Iggy Azalea joins The Beatles in US chart records

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.
