Lizzo Leaps To #1 On Billboard Hot 100 With ‘Truth Hurts’

Published: Tuesday 3rd Sep 2019 by Sam

Lizzo has done it!

Two years after initially releasing ‘Truth Hurts,’ the anthem has become her first ever #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

Details below…

This week saw the song climb #3-#1, crowning a 17 week journey on the tally to the top spot.

But the trek has, in truth, been much longer.

For, the song (which knocks Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’ ‘Senorita’ to #2) was initially released in 2017 as the 30-year-old hustled her way through the industry ranks.

It received revived interest after being featured in Netflix‘s ‘Someone Great’ movie and made its Hot 100 debut at #50 where it’s been climbing ever since.

So, what powered its push in this all-important week?

Well, armed with the momentum of a remix featuring Da Baby and high profile performance spots on the Today Show and the MTV VMAs, the song amassed 34.4 million US streams, 98.4 million radio impressions, and sold 53,000 digital downloads. All in the last tracking week.

The song’s unique trajectory no doubt comes as a colossal win for Lizzo (whose debut major label effort ‘Cuz I Love You’ opened at #6 in May). It also is a major coup for Atlantic Records, who in recent years have helped architect the breakout success of Cardi B too.

    Congrats Lizzo!!! So well deserved!

    Now almost every successful female rapper has a #1 EXCEPT Nicki! Ha!!

    • Jasmine??‍♀️David??‍♂️Sam??‍♂️& Rashad ??‍♂️#TROLLmineSlayers #DaBiAsianCrew #TROLLmineTheIntern September 3, 2019

      Lizzo isn’t a rapper, she’s an all out entertainer: singer, dancer, flute player, and rapper. Her album is more singing than anything.

      • Theman September 3, 2019

        For where pure sales are, Lizzo is doing good/great there too.

    • Ajm265 September 3, 2019

      Congrats Lizzo I love her! You need to grow up lol

      • Only facts September 3, 2019

      • FAF September 3, 2019

        And all they debut albums floped in pure sales unlike Nicki ..ha

        Congrats to lizzo y’all have Nicki to thank for streaming

      • only facts September 3, 2019

        Flopped in pure sales?? You sound dumb AF. That would be like Lil Kim saying in 2010 that Nicki Flopped in cassette sales. B***h, welcome to 2019 where streaming is king. You’re ill-equipped for this debate, hun.

    • Joaquin September 3, 2019

      You have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.
      I have been working with this for a month and have made over $2,000 already. let me know if you need more help.

  5. Only facts September 3, 2019

    • iamdiego September 4, 2019

  6. stormiscomimg September 3, 2019

    Taylor Swift jumped back to the TOP5!!!

  7. Daisy September 3, 2019

    Flopyonce could neva. Ha!

    • Bey Best September 3, 2019

      That’s BEYcause Beyonce topped that chart six times. YOU could neva.

      • Clarkson September 3, 2019

        5 times, we dont count the fraudulent ed Sheeran duet. That song was going number 1 with or without beyonce.

        Beyonce even made the song worse

  8. Clarkson September 3, 2019

    Damn Taylor swift you need to calm down rebounded back to number 4. This song may hit number 1.

    Congrats lizzo. She’s a one hit wonder. this song is successful because of the opening line “I just took a DNA test turns out I’m a 100 percent that b****”
    The craziest thing is she stole this line from a girl on Twitter. Even lizzo admits she saw the catch phrase online.
    The girl is about to sue lizzo. So much for originality

    • only facts September 3, 2019

      How is Lizzo a one hit wonder? LOL! You are so pressed! Are you mad because people are onto Camilla and beginning to cancel her after copying Lana Del Slay? You’re bitter. You know Camilla won’t last in the pop scene. After all these years….she still doesn’t look like a woman.

      • Clarkson September 3, 2019

        Camila wont last in the pop scene? Gurl she has 2 number 1’s, I call that lasting, that’s something u dont know cause ur a 1 minute man.

