Lizzo back on top of U.S. charts to tie rap record


Lizzo has returned to the top of the U.S. pop charts to tie the longest run at number one for a rap track by a female.

The hitmaker feared she had missed her chance to tie Iggy Azalea’s seven-week record with Truth Hurts when the track was toppled by Travis Scott’s Highest in the Room last week, but it appears her summer hit has enjoyed a spike, taking it back to the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

Iggy Azalea first hit seven weeks at the top of the countdown with Fancy.

Cardi B and Lauryn Hill are the only other female rappers to spend multiple weeks at number one with one track.

Meanwhile, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s Senorita has rebounded to two on the Hot 100, while Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved returns to three. Post Malone’s Circles and Chris Brown’s No Guidance round out the top five.
