Lizzo rides the wave that is the mega-success of her “Truth Hurts” single (No. 5 this week on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart) with a performance on “Tiny Desk,” an NPR series hosted by Tom Boilen that’s known for its minimalist versions of songs that put the artist front and center.
Wearing a glamorous updo and clad in an off-the-shoulder orange sweatshirt dress, the singer/rapper wowed the crowd with performances of “Cuz I Love You,” “Truth Hurts” and “Juice.”
Writing about the performance, NPR wrote, “She literally needed no introduction; one of us usually says a few words and gets the crowd to applaud for the start of the performance, but Lizzo was master of ceremonies from the second she walked in. Naturally, she needed all of two seconds to blow everyone’s hair back once more.”
