"Truth Hurts" is a song released by American singer and rapper Lizzo. It was originally released on September 19, 2017, by Nice Life Recording Company and Atlantic Records, but then re-released as a radio single in 2019. It was written by Lizzo, Jesse Saint John, Steven Cheung (better known as Tele), and Ricky Reed, the latter two having co-produced the track. Lioness, a singer based in London, was credited as a co-writer of the song on October 23, 2019.

Though it did not chart at the time of its release, it later became a viral sleeper hit in 2019 after gaining popularity on the TikTok video sharing app and being used on the Netflix movie Someone Great. The song was included as a bonus track on the deluxe version of Lizzo's third studio album "Cuz I Love You" and reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Lizzo's first song to do so. The song's popularity was also bolstered by its appearance in the Netflix film Someone Great (2019). The accompanying music video has amassed more than 150 million views on YouTube. Despite being released in 2017, the song was eligible for the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards in 2019, being nominated for three awards, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year. "Truth Hurts" has regained airplay on both The Nova Network & The Hit Network plus Grant CHR Broadcasters & the Ace Radio Network. "Truth Hurts" moves from #84 to #49, making a Jump of 35 places on The Hot 100, which makes "Truth Hurts", This Week's
Power Hit.

Influenced by Houston rap, gospel soul, and experimentalists like ANOHNI and Missy Elliott, Lizzo is a musical acrobat. The singer-rapper writes songs that, in equal measure, balance her unique sonic interests and lyrics that tackle womanhood and identity. Her songs are as fun as they are critical—and her latest track, “Truth Hurts,” is one of the smartest yet.

“Why men great ‘til they gotta be great?” Lizzo ponders at the start, but “Truth Hurts” is hardly a pity party. Instead, she turns inward with self-affirmation and bawdy sophistication: “I just took a DNA test/Turns out I’m 100 percent that bitch/Even when I'm crying, crazy.” Anchored by a glittering piano loop, her flamboyant boasts and powerhouse vocals land precisely; her comedic flair and self-awareness is crystallized in the track’s video, in which she leaves her groom at the altar after realizing no one but her is worthy of Lizzo’s love and gifts. There’s a relatable audacity to “Truth Hurts,” whether you’ve also ditched a relationship via text or skipped out on your own wedding, and it’s in these sobering moments of truth where Lizzo’s charisma wins us over and sets her apart.

"Rare" is a song by American singer Selena Gomez from her third studio album of the same name (2020). It was released on alongside with the album on January 10, 2020 as the third single from it. The track was written by Gomez, Madison Love, Brett McLaughlin and producers Nolan Lambroza and Simon Says."Rare" is This Week's Hot Debut entering the Hot 100 at #29.

Rare is the first album pop star Selena Gomez has released since her public battle with lupus, which left her out of the spotlight for several years. Her 2015 album, Revival, featured a collection of impressive hits like “Same Old Love” and “Good for You”, which finally helped Gomez gain recognition beyond her Disney Channel star status.

The highly anticipated "Rare" starts out the same way Revival did: a title track that acts as a quiet but impactful self-love anthem, where Gomez realizes her worth through the use of minimal drum kicks and breathy vocals. Much of Rare reflects on lost relationships — both romantic ones, like on the emotional lead single “Lose You to Love Me”, and failed friendships, like “People You Know”, which features an infectious chorus about growing apart.

Gomez’s return is filled with some great pop music, but falls short of what we suspect she’s capable of. She sticks to similar themes as she did on Revival, instead of exploring different sounds as she did with 2018 single “Back to You” and 2017’s “Bad Liar” (which are included on Rare’s deluxe edition). Still, Rare is made up of near pop perfection: catchy songs with fun hooks and dance-y tracks, all with emotionally charged, relatable lyrics that keep her dedicated fanbase coming back.
