music reporter Andrea Swensson and l'etoile Magazine's Jon Hunt join The Daily Circuit to discuss news from the local music scene this year. We'll also play some of their favorite tunes.

Lizzo - 'Faded'

One of Swensson's favorites: Taj Raj - "Pollice Verso"

One of Hunt's favorites: Har Mar Superstar - "Lady, You Shot Me"
