Iggy Azalea breaks record on Billboard Hot 100 chart

By Kabraun Dixon,

This week, Iggy Azalea will be sitting all “Fancy” with Charlie XCX at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 as her first charting single rocketed to No. 1.

According to Billboard, Azalea topped the Hot 100 after reaching the top five on radio songs and by leading digital and streaming songs.

At No. 2 is Azalea again, only this time as a featured artist on Ariana Grande’s “Problem." Azalea tied the Beatles’ 50-year-old record for the only artists to take their first two Billboard hits to the top two spots simultaneously.

The “Work” MC also became only the third female rapper to top the Hot 100 as a lead artist after Lil Kim topped it with “Lady Marmalade” in 2001 and Lauryn Hill topped it in 1998 with “Doo Wop (That Thing)."

Last week’s No. 1, “All of Me” by John Legend, fell to No. 3 this week. “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, and DJ Snake and Lil Jon's "Turn Down for What" rounded out the Top Five at Nos. 4 and 5, respectively.

After this groundbreaking achievement, Azalea took to Twitter to show her gratitude.
