Recently, producer and songwriter Justin Raisen recently took to Instagram to share a video comparing “Truth Hurts” to a song he allegedly wrote with Lizzo and others back in 2017 titled ‘Healthy.” Both of the songs feature the opening line “I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that b*tch,” and the melody is also the same.

Prior to that, Lizzo was previously accused of plagiarism in February of last year by British singer Mina Lioness for allegedly stealing the “100% that b*tch” lyric which Mina originally shared on Twitter in February 2017. The singer called out Lizzo on Twitter to which Lizzo replied saying she’d never seen the tweet and was actually “inspired” by a meme she saw on Instagram.
