Lizzo Finally Hits Number One Spot With 'Truth Hurts'

Two years after its release, Lizzo's "Truth Hurts" has stormed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 -- and everyone is celebrating.

The singer and classically trained flautist announced the news on Twitter, writing, "this is a w for all of us".

"Anybody who ever felt like they voice wasn't heard. Anybody who felt like they weren't good enough. You are. We are. Champions. I love yall 3 much. Lizzbians Unite."

"Truth Hurts" was released way back in September 2017 but has been slowly, yet powerfully, picking up fans as Lizzo has blown away audiences at Glastonbury, Coachella and, over the weekend, at Beyoncé and Jay-Z's Made In America Festival.

Lizzo now joins Rihanna, Beyoncé, Janelle Monae and Cardi B as the only black women to hit the #1 spot, Media Charts pointed out.

Lizzo is also the first black woman to reach the #1 spot in 2019.

Cardi B wrote on Twitter that "the fact that Lizzo a couple months ago felt underestimated and now she have a #1" made her "emotional".

Aussie fans will get a chance to see Lizzo live next year as she heads down under for the 2020 FOMO Festival which wil hit Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne in January. Ticket info can be found here.
