News: Iggy Azalea makes Billboard History

Share via emailShare on WhatsApp


If you were to tell me that I’d be mentioning Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and historic, legendary rock band the Beatles in the same sentence one day, I’d tell you to lay off the bath salts. But low and behold, the Grand Hustle femcee finds herself alongside the likes of Paul McCartney & John Lennon, as she has officially made music history that was only made once before by the Fab 4.

With the release of this week’s Billboard Hot 100, Iggy will join the Beatles as the only artist ever to simultaneously hold the #1 & #2 spot on the coveted music list with their first two Hot 100 hits. This is thanks to the rising popularity of her hit single “Fancy”, which leaped from the #2 spot to the top of the list, and her feature on Ariana Grande’s chart climbing song “Problem”, which leaped from #3  to #2 on the Hot 100. Congrats to Iggy and the rest of her camp.
