Lizzo's best-selling single "Truth Hurts" spent six weeks at No. 1. Lizzo now drops to No. 2 on the Hot 100 chart.

"Highest" is the 28-year-old mumble rapper's second #1 hit in his short career. The track was released as a standalone single.

"Highest" was featured in Kylie Jenner's Kybrow's makeup commercial in April. Fans accused Scott and Jenner of breaking up to boost interest in Scott's single. Apparently the stunt worked.

Scott and Jenner share 20-month-old daughter Stormi.

In a recent interview Scott said he's taking his time recording his new album.

"I'm taking my time to come up with the next album," Scott told Billboard. "I'm always down to drop music and serve some packs to the fans. It's time for the fans to eat."

Lizzo, a 31-year-old Pisces, teamed up with pop singer Justin Timberlake to record a new tune.

In August, the 38-year-old Aquarius shared a video that showed him and Lizzo in the studio making music together.

"I think she thought I was lying, but we got in and we got a couple of ideas," Timberlake told ET.

"I'm not going to tell you too much about what we did together in the studio. If she wants to tell you she can, but it's flames. It is so good. I am so excited about it."
