Iggy Azalea Becomes Only Third Act To Replace Herself With Number One Pop Single

(AllHipHop News) While many music observers were debating whether or not Nicki Minaj was “throwing shade” at Iggy Azalea during her BET Awards acceptance speech, The New Classic rapper merely continued her reign on the Billboard charts.

“Problem,” Azalea’s collaboration with Ariana Grande, moved up to number one this week on the Pop Songs and Rhythmic Songs charts. With the single replacing “Fancy”- also by Azalea – on the Pop chart, it puts the Australian performer in rare company. According to Billboard, she joins only Mariah Carey and OutKast in accomplishing the feat of replacing herself at number one on that tally.

“Fancy” is currently at number one on the main Hot 100 chart with “Problem” at number two. That chart will be updated on Wednesday. Azalea’s “Fancy” leads the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts as well. Her collab with T.I. “No Mediocre” is also a top ten rap song.

Azalea previously etched her name into chart history when “Fancy” and “Problem” held the top two spots on the Hot 100. That made Iggy the first artist since the Beatles in 1964 to have her first two charting singles be #1 and #2 simultaneously. She also became only the fourth female rapper to log a number one Hot 100 single after Lauryn Hill, Lil Kim, and Shawnna.

    Damn, Lord Jamar was right.

    • Twonpass

      YEP!!!!!!!!

  • Markus

    Azalea is doing well so you have to say she’s popular among today’s rap listener. But she’s not contributing to the culture of hip hop. Doubt she’s interested in the legacy of the music so these pop records will continue to be made. It’s a new day.

  • timwest1000

    Singles. How many CD’s did she sell? The machine is really serious about making this girl a star. She represents the long ignored angry white kids who want to be black rappers.

    • Daria

      Iggy’s album is the 3rd best selling rap album of the year… not even Rick Ross has went Gold yet. its not her fault sales are the pits in the current industry climate.

      • timwest1000

        3rd best and she is running hip hop? Seems inflated to me. Besides, I have no doubt she will sell more CD’s because of people like you who have a motive unseen. I am almost positive by this time next year, you wont be kissing her ass like you are now.

    Still so called hip hop heads secretly give more credit to the charts than they do raw talent

  • Butch Magnus Milosevic

    Culture vulture

  • Starr soprano

    Nobody contributes no more….rap has been dead for years.. people come in, cash out, and spin off….keep getting that chicken iggy…as far as a culture vulture, this rap scene ain’t the same scene it used to b so the culture to me doesn’t exist so she raping the game like anybody else would

    • B.U.

      Exactly. Real heads don’t take mainstream rap seriously anyway so I say if you gonna go mainstream, go all the way wit it.

  • Quintin Williams

    I’m not hating on Iggy and I applaude her on the success. Nicki did some bullshit, you can’t say you open doors for women and then try to insult them. She is trying to stay on top but her lyrics and hunger to stay on top hasn’t been consistent. I think Iggy stealing her shine has made her realize that she’s somewhat not relevant anymore. Get back in the studio and bring some music to the table with that fake booty that I would so want a piece of

    • Papi Peligro

      Isn’t that the same thing Lil Kim did to her.

      • Daria

        NO because Nicki was bullshitting on her as well. Nicki is very petty and shady, signs of insecurity. And she’s over 30 years old now,a mess.

      • Papi Peligro

        No Lil Kim started hating hard and Nikki kept paying Homage. Lil Kim wanted to extort money out of her like a toll road you have pay homage and put me on the track. Same thing. They are all insecure.

  • B.U.

    Ain’t no way I’m gonna hate on Iggy when the culture welcomes Drake with open arms. There’s absolutely no difference.

    • SAD_FACED_CLOWN

      Are you kidding me? This broad raps like she’s from the Southern US and she’s from Australia. Drake at least has talent.

      • B.U.

        Drake is from Forest Hill, Toronto and raps like he’s from Louisiana. What’s the difference? I agree Drake’s more talented but that’s still a matter of opinion. A lotta people clearly think she’s talented too.

      • GP

        and I wish bg, c-murder and mac were free and soulja slim was alive because they would get in wayne ass for allowing this dude to fake like he from the N.O.

      • B.U.

        That’s all I’m saying. The new cats didn’t want to follow any rules so when it backfires, I don’t wanna hear no bitchin from em.

      • GP

        I agree with you on this.

  • bplus1220

    This broad is from Australia, sounding like she is from Texas!!!! Why do we continue to allow people to be fraud and applaud it?? This bitch is wack, Nicki is wack, BET is wack. Can we get Rapsody more screen time?!?!?

  • SAD_FACED_CLOWN

    This chick is on some Milli Vanilli rap shit and cats are accepting of it. SMH

  • Papi Peligro

    FIRST OFF HOW NIKKI BEEFING WHEN SHE WAS MAD LIL KIM DID IT TO HER.

    I’m a fan of Iggy. My problem is her lyrics got dumb down like Cassidy to make hits. Not mad.

    • atlantahiphopshop

      LMAO. You know you actually typed that out and hit enter right?

      • Papi Peligro

        Oh grammar police. I left my grammar check under my N)T sack glad you found something to do down there.

      • atlantahiphopshop

        LMAO Forget the grammar, a fan of someone who is literally faking to be a rapper? You are on the wrong site to “stan” around trolling.

      • Papi Peligro

        Are you serious. I’m not gone down nobody cause I like Nikki 2. But her Roman voice isn’t exactly american. I can’t believe I’m even having this argument.

      • blastah

        How does one fake being a rapper when they actually can rap?

