(AllHipHop News) Lizzo rules over the Hot 100 once again with “Truth Hurts.” The single has led the Billboard chart for four straight weeks.
“Truth Hurts” is now the longest-running Number One record by a female rapper of all time. Lizzo passed her fellow Atlantic recording artist Cardi B, whose 9x-time platinum “Bodak Yellow” topped the Hot 100 for three weeks in 2017.
Only three female rappers have hit the peak of the Hot 100 as a solo artist. Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)" reigned for two weeks in 1998. Just six women connected to Hip Hop culture - Lizzo, Cardi, Lauryn, Lil Kim, Shawnna, and Iggy Azalea - have a Number One in their respective discographies.
"'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 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 b*tch to ur destiny,” tweeted Lizzo.
