Iggy Azalea Scores Longest Hot 100 Reign for a Female Rapper

Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea is making history on the charts. The Aussie rapper’s Charli XCX-assisted single “Fancy” tops the Billboard Hot 100 for a sixth week, giving her the longest-leading No. 1 by a female rapper.

According to Billboard, she passes Lil’ Kim, who spent five weeks at No. 1 with her star-studded collaboration “Lady Marmalade” in 2001.

Other female rappers on the list include Lauryn Hill, who spent two weeks at No. 1 with her 1998 single “Doo Wop (That Thing),” and Shawnna, who enjoyed one week at the top with 2003′s Ludacris-assisted hit “Stand Up.”

Iggy celebrated the news on Twitter. “6 weeks at number 1!! Yes! Thankyou so much guys!!! she said.

But she’s not basking in the glory for long. She has already shot a video for her next single, “Black Widow” featuring Rita Ora.

    @Oh, It’s funny when people like you really think that new artists like Iggy are better than artists are since years on the top like Nicki. You people are brain dead if you really compare Nicki with Iggy.

    @Patt,

    I will be more impressed when she sells 18 million like Lauryn Hill.

    She is #1 b/c of radio/ payola and vevo …. not sales.

    I will wait to see if she can touch Lauryn Hill sales

    @vevo artist, Lauryn Hill can not repeat her sales success Decades ago. It is 2014. The measure of success is different TODAY especially since people are barely buying albums.

    [Reply]

    wtf? Reply:

    @Get Real,

    Lauryn could repeat her success…. look at Adele who says the Miseducation is her favorite album ever

    Lauryn created a GREAT album…. Iggy is a sngle artist

    I NEVER EVER get involved in these Nicki V Iggy debates on this site. Have to say Nicki is EXTREMELY talented and can now compete with males. However I also have to say Iggy deserved that BET award WAY more but it woulda been political :(. Anyway I been watching Iggy since Tumblr days w/ PU$$Y and I am so proud man! Well done gurl. MMG

    I’m happy for Iggy and all, but at the same time it bothers me Azealia Bankd had to have s big mouth and ruin her career because this could have been her and then some. Such a waste because she is do talented and blows Iggy away.

    She really earned this. Black Widow is going to murder cannot wait for this video. She knows how to put up visuals. I hope they perform it at the VMAs.

    @KEN., OMG YES A AZEALIA NICKI IGGY COLABRATION LIKE LADIES NIGHT WOULD SLAY! Ugh she will blow up soon enough.

    @Sean,

    Lol Azealia and Iggy don’t like each other so maybe not.

    Plus if Nicki ever wanted to do a ladies night, it will only give lil kim stans like OH to drag her.

    @KEN., Can’t happen, if she keeps starting beefs, before a new single/video/promo/album/etc…

  11. Oh

    Since Iggy doesn’t “write” her songs like some claim she should get Keys The Problem to SLAUGHTER Nicki bitch ass AGAIN

    LMAOOO Keys and Lil Kim had Nicki shakin in her boots her punk ass was scared to respond all she had to say was “I don’t respond to negativity” BITCH PLEASE ! Your just pickin on Iggy cuz you think she’s a weak target, let that had been Keys The Problem or Lil Kim , Nicki prolly wouldn’t have said shit

    [Reply]

    Major Sushi Reply:

    @Oh, But let’s not forget who’s relevant now. It’s not that Nicki’s afraid to say names. It’s just that she knows that business is business. You can’t drop names, whenever you want. That’s unprofessional.

    Look at Azealia. She should’ve had her album out a loooong time ago. But she’s too busy starting fights to make herself relevant.

    Look at Kim. As soon as she started to shoot, no one wanted to work with her, because she’s unprofessional.

    Look at Keys. From the beginning, she supported Kim’s side & beef, from the beginning she supported Nicki being fake/weak/etc… Now look where it got her.
    As I recalled, Kim promised a joint mixtape with Keys, but that didn’t happen, did it?

    You see Nicki as “weak” But weak people don’t have the smarts to stay relevant. If that were true- Keys, Kim, Azealia, would’ve been the ones shading Nicki & Iggy. Not the other way around.

    But, you know, business is business. *sips tea*

    @Major Sushi, Who gives a fuck. Nicki let kEYS The Problem BODYBAG her ass, and nobody has forgot about it.

    Nicki wouldn’t try that shit with Keys so she took it out on Iggy and Kim who not into it. Betchu Nicki wont fuck with Azealia or Remy Ma tho

    NICKI & IGGY BOTH RELEASED STATEMENTS TODAY, CAN WE PLEASE TRY AND GET THE PICTURE?! STOP PITTING THESE ARTISTS AGAINST EACH OTHER. YES YOU MAY HAVE A FAVORITE BUT YOUR OPINION IS SUBJECTIVE. YOU CAN BE A FAN OF BOTH. SAME GOES FOR NICKI VS KIM FANS. THEY HAD THEIR BEEF BUT IT’S OVER. PLEASE MAKE USE OF YOUR TIME ON THE INTERNET AND PROMOTE POSITIVITY RATHER THAN NEGATIVITY!! MORE THAN ONE FEMALE IN HIP-HOP CAN SHINE AT THE SAME DAMN TIME I PROMISE YOU.

    @flysly,

    But of course her delusional stans will try to discredit any artist out-performing Nicki, so they’ll probably turn it into a race issue.

    Iggy Azalea has OFFICIALLY dethrone Nicki Minaj. She finally has some main stream competition and she’s gotten the best of her.

    Nicki Minaj never had a song go #1 on the MAIN STREAM charts and she’s been around for how long? yet Iggy just coming out and look at Fancy’s success.

    Karma’s a bitch Nicki for slick dissing all the female rappers the past few years for winning at the small stage, which are the BET Awards. Her slick dissing, which she’s denying has really made me upset with her and I’m a fan of hers, but gloating and thinking you’re better than everyone is something I hate in real life.

    Lil Kim was at Nicki because of her success, Then Nicki turns around and do after Iggy? WTH?

  18. boi.cold

    YES Nicki Minaj has been dethroned! (As for as charts) because she never was ‘The Queen’. Proud of Iggy doing her thing, paying homage and remaining classy. Those making it about race or her writing abilities are idiots. You have some wack atl rappers or chief keef and no one is complaining, rather they wrote it or not it’s garbage. SO Let IGGY Have Her Shine.

    The fact that out of all the dope female rap songs this has had the longest #1 reign on the Hot 100 chart, speaks volumes of how irrelevant this actually is. Rah Digga wasn’t lying when she called her the female Vanilla Ice. #WhitePrivlege

    Not a single threat to queen Iggy. The Beyonce of rap music. The female Eminem. Your faves might as well retire. Azealizard Bankrupt didn’t even stand a chance. LMAOOOO.
