Lizzo is ready to take over Iggy Azalea's reign on the charts. The rapper, whose "Truth Hurts" is No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a fifth week, took to Twitter to encourage her fans to continue streaming the song and beat Azalea's record from 2014's "Fancy."    

"YALL... IF WE KEEP THIS UP FOR 2 MORE WEEKS... TRUTH HURTS COULD BE THE LONGEST FEMALE RAP #1 OF ALL TIME..... RIGHT NOW ITS ‘FANCY," she wrote, followed up with another tweet shouting out Charli XCX, who is featured on the song, but did not mention Azalea, who's the lead artist on the track.   

In a since deleted tweet, Azalea indirectly responded to the potential shade by writing, "I could have SWORN I was the one rapping that song but okay..." She later clarified the tweet, noting that she's "down to be petty in the name of a laugh or two but in all seriousness I’m just trolling and laughing at all the funny replies," before adding that the whole thing is "not serious; at least not for me."  

Azalea took her trolling to the next level by launching a hilarious campaign to get Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's collab, "Senorita," back on the Hot 100 top spot (it's currently at No. 2) to break Lizzo's holding atop the chart. "Stream señorita for clear skin," she wrote, linking the music video and following up by retweeting a number of memes. She even switched her profile photo to one of the steamy couple and changed her Twitter name to "IGGY AZALEA stream senorita."
