Lizzo is the name on everyone’s lips – and a pretty firm fixture on their playlists too.
The Houston native has come to embody the age old reality that most “overnight successes” are indeed years in the making.
A hustler on the indie circuit for almost a decade, her eventual signing to a major label didn’t yield immediate fruit.
And while the viral-ness of catchy jam ‘Juice’ was initially hoped to become her big break, it was a song from three-years prior that would not only become her breakthrough – it became a Billboard #1. That track being ‘Truth Hurts.’
With the song currently enjoying its third week atop of the tally, the 31-year-old covers the latest issue of Billboard Magazine – which dubs as the Grammy 2020 preview edition.
Her appearance is notable given that despite its age and availability in the marketplace, ‘Truth’ is eligible in major Grammy categories – given that it was added on the deluxe edition of her major label debut ‘Cuz I Love You.’
