Lizzo's 'Truth Hurts' has finally reached number one - two years after its release
I'MA HIT YOU BACK IN A MINUTE.
Two years ago, Lizzo dropped the iconic, empowering, absolutely bangin' single that is 'Truth Hurts.'
It was a song about strength, a song about vigour, a song about not accepting texts when he could say it straight to your face and also getting your hair done because fuck all men, etc.
Basically, it was the song women around the world needed to reclaim their own independence - and tell some crusty ol' worthless boys to do one.
And now it's finally, finally, finally hit number one.
A solid 24 months after initially dropping the hit, Lizzo's 'Truth Hurts' has launched up the Billboard Top 100 and nestled itself firmly at the top spot.
Right above 'Old Town Road' and 'Bad Guy,' nonetheless.
Lizzo took to Twitter last night to share the news, to express her delight, and to unite all of her Lizzbians under one seriously impressive chart position.

"WE’RE NUMBER 1," she wrote. "THIS IS A W FOR ALL OF US. ANYBODY WHO EVER FELT LIKE THEY VOICE WASN’T HEARD."
"ANYBODY WHO FELT LIKE THEY WEREN’T GOOD ENOUGH. YOU ARE. WE ARE. CHAMPIONS. I LOVE YALL MUCH. LIZZBIANS UNITE."
Lizzo is the fifth black female artist to reach number one on the Billboard Top 100 this decade.
She joins Beyoncé, Cardi B, Janelle Monáe, and Rihanna at the top of the ranks.
