Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” recently hit #1 at rhythmic radio.

This week, it will do the same on the Mediabase pop radio chart.

The new single received 11,302 pop spins during the first four days of the September 15-21 tracking period. Up 4% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “Truth Hurts” at #1 on the Mediabase building/real-time chart.

As it does not face an imminent threat from below, “Truth Hurts” looks like a safe bet to hold the spot through the close of tracking.

While Lizzo did chart earlier this year with “Juice,” “Truth Hurts” by far represents her radio breakthrough. It has also been a gamechanger for her overall career, enjoying the last several weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100.
