Lizzo, Queen of the Charts

Lizzo and her fans are riding high this week after the singing flutist secured her second number one song on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. The song, About Damn Time, was released in April as the lead single for the album with the same title. It took 14 weeks to peak but could not have come at a better time as Lizzo also has the number two album in the country after releasing it earlier this month. She unseated Harry Styles' As it Was, which has spent 16 cumulative weeks on the chart. The last Lizzo track to reach the top of the charts was the 2019 hit Truth Hurts.