      • atlantahiphopshop

        LMAO< You got jokes huh? Stop playing with grown folks. We all know you guys are just saying that to make us mad. You love her out of revenge.

  • somewhere right now azelia banks is balling up her raps and throwing them at the computer screen.

    • GP

      she prolly getting ready for another rant.

    • Papi Peligro

      LOL. She could flow. I hate her and IGGY didn’t do How High Remix together would’ve been dope.

    • Guest

      She would’ve made it too if she didn’t burn so many bridges.

  • Papi Peligro

    Alright for all you people tripping about the voice. Nikki Minaj raps in British and Patois. Let IGGY and Nikki be great.

    • Guest

      Every artist from London sings with an American accent so this ain’t nothin new.

      • blastah

        The Negroes want it to be a unidirectional appropriation of culture, in their favor, of course. Hence their approval of Nicky Minaj rapping with a British accent but complete condemnation for Iggy rapping in a Southern Black American accent. Racial hypocrisy at its finest.

      • kristin

        The african american people I have encountered hated Nicki for the fake British accent. She said herself she got tired of people dissing her for it.

      • blastah

        cut the bull! did they voice their approval in public, in media? Stop it, okay?

      • B.U.

        Who are “The Negroes”? Please be specific.

      • Black Adam

        Word

    • Brindle

      ITS A MODERN DAY MENSTREL SHOW, QUIT TRYING TO BE SYMPATHETIC TO HER LACK OF TALENT AND INDIVIDUALITY

  • GP

    reading all this drake got talent, the music world let this Canadian punk and his butt thigh buddy Justin cross the border n get American money and do what they want, so why everybody hating iggy? just do what real folks do if you don’t like them don’t listen to them or buy the album.

  • Havoc Wreaka III

    This girl is 21 stuck in a 12yo body… shes a child molesters dream.. honky men love her

    • B.U.

      Dog, I ain’t never seen a 12 year old who looks like that. She’s damn near 6′ wit a fat ass.

      • Twonpass

        fake ass…..lol

      • B.U.

        Maybe…but still fat.

      • Twonpass

        she aint good for nothing but a smut out……

        and her fake ass you can have all of it, Ill take the real shit…

      • B.U.

        That’s very noble of you LOL

      • Havoc Wreaka III

        She’s 5′ both of them bitches and i’m talking about Ariana

    • blastah

      • Havoc Wreaka III

        Honky mad?

  • Brindle

    they just laughing at us

  • Brindle

    we need to quit letting them laugh and supporting it

  • Myleage

    i thought Nicki had a number 1 single too?? your love? and i cant believe Luda’s “Stand Up” was a #1 song and got a grammy. that song wasnt even that hot

  • ShaStud

    OK Im Smarter now O_o

  • She is white, they seem to have a new agenda to push this white chick straight to the top….They did the same with Eminem labeling him the greatest rapper alive, now they are doing it to Iggy……It’s just a shame how black folks can’t do everything in their power to push their own kind to the top, too busy fighting and hating on each other.

  • youngplaya

    It’s all ENTERTAINMENT PEOPLE. Do you like the song? If not turn it off. All the other Social and Conspiracy comments is just BS. This is a white chick that raps. So what? Everyone knows that America and the World loves White people that do Black Music or Pop Music. It’s Business. You guys are actually being Racist. If she was Black would it be a problem? I guess your comments would turn to I hate this trash whore and bitch and all the other negatives comments I see some of you idiots post about Nikki. Now you’re mad this white chick getting shine? Ya’ll niggaz BiPolar AF

    • I see what your saying, some people hated on Nicki Minaj, and now they like her on strength of hating on Iggy….But I disagree, Remy Ma for example was the next big thing in female Hip-Hop before her incident….But if you remember she had some groundbreaking features and her debut album, and no one gave her any credit as far as how they are treating Iggy with just a 1 0r 2 songs under her belt. When a white person crosses over into a genre that is predominantly black, they get praised like they are the greatest of all time, and it’s not fair.

      • youngplaya

        True I agree and see your point. But that is the machine. The machine is pushing this chick to a teen audience and her record sales will go through the roof. Im just saying talent/hard work will put you on top. Remy Ma played herself like a lot of people do. Stick to the music like Wayne and Ross do and you will get ya shine on. People just can’t say Yo Im hot I ought to be on the cover of the Rolling Stone. You have to take it. But it’s the machine. Just like who would say Beyoncé has a better voice than Jennifer Hudson? Probably no one. Yet Beyoncé is at the top of that Forbes list and cash out every year. It’s just life homez.

      • Black Adam

        No its not just life. Its an Agenda. You have just become use to it so you cant read or see between the lines. Most ppl on here dont like Nikki AND dont like this broad Iggy for some of the same reasons. Neither of them really have anything to offer than some dumbed down generic ratchetness to the 10th degree. They’re equally trash.

      • Dope

        Most people here don’t like them, but those who buy the music and merchandise, they do and there are enough of them to warrant them being marketed heavily. Don’t fool yourself that just because you don’t like something that there aren’t a million people out there who do like it and will give money for it.

      • Twonpass

        its life in amerikkka….. you aint paying attention ?

  • William Witherz

    She is being continuously thrust into the spotlight despite her lack of original content. I am confident that she will be disposed of quicker than you can say “Kreayshawn”.

    Nicki talking all that sh1t but I don’t see her name anywhere in this section.. Only Kim & Lauryn!

  • DJ7

    If you fools believe this hype job the machine is obviously forcing down your throats, you deserve every accolade that comes along with being labeled a fool in the 1st place…no 1 is checking for this broad, outside of a few weirdos who camp in the comment sections, so knock it off AHH!
