Not only has Lizzo hit #1 on all the charts with her hit :Truth Hurts”. she is now nominated by the Soul Train Music Awards 2019 for 6 awards. That’s right 6 awards….. The Minnesota girl has hit it big and has been one of the biggest artist for 2019. Not only has she hit it big, her hit song “Truth Hurts” has become the longest running Hot 100 #1 single by a solo female rapper – beating Cardi B’s three week mark with “Bodak Yellow” in 2017.
One of the best thing about the Lizzo story is, she represents for the plus size women and has taken away all the stereotype of what beauty is. She is tearing down the doors and opening them up for plus-sized women all over the world. She is the new “Jenny on the Block” and is representing Minnesota and plus size women very well in 2019.
The Soul Train Awards has always celebrated the excellence of the Black Music culture and this year isn’t no deference….. Lizzo’s achievement of becoming #1 on the charts and becoming a world renown superstar in music industry is excellence for our culture.
Lizzo will join our Minnesota Legends Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, as they are set to receive their Lifetime Achievement Legend Awards at the Soul Train Awards 2019. As an Minnesota artist Lizzo’s achievements thus far have been nothing but outstanding. We as a Minnesota community have had a lot of success on the national music scene, with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Sounds Of Blackness, Mint Condition, Alexander O’Neal and chart toppiing R&B group NEXT, and now continuing to be well represented in the national music industry by our homegirl – Lizzo.
