The multi-talented singer and rapper Lizzo is on the Billboard Hot 100 for the seventh week in a row with her smash hit “Truth Hurts.” With this latest achievement in her back pocket, she’s now tied with another female artist, Iggy Azalea, for the longest-running rap song by a female artist.
According to Billboard, the famous and favorite breakup anthem first reached the list back on September 7, spending six consecutive weeks at the top until Travis Scott released “Highest In The Room,” putting “Truth Hurts” at number two.
But now Lizzo’s back at the top spot, neck, and neck with Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX.
Lizzo celebrated on Twitter, declaring that she was making “herstory” and noting that she was crying over the achievement.
“Truth Hurts,” which was originally released in September 2017, made a major come up thanks in part to the video-sharing app TikTok and the song’s cameo in Netflix’s Someone Great. From there, “Truth Hurts” gained the massive popularity it deserved with everyone singing, rapping, and twerking along.
