Why Her Name Might Bring Back Memory...With TV One's "R&B Divas" giving veteran female singers a reality television opportunity and a push back into the limelight, will Truth Hurts pop up again? Remember her? No? Before Dr. Dre signed Marsha Ambrosius as a songstress for Aftermath, Truth Hurts signed with the musical genius for an album and the hit single "Addictive." The St. Louis songstress was ahead of the pack singing over Hindi sample – Thoda Resham Lagta Hai, well before Jay-Z jumped on Panjabi MC's "Beware of the Boys." Once Truth's single stopped spinning, her name in music slowly evaporated.

Currently, Truth is active on Twitter, ensuring fans her third album will be ready. If the year ends without a new project, it will equal a decade since we last heard an album from Truth Hurts.

Though Truth Hurts is usually linked with Hip Hop or R&B, she branched out of those genres to collaborate with Red Hot Chili Peppers’ guitarist John Frusciante. She performed the vocals for his independent solo project, Letur-Lefr.

In 2011, Truth Hurts reaffirmed her brand in a photo shoot with Penthouse Europe, not to be confused with Penthouse.

After a two year break, Truth Hurts moved from Dr. Dre’s label for Raphael Saadiq’s Pookie Entertainment to release her sophomore album Ready Now. The independent record reached No.173 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Truth enlisted an all-star squad of producers including Timbaland, Hi-Tek, DJ Quik, and R. Kelly on a relationship themed album that covered love apex and pitfalls. The sales numbers expected due to the enormous buzz of the single “Addictive” were never realized because of a lawsuit over the use of the Hindi sample on “Addictive.” The album was pulled off retail shelves; it never went back on sale because Truth left the record label.
