Kylie Jenner's "Rise and Shine" has transcended its place a viral meme and become something bigger—something almost (but not quite) like a real song.

That's a lot to ask of a two-second clip of audio, but that's where we are. In addition to spawning countless memes, a bopping EDM remix, and official merch, the, um, track has now inspired legitimate celebrity covers—most recently by none other than the amazing Lizzo.

During a recent concert in Pasadena, California, the "Truth Hurts" singer played her flute and then belted out her own rendition of the now-famous ditty.

Thankfully, the instantly-iconic performance was recorded and shared to Twitter. Watch it for yourself below:

One fan summed up the only acceptable reaction to the clip, writing, "When I thought I couldn’t love her any more than I already do she hits us with the anthem of the year."

Lizzo isn't the only celebrity who has dropped a cover of Kylie's "Rise and Shine" tune. Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson also recorded a cover, which they shared on Instagram this weekend:
