Lizzo Shares Success With Fans After Landing Her First No. 1 On The #Hot100 With 'Truth Hurts'

Lizzo is celebrating her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Namely, she's taking to Twitter to spread the joy with her fans, or her "Lizzbians."

According to Billboard, Lizzo raised her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with her song "Truth Hurts," after she performed it with her song "Good As Hell" on the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on August 26.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday—which she mostly spaced an hour apart—Lizzo gushed over "Truth Hurts," its leading position on the Hot 100 chart and the role her loyal fanbase played in getting it there roughly one year after its initial release. Writing in all capital letters, the artist suggested that the song's top spot "IS A W FOR ALL OF US. ANYBODY WHO EVER FELT LIKE THEY VOICE WASN'T HEARD."

Her first was a retweet from September 26, 2017—the day after the song's music video was released—that apologized to followers because "imma promote Truth Hurts all day cus it's the best video I've ever made & im proud of it."

In the retweet, she commented: "...AND I STILL AM."

An hour later, the 31-year-old singer and rapper shared a Billboard announcement that Lizzo landed her first No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart with "Truth Hurts," and said, "WE DID IT LIZZBIANS."

Another hour later, she said that she was honored to be one of six female rappers who have reached the Hot 100 chart. According to Billboard Charts, the singer trails Ms. Lauryn Hill, Lil' Kim, Shawnna, Iggy Azalea and Cardi B.

More directly addressing her fans, she also tweeted: "WE'RE NUMBER 1. 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 3 MUCH. LIZZBIANS UNITE."

She added: "S/O @lizzobr @LizzoDaily and all the other Lizzbian pages that ride for me!!!"

"Truth Hurts" also trended on Twitter after the Billboard report was released on Tuesday, and some fellow celebrities took to the platform to rejoice in the news.

"The fact that Lizzo a couple months ago felt underestimated and now she have a #1!!!!BITCH! take that!take that ! Makes me emotional," tweeted Cardi B. "It's the best feeling in the world.

Singer Dawn Richard commented: "You deserve it mama."

This is the third consecutive week that an artist has earned their first career No. 1, according to a Tuesday tweet by Billboard Charts. Lizzo follows Billie Eilish and Shawn Mendes. "Truth Hurts" also marks 2019's seventh song by a woman to hit No. 1—the most in a year since 2014—according to the Billboard Charts on Twitter.

Lizzo—born Melissa Viviane Jefferson and hailing from Detroit—originally released the song in September 2017. However, Billboard pointed out, the track "received renewed attention" after being featured in the Netflix original film Someone Great, released this past April. The track was then added to the artist's 2019 LP Cuz I Love You, which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 the following month.
