Lizzo Surprises Students That Went Viral For Their “Truth Hurts” Remix


With her feel good music and energetic vibes it is no surprise that a 2nd grade teacher from Pittsburg would re create one of her more popular songs and make it into a viral academic sensation! Even though it was released a few years back “Truth Hurts” dominated the charts in 2019 becoming one of the most played songs of the year. Dorothy Mallari, teacher at Los Medanos elementary, saw the perfect opportunity to get an already popular song and remix it to encourage her second grade class, get them hyped up about learning and sing proudly about being “100% that smart”!!!

Let’s be great ‘cuz I know we are great.
I just took an E.L.A. test, turns out I’m 100% that smart,
Even when I’m feelin’ lazy.
Yea, I got math problems, that’s the student in me.
Buzz buzz then I solve them, that’s the worker (bee) in me.
You wanna have a good friend who’s committed,
Help you with your homework, just a little.
You know I’ll hold you down, because you got my back.
And that’s the sound of the yellow and black!
Let’s be great ‘cuz I know we are great.
Let’s hurry, we don’t wanna be late.
Choose a crate or a wobbly chair.
Let’s take turns so we know it is fair.
In this class you’ll never catch us fighting.
Time’s up, we need to start our writing.
Smart spots makes learning more exciting.

It didn’t take long for our Poptopia Artist Lizzo to take notice of the viral video of the second graders dancing and singing to the new remix!

A few days later Lizzo suprised the second graders with a  little message! In the video she tells the class “I saw the wonderful video that y’all made. Your teacher is very cool. I want to thank you so much for supporting me, and I want to let you know that you are 100 percent the future! You’re so bright and so beautiful and so talented…so keep it up and I hope to see y’all one day! I want to drop in on y’all class, so hopefully we can make that happen, but in the meantime, stay bright!”

Can’t wait to see her visit Los Medanos Elementary….who knows..maybe she will make a quick stop before our Poptopia show!!
