Lizzo anthem "About Damn Time" hits #1
Her music is fun, inspiring, and powerful, her lyrics thoughtful and on-point. She is very open about herself, her body image issues, her life struggles and triumphs. Her personality shines through every word she sings and every photo she posts. Lizzo is a true babe.
This week, after a three-month climb, “About Damn Time” becomes Lizzo’s second song to hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. The smash hit is a follow up success to “Truth Hurts”another hit in 2019. “About Damn Time” knocks off Harry Styles’s “As It Was,” which falls to No. 2 after a 10-week run at the top. Also on the singles chart, Kate Bush’s 37-year-old “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God),” still riding a new wave of popularity from its appearance in the Netflix show “Stranger Things,” has reached a high of No. 3.
Lizzo is on fire and in high demand. The popularity of “About Damn Time,” however, wasn’t enough to send Lizzo’s new LP, “Special,” to the top of the album chart.
That position is still held by Bad Bunny’s “Un Verano Sin Ti,” which notches its fourth time in a row at No. 1, and sixth time overall since its release in May. In hitting #1,
‘About Damn Time’ dethrones Harry Styles’ ‘As It Was’ – which reigned for 10 weeks. Lizzo’s latest hit managed the feat with the following US numbers this week:
14.3 million streams
88.2 million radio airplay
Bold, fearlessa nd energetic, Lizzo has won fans with a string of supercatchy, genre-swerving pop singles. She can serve up Instagram-caption-worthy self-love (“Good as Hell”) as easily as she does fast-rapping twerk anthems.
In June 2020, Lizzo went vegan. The musician, known for her iconic flute solos during her performances, recently headed to TikTok to rave about her vegan cheesy Takis creation.
