Lizzo earns her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 as “Truth Hurts” rises from No. 3. The boost was due in part to her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, where she sang a medley of “Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell”
This is just the latest example of Lizzo’s rapidly rising star power. The singer, songwriter and rapper recently showed footage of none other than music legend Beyoncé getting down at one of her concerts.
The rapper/singer celebrated the milestone via Instagram on Tuesday, deeming it a victory, not just for her, but all her fans.
“We’re number 1,” she wrote. “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.”
Lizzo also shared a screenshot of a 2017 tweet, in which she vowed to relentlessly promote the “Truth Hurts” video because it was the best she ever made.
