    Lizzo Just Hit No. 1 With Her Single "Truth Hurts" And Cardi B Congratulated The Queen On Twitter

    Lizzo is a freakin' star and y'all are gonna learn TODAY! JK, I know you already know.

    A lot of people in the music industry believe that you can't have two successful women at the same time, and that women won't support each other. Well, I'm here to say, "DAS A LIEEE, BOO."

    If you need an example, here's one: Cardi B took to Twitter to congratulate Lizzo on her first No. 1 song, "Truth Hurts," hitting the Billboard Hot 100 chart. And to see a Queen shouting out the wins of another Queen is something we ALL need to take notes on.

    The fact that Lizzo a couple months ago felt underestimated and now she have a #1!!!!BITCH! take that!take that ! Makes me emotional 😭 It’s the best feeling in the world.

    Lizzo also posted on her own channel, saying that this win was for "anybody who ever felt like they voice wasn't heard," and y'all, I actually got emotional reading this.

    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 🌈☔️

    What makes this tweet really special is that Lizzo has torn down so many boundaries and standards of what people believe a rapper should look like. She's broken that mold with her unconventional quirkiness and undeniable talent: Inadvertently, Lizzo is showing fat and body-positive women that they are also dope as hell and beautiful.

    She told Time back in April, "I have to be that person because I don’t see that person. Because of who I am, my story happens to have a message to it. The space I’m occupying isn’t just for me. It’s for all the big black girls in the future who just want to be seen.

    The song was first released in 2017, but has undoubtedly shot up in success over the past year. For those of us who have been Lizzo fans for years, all we can say is, "BOUT TIME Y'ALL CAUGHT UP!"

    I'd like to also point out that Lizzo is the first black woman to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this year. SET THE STANDARD, QUEEN.

    The Bardi Gang and Lizzbians want a collab, pronto:

    And people are proud of this moment that we knew would happen:

    took almost 2 years for this tweet to be correct, but it finally happened! Congrats @Lizzo on “Truth Hurts” going #1! 🙌🏾 🙏🏾 https://t.co/LRYOM0ALx2

    All we needed was that confirmation that she is, in fact, 100% THAT BITCH:

    She did it!!! Lizzo has the #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100! She’s 100% a chart-topper!! Congrats, that bitch!

    Lizzo, we are SO proud of you and the barriers you are breaking, and we are so happy to see other queens cheering you on! Werk, baby!
