Hillary Clinton apparently listens to Lizzo.

On Tuesday (Aug. 20), Lizzo tweeted a clip from a 2016 Democratic presidential debate. Clinton was the only woman standing amongst the group of presidential candidates in the video, who were preparing for the American National Anthem. An announcer can be heard in the clip saying, “Please, rise for our national anthem.” Following that, Lizzo’s hit single “Truth Hurts” begins playing.

Clinton replied to Lizzo on twitter and said, “I just took a DNA test, turns out…,” which is part of lyrics from the rapper and singer’s single, which is all about men being great “til’ they gotta be great.”

It’s currently unclear who actually created the clip that Lizzo shared, but it brings about questions whether or not this is an endorsement of Clinton from Lizzo or just simply a clip that’s helping to continue to push Lizzo’s song “Truth Hurts.”

Either way, the Twitter reactions are everything. Take a look at some of them below.
