Lizzo‘s “Truth Hurts” has been this summer’s biggest surprise hit. The track, which was released back in 2017, has made a major radio resurgence. “Truth Hurts” currently sits at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 (higher than “Old Town Road“), and has been steadily climbing higher all summer.
As Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish proved, a great remix of a great song is the key to chart success this summer. “Truth Hurts” is already a classic, but a new remix featuring Dababy gives the song a 2019 update.
DaBaby’s verse is confident and fun, as he raps as the man Lizzo is so frustrated with in the song. He expresses his own self-assuredness, riffing on Lizzo’s famous lyrics (“I just took a DNA test / And it told me I’m the realest pretty chocolate n—a”) and explaining his side of the story.
Lizzo’s album Cuz I Love You was released this April. DaBaby, one of this year’s XXL Freshmen, released his debut studio album Baby On Baby back in March. DaBaby’s song “Suge” was a runaway hit this year, climbing all the way up to No. 7 on the Hot 100.
