Billboard Hot 100: Lizzo Lands Third Consecutive Week at #1 with ‘Truth Hurts’

Published: Monday 16th Sep 2019 by Rashad

Thanks to a strong union of radio airplay, digital downloads, and streams, Lizzo‘s breakthrough hit, ‘Truth Hurts,’ extends its reign atop the Billboard Hot 100.

Details inside:

Billboard reports:

‘”Truth Hurts,” released on Nice Life/Atlantic Records, spends a third week atop the [tally courtesy of] 31,000 [downloads] sold in the week ending Sept. 12, according to Nielsen Music…110.8 million audience impressions in the week ending Sept. 15…29.2 million U.S. streams in the week ending Sept. 12.’

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.’  Now, the tune – found aboard her major label debut, ‘Cuz I Love You’ – is something great itself.

As we extend our congratz to the burgeoning diva, be sure to check back later this week to find out who joins her in the top 25 on our ‘TGJ Chart Check.’

      • Clarkson September 16, 2019

        She also released a remix of truth hurts feat da baby
        She discounted this song on al platforms.

      • Oh plz September 16, 2019

        @Clarkson: STFU hater. You belong at the bottom like Camilla’s latest efforts

      • Gworl Bye September 16, 2019

        @ Barb correct, her being fat af is her gimmick.

      • BadgalRiri September 16, 2019

        Damn Lizzo you didn’t even give a chance to Normani to chart and win lmfao!!!!

        Lizzo is snatching Normani wig and sat on her career and chike her entirely

        Motivation at #107 on itunes
        Truth hurts at #1 on itunes

        See Lizzo didnt need 100 tweets and free shoutouts from celebrities
        No dancing aggressively

        Congrats Lizzo

      • Haterz Gon‘ Hate September 17, 2019

        How can being fat be a gimmick when she was not slim before and didn’t decide to get fat to chase clout and fame???? It’s the same as ho‘s who didn’t have b*** implants before they were famous and then they did and came up. Now THAT is a gimmick. ☝🏾

    • Dc September 16, 2019

      Took Lizzo 2 years but ok 😂😂😂😂

      • Haterz Gon‘ Hate September 17, 2019

        Right – like Lizzo deserves this but let’s not act like she release her debut single 2 months ago and is now no.1. Girl was grindin‘ for 2 years to get to this point. Normani needs time to grow and breathe

  2. Meme September 16, 2019

    Finally we have another black girl at the top of the charts. It’s only been Rihanna for so long, it’s rihfreshing more black girls doing it.

    • JaZzy Da Bi Asian TGJ STAFF SUPPORT #TROLLminators September 16, 2019

      Cardi is as black as Rihanna, they are the same. Two women who’s ancestors from Africa were dropped off on two Caribbean Islands. Dominican Republic and Barbados. So actually Cardi has been the only one at the top because it’s been almost 4 years since Rihanna has had a top hit.

      • Gworl Bye September 16, 2019

        Sit down. Cardi is not black, she doesn’t even claim to be black, so she’s NOT. only her dumb ass fans are trying to claim her.

      • Meme September 16, 2019

        Girl bye. Rihanna been the only one for a long time. I forgot about Cardi. Rihanna just haven’t released music in for 4yrs.

      • JaZzy Da Bi Asian TGJ STAFF SUPPORT #TROLLminators September 16, 2019

        @Gworl I’m no fan of cardi, I’m just not an idiot to the history of chattel slave trade and how Africans were distributed throughout the caribbean. Cardi has said she’s black before a few of times. Not everybody walks around talking about their melanin is poppin, black girl magic etc etc… actually most ppl don’t. You’re just a “woke” social media sheep with cheap bundles and a bad installation- not my problem

    • JaZzy Da Bi Asian TGJ STAFF SUPPORT #TROLLminators September 16, 2019

      @meme exactly so she been gone from the spot for almost half a decade. Cardi has been the only black/minority woman at the top for the last few years.

  3. Clarkson September 16, 2019

    Camila cabello
    Seniorita- 2 (peaked at number 1)
    Liar – 56 (debut)
    Shameless- 60 (debut)

    The staying power of seniorita.

    Very strong debuts .
    First day of sales and streams weren’t counted for liar and shameless.

    Hurricane malone also. A streaming giant like post malone releasing an album impacted the performance of the debuts

    No hype, no free promo from 100 different celebrities on Instagram and Twitter, no shout outs, no big award show performance, Nothing

    This songs will rise next week Post malone songs will fall out next week.

    Havana debuted at number 99 but it peaked at number one. Liar is a bonafide hit. Its not a race but a marathon.

    Where is motivation on the charts? After all the hype, free promo from 100 different celebrities on Instagram and Twitter, after performing this song at the vmas, 😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩

    • Nique Nique September 16, 2019

      Why do you mention that ogre on every post?

      • Gworl Bye September 16, 2019

        Cuz she’s mad that Normani debuted higher solo than camila did even after payola and a fake relationship lol.

