Once again Lizzo has blended various genres for an effortlessly perfect pop song that celebrates self-love. With elements of funk and soul, the track has a distinctly retro vibe—spurred on by its ’80s-inflected music video. Directed by Quinn Wilson, the clip pays homage to everything from the Soul Glo commercials in Coming to America to workout tapes, talk shows and infomercials.
Minneapolis-based Lizzo’s newest track “Truth Hurts” just dropped, and as expected it’s a banger chock-full of attitude. Opening with the line, “I just took a DNA test turns out I’m 100 percent that bitch,” this song is badass. The music industry is all the better for having Lizzo as part of it.
