Lizzo is the latest guest on NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series. The multitalented star performed a medley of hits from her major-label debut LP Cuz I Love You that dropped in April. You can watch the spectacular performance above.
The 31-year-old artist sat down for a recent People Magazine interview and revealed how she almost called it quits because her 2017 record “Truth Hurts” didn’t initially take off.
“The day I released ‘Truth Hurts’ was probably one of the darkest days I’ve had ever in my career,” she said. “I remember thinking, ‘If I quit music now, nobody would notice. This is my best song ever, and nobody cares.’”
She continued: “I was like, ‘Fuck it, I’m done.’ And a lot of people rallied; my producer, my publicist and my family, they were like, ‘Just keep going because this is the darkest before the dawn.’” Two years later, “Truth Hurts” climbed all the up to the No. 6 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
