As Lizzo’s star continues to rise, the Detroit-born artist has now broken a big Billboard record. According to a tweet from the outlet, “Truth Hurts” has become the longest-reigning No. 1 single performed by a female rapper without any features in the chart’s history.
“Truth Hurts” surpasses Cardi B’s three-week reign with “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” in October 2017 and Lauryn Hill’s two-week triumph in 1998 with “Doo Wop [That Thing].”
Lizzo celebrated the milestone via Instagam on Monday (September 23).
“Truth Hurts is officially the longest solo female rap #1 in history,” she wrote. “I fell in love with music when I was 9 years old… I had no idea our love affair would go this far. Good to know it was all worth it. Don’t run away from what your heart wants. Follow that bitch to ur destiny.”

Truth Hurts is officially the longest solo female rap #1 in history. I fell in love with music when I was 9 years old… I know it’s cliche but music was literally my boyfriend. I had no idea our love affair would take me this far. If this lil Lizzo only knew all that she would accomplish when she picked up that flute, or wrote songs in her room, or forced her friends to make girlbands.. it’s just so humbling to know it was all worth it. Don’t run away from what your heart wants. Follow that bitch to your destiny.
“Truth Hurts” has been in the chart’s coveted spot for the past four weeks. Originally released in 2017, the song was also included on the deluxe version of Cuz I Love You, Lizzo’s third studio album. It’s currently certified 2x-platinum by the RIAA.

The video for the original version has already amassed over 110 million YouTube views.
