Billboard’s No. 1 song just got a K-pop refresh.
On her latest remix of “Truth Hurts,” Lizzo enlisted Korean boy group AB6IX to hop on the viral track.
The five-piece boy band added a new verse and revised chorus, even including some Lizzo-approved wordplay in their lyrics. One verse translates to “There’s no limit, everyday I’m on my way, yo / It’s OK I flip things around, it’s a K.O.”
The unexpected collab is rookie group AB6IX’s second single following “Breathe.” Both singles come ahead of their debut LP 6IXENSE due out October 7.
“Truth Hurts” just spent its fourth week atop the Billboard 100, which officially makes it the longest-running No. 1 track by a solo female rapper. The previous record was held by Cardi B’s breakout single “Bodak Yellow,” which topped the charts for three weeks in 2017.
Lizzo is currently on her North American tour, hot off her explosive MTV VMA performance last month. Watch her performance of “Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell” here.

Truth Hurts is officially the longest solo female rap #1 in history. I fell in love with music when I was 9 years old… I know it’s cliche but music was literally my boyfriend. I had no idea our love affair would take me this far. If this lil Lizzo only knew all that she would accomplish when she picked up that flute, or wrote songs in her room, or forced her friends to make girlbands.. it’s just so humbling to know it was all worth it. Don’t run away from what your heart wants. Follow that bitch to your destiny.
