We can’t get enough of (relative) newcomer Lizzo and it appears the Billboard Hot 100 echoes our sentiment.
The rapping singer-songwriter – whose underground buzz helped catapult her to success in late 2018 – is reaping the reward of her hard work thanks to the ongoing success of her major label debut album, ‘Cuz I Love You,’ and its single, ‘Truth Hurts.’
The Ricky Reed-produced cut – originally released in 2017 – became the singer’s crowning glory due to its appearance on the Netflix series, ‘Someone Great.’ Just weeks after it was announced the song had become her first Hot 100 top 40 placement ever (click here to read more), it jumped into the top 5 for the first time last week (click here to see).
As if earning the honor of being her inaugural top 5 hit wasn’t enough, the tune’s rise to #4 this week – thanks to a handsome mix of streaming, digital downloads, and radio airplay – has made it a career peak for the burgeoning diva (to date).