      • only facts September 3, 2019

        Girl, you see all of the pop girls pay Camilla absolute DUST! Nobody likes her! You’re insecure that she is underdeveloped (as a woman and an artist), and that the general public is onto her trick. Lana calling her out was only the beginning. The fact that you think Camilla will be anything close to an icon, or have any type of staying power? LOL! Two #1 hits? Yes, congrats to Young Thug and Shawn Mendes helping Camilla Cobweb Cabello get her two #1 hits! Cause we ALL know the songs she has without features are complete flops (see the rest of her album, OMG, Crying in the club).

        She’s over.

      • Clarkson September 3, 2019

        U are silly
        “Nobody likes her”

        Honey this is a game, u dont have to be liked, all u have to do is slay and that is what Camila is doing. Besides normani is liked and where did motivation debut, number 37. u sound childish, is this high school were u care about being liked? Lol grow up.

        Camila cant get a solo number 1

        This is the stupidest argument ever. Beyonce’s first 3 number 1’s were all features

        Crazy in love feat Jay z
        Baby boy feat Sean Paul
        Check on it fearing slim thug

        But did anybody try to discredit her? Beyonce only has 2 number 1’s that have no features. All her other number 1’s have features.

        Jay z has only 4 number 1’s and all are features.

        Pls stop hating. Crying in the club is certified platinum, OMG was a promotional single.

      • only facts September 3, 2019

        CLARKSON: You love to bring up Normani when NOBODY else does! It shows that 1) you and Camilla are threatened by Normani’s star power, and 2) you’re obsessed. NOBODY is thinking about Camilla!

        Crying in the club was Camilla’s DEBUT solo single and debuted at #47 with a video and a performance at the 2017 Billboard awards two days after its release.

        Motivation is Normani’s DEBUT solo single and debuted at #33 with ONLY the video in the first week of release.

        So, how is Motivation a flop? Please explain. PLEASE 🙂

      • Clarkson September 3, 2019

        Gurl u dont give up do

        If normani had star power she would have cracked the top 20 with her debut single motivation but she didn’t . Motivation is falling 20 something spots this week watch and see.

      • only facts September 3, 2019

        @Clarkson, you just said “If normani had star power she would have cracked the top 20 with her debut single motivation but she didn’t.” CAMILLA CABELLO DIDN’T CRACK THE TOP 20 WITH HER DEBUT SINGLE! LMAO! So are you admitting that Camilla doesn’t have star power? Motivation has already outpeaked Camilla’s debut solo single (Crying in the club).

        You need a 5150 evaluation.

    • only facts September 3, 2019

      Clarkson, it’s becoming abundantly clear that you have a problem with successful black females. You’re consistently only putting down black females, only to uplift Taylor Swift and Camilla. That is rather sad, especially since it’s 2019…and that behavior is very unbecoming.

      • Clarkson September 3, 2019

        Who and who have I put down?

        Lizzo is a one hit wonder. This is the only song she will be known for
        I state facts. Taylor swift is going number one with either u need to calm down or even lover

        Normani is a flop

        Camila has 2 number 1’s

        All these are facts.

      • only facts September 3, 2019

        Clarkson, you’ve put down Normani, Brandy, Beyoncé, Lizzo. Admit that you have some type of problem with successful black women. Everyone on this site knows and we all see you for the swine that you are, sir/ma’am.

  9. Daisy September 3, 2019

    Glad to see an overweight black woman getting love. Folks have grown tired of these fake assed fake breasted weave wearing stripper/ rappers. They want something new

    • Dc September 3, 2019

      Meanwhile cardi b album still on hot 200 billboard guess they not that tired 3 x platinum n counting ????

      • Daisy September 3, 2019

        She needs to enjoy it while it lasts because Lizzo is taking over

  10. Bey Best September 3, 2019

    Lizzo has great music and is a great entertainer. Well deserved!

  11. Lana Bey Fan September 3, 2019

    A well deserved and earned win! Not a billion remixes, no famous boyfriend, just grinding. I have nothing but respect for her! Congrats.