    • Gworl Bye September 16, 2019

      So she flopped 2 singles even after featuring on 2 number one singles? Lol keep clinging to Normani, Motivation still charted higher in it’s THIRD week than either of Camila’s failed solo singles lol 😂.

      • Clarkson September 16, 2019

        Normani motivation number 61, fell ten spots. Lol after all the hype and free promo from 100 different celebrities on Instagram and Twitter.

        After all the shout outs from Rihanna, Kelly clarkson etc, she still flopped

        Let’s not forget she performed this song on a huge platform (the vma’s stage). 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

        Camila is going to rise next week after post malone singles fall off.

  4. Shayla Queen September 16, 2019

    Beyoncé could NEVER (anymore)

  5. Lizzoh September 16, 2019

    Coming for cardi’s cheap lakefront.

    • Lizzoh September 16, 2019

      *lacefront

  6. The Real Princess Jasmine September 16, 2019

    Atlantic Records and Payola no one ☝🏾 mention Lizzo 3 years from now Saweetie

    • Shayla Queen September 16, 2019

      Remember when Nicki was #1? Oh that’s right, after more than 100 entries on the Hot 100 she still didn’t get one. Pity. That’s why she’s reduced herself to nothing but a bitter old has-been h**.

      • Clocked you September 16, 2019

        If streaming counted like it does now I’m sure she would had a number one. Oh well you can’t take her legacy from her. People are weird these days success is only if you have a number 1 and a Grammy. Like Nicki didn’t work her way up to the top. Is she was so powerful like y’all say she’d have that number 1 right ?

      • Shayla Queen September 16, 2019

        You mean if people could listen to that sh|t for free then she would have had a #1? How did Megatron do? Even with being able to steam that sh|t for free, she still can’t sustain herself on the charts or get that #1. Try again.

  7. And I … Oop! September 16, 2019

    Lizzo should do a jingle for Popeye’s when they re-release the spicy chicken sandwich.

  8. High Price September 16, 2019

    Go lizzo! She breaking boundaries and setting trends! Get it missy!

  9. BadgalRiri September 16, 2019

    Damn Lizzo you didn’t even give a chance to Normani to chart and win lmfao!!!!

    Lizzo is snatching Normani wig and sat on her career and chike her entirely

    Motivation at #107 on itunes
    Truth Hrits at #1 on itunes

    See Lizzo didnt need 100 tweets and free shoutouts from celebrities
    No dancing aggressively

    Congrats Lizzo

    • Gworl Bye September 16, 2019

      No she just needed to exploit her weight so that liberals and their bleeding hearts would feel sorry for her after struggling for two years.

      Normani charted without all of that lol, so lets see where fat ass will be next year when liberal America gets over their obsession with fat chicks.

      • JaZzy Da Bi Asian TGJ STAFF SUPPORT #TROLLminators September 16, 2019

        Adele, Notorious BIG, Luther Vandross, Queen Latifah, Megan Trainor, Jill Scott, Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Beth Ditto… just a few plus sized musicians throughout history that were successful. I mean I know your cheap bundles are poorly installed but it can’t be warping your brain THAT much. Big music celebrities have been around forever, girl.

    • JaZzy Da Bi Asian TGJ STAFF SUPPORT #TROLLminators September 16, 2019

      Clarkson take your meds, girl.

    • NORMANI September 17, 2019

      STFU, you are jealous because Normani has the looks and body that lizzo dont have

  10. Jaquan September 16, 2019

    shes also the first overweight black girl to top the charts in a while too

  11. Yolanda September 16, 2019

    Lizzo has mad talent, but she gets no respect for her so-called confidence game until she shows the hair that grows from her scalp (especially when she’s not on stage). She did an interview where she stripped down to her underwear and she told the interviewer that taking off her wig was the hardest part. So…stop playing the…I love me game. Show the hair that grows from your scalp when you are around the house, going to the store, etc. Anyways, congratulations.

    • JaZzy Da Bi Asian TGJ STAFF SUPPORT #TROLLminators September 16, 2019

      You can say “I love me” and still be in progress of full self acceptance. You obviously are not in the road to positivity

      • Yolanda September 16, 2019

        Go to bed.

  12. Sweetnothings78 September 17, 2019

    She is absolutely terrible to listen to. Please disappear off the music scene.

  13. NORMANI September 17, 2019

    Lmfao!!!!
    Lizzo discounted her single for 0.69 cents and needed to exploit her weight so that people felt sorry for her and buy her album and songs.

    Normani is prettier and sexier than Lizzo and she charted without all of that lol, so lets see where her fat ass will be next year when Meghan Trainor comes back.

    Motivation should have been number one but Lizzo wants all the spotlight on her

    And then this other girl Camila is also releasing singles same time as Normani releasing motivation which stunted its chance to rise on the charts

    Same thing when beyonce did it to Kelly
