Iggy Azalea Makes Hot 100 History With "Fancy" & "Problem" Singles

(AllHipHop News) Australian performer Iggy Azalea made history this week when her first two charting singles reached the number 1 and number 2 spots on Billboard‘s Hot 100. This is the first time an act has achieved that feat in 50 years.

Azalea’s “Fancy” rose to the top spot, and she also claims the runner-up’s position as a featured guest on Ariana Grande’s “Problem.” This has not happened since 1964 when The Beatles held 1 and 2 with their initial singles “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “She Loves You.”

The rapper/model also joined three other very exclusive lists. Iggy became only the 15th act in the history of the Hot 100 to have a number one and number two single simultaneously. She is just the third woman to achieve that milestone (Mariah Carey, Ashanti), and she is only the fourth solo female rapper to ever have a number one single (Lauryn Hill, Lil Kim, Shawnna).

    Let the games begin. After her first Grammy, Rolling Stone will crown her “queen of all hip hop”. Even though neither them nor she will ever step foot in the South Bronx.

      She’ll be on XXL magazine and then they start calling her a pioneer.

    • RBG4Life

      We all know the machine pushes this sh!t. A couple of hot air claims here and there and the public becomes fooled into buying into a manufactured star. Next some type of ideal or product she is the face of will surface and the zombies they created will go drink from that well making whoever pulling the strings some more money. It is what it is until people understand the games being run in this world.

  • Brindle

      • PorchBoySlim

        Answer the question.

      • Brindle

        The answer is simple, so do you want me to type the answer because you don’t know it or do you know it and you’ve come across some “new found free thinking progressive ideal” that you want to debate?

      • reg joe

        Bait em, lol.

      • reg joe

        LOL. Don’t do it to em. I see where this is going. Its like this chick telling me that since I have a Master’s Degree, I probably act White, lol. Some folks, you just let them roll with it. It will take too much time to explain.

    • WeakSauce

      Always bringing up the race card! Why can’t you just give the woman her props????

      • Brindle

        The race card was played by her in every video. If she was talented, I’d give props, its a lot of talented white girls, she just not one. Great marketing scam though.

      • WeakSauce

        I’m sorry, I didn’t know that only certain things black people can do and not white…….

      • Brindle

        Stop being simple minded… nothing to do with music, it’s about doing impressions of a culture of woman. if she rapped with her Australian accent, COOL… if she was a white comedian making fun of social stereotypes, COOL… Duplicating black music because she’s got the talent, COOL… imitating black woman, NOT COOL… menstrel show’s have never been cool…

      • WeakSauce

        Imitating black woman? Says beyonce went blond, Nikki went blonde….. Shall I keep going…. So don’t give me that shit about imitating

      • ladynamor

        I see you are (pa) trolling under the bridge, nothing more. Ignore this man…..

      • WeakSauce

        Trolling? But you keep following me right? Says the girl that can’t spell lol

      • ladynamor

        Fool, you spelled haters, hatters on the Beyonce page and I can’t spell? I see you supporting this chick and hating Beyonce and I am the troll? You have to be kidding! YOU don’t believe what you are saying yourself. If you are black, you hate yourself, If you are white, You are doing what is expected. BTW, I NEVER EVER misspell a word, I have spell-check fool, and don’t even need that. DONT Fu(king try it.

      • WeakSauce

        This white chick article is about her been on the the billboards, getting recognized for the 1 and 2 spots. Beyonce article is way different, don’t double to line that never met! Stick to the subject. But either way have a good, I really have to get going. Good day

      • ladynamor

        This white chick article is about her been on the the billboards,
        getting recognized for the 1 and 2 spots. Beyonce article is way

        Beyonce article is way different, don’t double to line that never met! huh? And I can’t spell? You make no sense in more ways than one. I’m OUT!

      • reg joe

        However, hater is misspelled. Its not hatter unless you’re chasing a white rabbit. :) ijs

      • Brindle

        you don’t get it, and i can’t give it to you…. i feel sorry for your mother

      • reg joe

        Lets try this one on then. Have you ever heard of Rockwell? How about Quincy Jones? Rockwell is his sons earlier moniker. He used to sing with a British voice and talk with a British voice. He had never been to Britain a day in his life when he recorded that first song (Somebodies watching me) with Michael Jackson. O, btw, he is Black as well. Is he a sell out for recording with a fake British accent? This is the son of Quincy Jones now, QD3. The point is, this has happened over the years, sporadically. QD3 did this over 25 years ago! NOW you have a problem with it because the shoe is on the other foot? You can make a problem anywhere youd like. You can cause a problem anywhere youd like. Let folks do what they do.

      • Brindle

        LOL… this is a great example and an easy answer. 1st Rockwell was Berry Gordy’s son, not Quincy Jones… but to help your point, Tina Turners british accent is fake… So yes, they were selling out and if your example was correct, that would be selling out too… I got no problem calling it what it is…

    • reg joe

      You sound idiotic. Your sweeping generalizations are the sign of an uneducated mind. Why do you feel the need to associate color with art? You simply enjoy it. Music is an art form and about expression. If she (Iggy) enjoys music that Blacks created, whats the problem? O you want a job that was previously only held by a white person. Does that mean that you automatically dont qualify for it? I probably lost you on that. Stop placing barriers where they don’t already exist. If this woman likes Rap music and chooses to do it herself, because she is White doesn’t discredit the art form. Music is music and Im about sick of idiots always playing the race card. When you do actually have a reason to use it, you’ve cried wolf too many times to be taken seriously. Its music. Enjoy it and stop being such a Enjoy your day.

      • Brindle

        this aint art homie… and she aint expressing, she’s just repeating what she’s told, the only artistic part is the instrumentation… Get the point and quit being blind and scared to take a stance on something… She can rap, but rap with the Australian accent. HOW YOU DON’T GET IT..

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • Just know I hear that fancy song anywhere I have stepped out. White or not that shit is hot.

  • TimeWillTellu1

    She is the eye candy the industry wants.