    • Clarkson September 3, 2019

      U are wrong
      Lizzo released a remix of truth hurts with da baby.
      She discounted this song on itunes.

      everybody promotes their songs in different ways.

      Lizzo stole the catch phrase “I just took a DNA test turns out I’m 100 percent that bìtch” from a girl on Twitter. Google it

      • only facts September 3, 2019

        Go read a book! Are you mad that everyone has a better team than Camilla nad NOBODY takes Camilla seriously except for you? Even this BLOG said that Camilla has a lot more to prove musically. Nobody see’s Camilla as…well, anything…except underdeveloped.

      • Clarkson September 3, 2019

        Camila has nothing to prove

        2 Grammy nominations
        2 number 1 songs
        1 billion streams
        Platinum debut album
        Debut album debuted at number one
        Opened the Grammy awards
        Has won 4 vmas including video of the year

        instead its normani that has alot to prove. Let’s see how many spots motivation fell this week after her over dancing poor vocals vma performance.
        Note: seniorita dropped only one spot. From number 1 to number 2.

      • only facts September 3, 2019

        You’re obsessed and threatened by Normani. YOU are always bringing her up! Bless your heart! I hope you get that 5150 evaluation you need.

      • Suge September 3, 2019

        So what? I saw that quote/meme everywhere. She should have gotten it copywritten or trademarked. Too bad!

  12. only facts September 3, 2019

    I see TGJ deleted my comment saying that every successful female rapper now has a #1 billboard hot 100 hit EXCEPT Nicki! HA! Pressed! How much is N.M. sending to filter out comments?

  13. I love big black c** September 3, 2019

    She is coming for Beyoncé & Rihanna. A new Big Queen is BORN. BOW DOWN haters!!!!!!!!

  14. only facts September 3, 2019


    • Clocked In September 3, 2019

      Damn dummy how many times you have to say it? We know that and Nicki knows that? What are you saying that’s different? She hadn’t had one in the 11yrs she been out …you’re obsessed and sad

      • only facts September 3, 2019

        I think you mean Nicki is obsessed with Cardi (just like she was obsessed with Lil Kim) and sad that she doesn’t have a #1.

        I think it’s HILARIOUS that Nicki and her fans are playing victim in 2019, but during 2009-2013 were bullying Lil Kim and calling her washed up and a has been. How does it feel b***h. THE TABLES HAVE TURNED!!! ALLLLLLLLL of these new female rappers are surpassing Nicki. Her career is STALLED!!! IGGY GOT A #1 FIVE YEARS AGO AND NICKI STILL HASN’T!??!! Put a fork in it Nicki. Hang it up FLAT SCREEN! OVER! Thank you for your services, Queef.

    • Just Sayin’ September 3, 2019

      Cant you just congraluate Lizzo with out mentioning that angry bird Nicki. This is why that bish still relevant. U troll her and her crazy barbz going to troll u. Congrats to Lizzo u work hard for that No 1 and did rely on a fake PR stunt to get it.

  15. Nicky September 3, 2019

    Hey Grape Juice Editors,

    It’s time to censor Clarkson posts like before. Poor thing is having multiple meltdowns.


    Congrats to Lizzo who has a #1 hit Without a feature! Not everyone can do that.

    • Clarkson September 3, 2019

      Lizzo is better than Jay z then. Cause Jay a has only 4 number 1’s and all 4 number 1’s are features. Dummy

      • only facts September 3, 2019

        @Clarkson, do you see how you sound? I hope you get that 5150 evaluation soon. I’m sending prayers and well wishes your way.

  16. Woah Vicky September 3, 2019

    Wow you need to calm down is at number 4. How comes its going back up?

    • Clarkson September 3, 2019

      She just released her album, so people are downloading and streaming it.

      Also she performed it at the vma’s, and u need to calm down won some awards including video of the year. It’s a good song, way better than ME.

  17. Fran Drescher is my Nanny September 3, 2019

    She plagiarized this song so I hope she pays up to the artist who she stole from and they reap the benefits of their works. I’m not here for anyone riding the coattails of someone else’s work.
