Lizzo has created some of the most popular and catchy songs over the last few years. The Detroit rapper and singer released her first studio album in 2013. But, it was not until 2019 that Lizzo found mainstream success with her album "Cuz I Love You". Since 2019, Lizzo's star status has only grown, as she was nominated for eight Grammy's at the 62nd Annual Grammy awards, and continues to inspire the masses with her body positive lyrics.

The peak date for the song's streaming numbers was on May 13, 2022. "About Damn Time" went viral on the multimedia app TikTok, as there was a signature dance to the song. This significantly boosted the song's streaming numbers and is most likely what led to it being Lizzo's top song on Spotify. "About Damn Time" also won a Grammy at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards for Record of the Year, which made Lizzo the first female rapper to win said award. "About Damn Time" currently has 604,386,237 streams on Spotify and peaked at number six on United States Spotify charts. Also, it peaked at number nine on Global Spotify charts.
Lizzo's second most streamed song is "Truth Hurts", which was released in 2017. But, it ended up being a viral sleeper hit, as it did not truly blow up in 2019.
