Rap siren Iggy Azalea made chart history yesterday joining The Beatles as the only two acts to have ever hit the number 1 and 2 spots simultaneously with their first two Billboard Hot 100 hits in the US.
Iggy’s single ‘Fancy feat Charli XCX’ hit number 1 in the Hot 100 chart yesterday while Ariana Grande’s single ‘Problem feat Iggy Azalea’ moved into number 2 making it the biggest selling debut single of the year currently at number 1 on the iTunes chart in 57 countries
Iggy has also rewritten female rap history with ‘Fancy’ being the second song by a solo lead female rap artist to have topped the Hot 100 Chart since Lauryn Hill in 1990 with ‘Doo Wop (That Thing)’.
‘Fancy’ has sold nearly 2 million copies globally, is the most streamed track ever on US Spotify and has soared to #1 in the Official charts in the US, Canada, New Zealand, top 5 in the UK and top 10 in Australia.
