(AllHipHop Rumors) It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard a good bop from Iggy Azalea.
She captured everyone’s attention early on in the game for bringing a cocky, fun, and simultaneously eccentric vibe in her music.
It’s not hard to tell that the rapper is somewhat salty about the recent skyrocketing success of Cardi B, and her huge Billboard achievement.
This past week, Cardi was crowned with a prestigious honor: her first three Billboard entries all entered the Top 10 at the same time. Only The Beatles and Ashanti have achieved the same feat, so needless to say, this is a major deal.
Iggy was under the impression that Billboard also awarded her the same (back in her heyday), but she failed to realize that her first entry, “Work”, only peaked at #54 (not Top 10). Iggy tweeted,
"Not being a jerk but did billboard forget the cover they gave me for breaking this same record ? Congratulations a million times to her, I genuinely think she’s awesome & has great bops. I hope she smashes it out the box and has her first 4 or even 5 in the top, I’m rooting for her. I just think it’s a little shady to see media outlets ignore that I set the same record with my first 3 entires."
She also tweeted,
"Cardi is such a light & I hope all her records have the same success as Bodak Yellow. I love seeing ladies smashing chart records out of the park & I’d never want to stomp on anyone’s shine! work didn’t enter the top 100 until AFTER fancy was a hit, no negativity at all intended."
Regardless, she decided to call out Billboard and insinuate the claim that they glossed over her highlight. While she did give props to Cardi, one would wonder if she’s truly happy for her...or is just trying to cover up her bitter commentary with some ego stroking.
Nevertheless, we still have not heard an Iggy smash in a while. Maybe she should concentrate on that?
