The strip club revenge movie Hustlers has added another rising star to its already stacked cast: Rapper/singer/flautist/generally delightful human being Lizzo will make her on-screen debut in the film, joining Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, and more.

Lorene Scafaria writes and directs the film, which follows a group of former strip club employees who set out to scam the stinking rich men who patronize their club. The full cast includes Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Mercedes Ruehl, Trace Lysette, Mette Towley, and Madeline Brewer. It’s currently shooting in New York and will hit theaters Sept. 13.

Lizzo’s casting comes just days after she released her major label debut album Cuz I Love You and dominated Coachella with two buzzy performances. Although Hustlers will mark Lizzo’s first on-screen appearance, she’s also lending her voice to the upcoming animated film UglyDolls (in theaters May 3).

Here’s hoping her character in Hustlers will get a chance to show off her mad flute skills.
