    There's a debate about the truth behind Lizzo's "Truth Hurts."

    Lizzo's No. 1 hit features a signature line which originated from a 2017 tweet by singer Mina Lioness and was turned into a popular meme, which was then used in Lizzo's song "Healthy."

    “I just took a DNA test / turns out I’m 100 percent that b----," Lizzo sings. 

    The songwriting brothers Justin and Jeremiah Raisen, who worked on "Healthy," claim say they also deserve writing credit on "Truth Hurts" since the song borrows from "Healthy," which they co-wrote.
