I spends a sixth week at number one.

As Iggy Azalea prepares her next single “Black Widow," featuring Rita Ora, for download and radio war, “Fancy," featuring Charlie XCX, is still fighting off the competition in the top spot for a sixth week.

Billboard reports that the Australian rapper's six weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 with "Fancy" is a new record for a female rapper.

The second longest running single from a female rapper is Lil Kim whose “Lady Marmalade” collaboration led the charts for five weeks.

Azalea nearly set a second record for controlling the top two spots for five weeks, MAGIC!'s "Rude" popped into the second spot, deflating Ariana Grande's "Problem," which featured Azalea.

After spending five weeks with the top two singles, Azalea tied Ashanti with the most weeks in the top two positions by female artist, according to The Music.

At No. 4 are Nico and Wanz’ “Am I Wrong," with Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" rounding out the top five spots on the Billboard 100.
