Much to the dismay of Iggy Azalea (click here to read why), Lizzo logs another frame atop the Hot 100 with her breakout hit, ‘Truth Hurts.’
Placing her that much closer to tying the all-time record for longest running #1 Rap single by a female (currently held by Azalea’s 2014 hit ‘Fancy’), Liz (born Melissa Jefferson) has yet another week of handsome streaming, digital downloads, and radio airplay to thank for the tune’s ongoing domination of the charts.
“‘Truth’ is #1 [with] 30,000 [digital downloads] sold…122 million [radio] audience impressions…and 27.8 million U.S. streams in the week ending Oct. 3…
“Truth,” released on Nice Life/Atlantic Records, doubles the record for the longest Hot 100 command for a rap No. 1 by a female artist unaccompanied by another act, having surpassed Cardi B’s three-week rule with “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” in October 2017. (One other rap No. 1 by a female artist and no accompanying acts has led the list: Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop [That Thing],” for two weeks in 1998.)
