We know and love Lizzo for her confidence-boosting anthems (“Good as Hell,” anyone?), her penchant for chugging tequila out of rhinestone encrusted bottles and her empowering body positivity. Now, Lizzo is making another major move.
The 31-year-old singer reportedly just became the first black solo female R&B artist to earn the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 list with her massive hit “Truth Hurts.” The ditty was flying high at number three until it knocked Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’s “Señorita” off the top spot on Tuesday morning. And even though “Truth Hurts” was definitely the song of the summer, you might be surprised to know its rise to Billboard fame was actually years in the making. In fact, Lizzo released the song two years ago in September 2017.
She reflected on her enormous accomplishment on Instagram and proved that in classic Lizzo form, she’s celebrating by living her life in all caps.
