Love her or hate her, Iggy Azalea just made history…again.
Iggy now has the record for female rapper with the most weeks spent at #1 on the Hot 100, besting previous record holder Lil Kim.
“Fancy” takes the #1 spot on the Hot 100 again this week for the 6th week in a row.
Take a look at the updated rankings:
6 weeks, “Fancy,” Iggy Azalea featuring Charli XCX, 2014
5 weeks, “Lady Marmalade,” Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya and P!nk, 2001
2 weeks, “Doo Wop (That Thing),” Lauryn Hill, 1998
1 week, “Stand Up,” Ludacris featuring Shawnna, 2003
But that’s not all, Billboard also reports that “Fancy” ranks No. 1 on the sales/airplay/streaming-based Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts for a sixth and 11th week, respectively. The song also tops the Songs of the Summer ranking for a fifth week, remaining the only song that has ruled since the chart returned after Memorial Day.
Previously, Ariana Grande’s single “Problem” featuring Ariana Grande was at #2, but this week it drops down to #3 ending Iggy’s 1-2 reign and leaving her tied with Ashanti for the longest such run by a woman.
Ashanti was perched at Nos. 1 and 2 from April 20 through May 18, 2002, with her “Foolish” and as a guest on Fat Joe’s “What’s Luv?”
Whew knew “Fancy” would be such a hit? She reacted to the news by posting a photo of Billboard’s article along with the caption:
Pretty good way to start July! Lots of motivation to continue to work hard. I’m putting all my energy into black widow now & hoping you’ll love the video for it as much as you all enjoyed fancy. eek! I’m nervous but excited.
Can she do it again? We’ll have to wait and see.
