‘Stream Queens’: Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’ Crosses 6 Million Mark / Nicki Minaj Sizzles On ‘Social 50’

Published: Friday 14th Mar 2014 by David


Sharing a mutual collaborator in Keyshia Cole, rappers Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj now find themselves riding high on digital seas this week, reaching milestones set to aid their respective new albums.

In the mood for some good news?

Meet us below…

Ranking the most popular artists on YouTube, Vevo, Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud, Wikipedia, Myspace and Instagram every week, Billboard’s ‘Social 50′ may give Minaj cause to celebrate this evening, thanks to digital moves she made in the last week.

Indeed, in extending her lead as the chart’s most ‘popular’ female rapper of all time by way of data generated by sales, streaming and social media, this week saw her become the greatest gainer on the tally thanks to snaps shared on her personal Instagram page.

One of these, available to peep below…


Enjoying a 40% increase on the chart from the week before, her engagement on the platform (measured by ‘Likes’ to posts) rose by an ego-boosting 421%, kicking electric pink dust in the faces of any who failed to impact the chart’s Top Ten.

Meanwhile, by way of its well received tribute to Amy Heckerling’s ‘Clueless‘, Iggy’s ‘Fancy’ visual speeds the 6 million mark on VEVO, streamed 6,196,454 times since its March 4th arrival.

Coupled with its sales, its streaming figure has helped it to score a #88 peak position on the ‘Billboard Hot 100’, weeks before the April 18th launch of her debut album ‘The New Classic’!

  5. Lana Del Slay March 14, 2014

    I forgot that Diddy used to manage Onika.

  6. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    Just like Beyonce. Slaying streaming with minimal sales.

  7. QUEEN MINAJ♥ March 14, 2014

    so happy for nicki 😉 Queen. Now rap b****** I think you know what to do, BOW DOWN.

  8. Lolz March 14, 2014

  10. QUEEN MINAJ♥ March 14, 2014

    @Slay riah always hating on nicki and beyonce lol

  11. Lolz March 14, 2014

    I love the song Fancy. Never cared for Iggly before hand though.

    And Nicki is looking amazing lately. Much better more natural.

  14. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. March 14, 2014

    Two FLOPS

    Both of their albums will flop

  15. BEYAWNCE March 14, 2014


  16. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    Who is this random sending multiple comments to me?

    Yes, I said minimal sales. *Cough* Partition *cough*

  17. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    It took DIL months to go platinum while Roar, Wrecking Ball and even Applause were platinum within weeks.

  18. Lolz March 14, 2014

    And yet they’re all higher than cough you’re mine cough.

  19. Lolz March 14, 2014

    The only one currently selling minimal copies is your fave sis. No matter how you spin it back on the past.

    And dead at you comapring her to Miley and katy. Beyonces already outsold both their albums.

  20. Lolz March 14, 2014

    Oh and Gaga.

  21. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014


    Please sit down. Mariah’s record sales are higher than your fave’s. (Whoever that is)

  22. Lolz March 14, 2014

    And that doesn’t change my point.

  23. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    Did I even mention albums? I was clearly talking about singles. Lol. Learn to stay on topic h**!

  24. Lolz March 14, 2014

    So you’re shading someone selling albums with peoole selling singles?

  25. Rosie March 14, 2014

    Look, another Moo stan clinging to the past, as always.

  26. Lolz March 14, 2014

    It does not matter what you were talkin about. Shading her singles while shes currently outselling all those peoples albums is dumb.

  27. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    Shading? Lmfao. I’m just delivering the stats babe.

  28. Lolz March 14, 2014

    Yes and the stats are Beyonce is platinum. Nothing minimal about that.

  29. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    All I was trying to say IN THE FIRST PLACE before you addressed me when I wasn’t even talking to you, is that Beyonce and Icki slay with streams but have minimal sales (singles) and that is a fact.

  30. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    And the Stants are Katy is 4x platinum, Mikey is 3x platinum and Gaga is 2x platinum. #sit

  31. Lolz March 14, 2014

    And my point is her sales are not minimal because she is PLATINUM. Minimal sales = Body Party which is still not platinum despite being the so called biggest R&B hit of the year according to C Squad.

  32. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014


  33. Rosie March 14, 2014

    Drunk In Love will outsell Applause in the long run.

  34. Barb B**** March 14, 2014

    And You’re Mine is certified flop. She doesn’t even have streaming on her side despite stripping naked looking like raw chicken in the video, ipad competition, performance and interviews. The Struggle. Don’t say shes unbothered, clearly she is

  35. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    Btw, Partition dropped ten spots on the BBHot100. Why? Because it was pushed into the top 30 by streams last week but now that streams are dying out and it is barely selling, it is free falling. Smh

    Slaying streams with weak sales . #Sorry

  36. Barb B**** March 14, 2014

    Congrats Nicki looking sooo gorgeous. Shes so pretty.

  37. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    I doubt it. Even do What you want already sold over 1 million. Drunk in Love should have been platinum a long ass time ago.

  38. Lolz March 14, 2014

    And where is You’re Mine?

  39. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    Of course she is unbothered. Her net worth is at least 12 times greater than Nicki’s net worth. #StayMad

  40. Barb B**** March 14, 2014

    Her desperate antics say otherwise.

  41. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) March 14, 2014

    Diddy looks ashy…

  42. Rosie March 14, 2014

    The struggle to drag. DWUW took a good 4-5 months to go platinum and DIL took about two. Not to mention BEYONCÉ outsold Chartflop in 2 weeks. You would think with those struggling sales Fadga’s singles would be doing well but nope. Little comparison.

  43. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    Isn’t Nicki the one posting shower pics on Instagram. Nicki flopping after 3 years chile. 3 YEARS! Mariah slayed for 2 decades.

    Be gone peasant.

  44. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) March 14, 2014

    And y’all say Kelly Rowland looks like a horse????? ONIKA GOTTA BE PART HORSE! OMG, she needs the wig and make up on at all times…

  45. Barb B**** March 14, 2014

    But Nicki actually looks hot. Mooriahs deperate 50 year old mother self posting bikini pics like shes something people will drool over? Aint nobody got time for that besides her son. I mean, husband.

  46. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    DWUW is NOT a lead single though. You should be comparing DIL to Applause and Body Partytition to DWUW. Stop brining albums into this. I am/was talking about singles. #TheDesperation

  47. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    Nicki struggles after 3 years.
    Mariah slayed 2 decades.

    Be gone. You’re dismissed.

  48. Lolz March 14, 2014

    Omg Drunk In Love was not released as a lead singles the same way as all the other peole you are struggling to shade her with. It don’t even see it as a lead single it was accompanied by another song and came out the same week as the album. Clearly people bought the album with the videos already on it and the single STILL went platinum.

  49. Lolz March 14, 2014

    Every single one of those songs, had time weeks before the albums was released and push of being a PROPER lead single. Not just a song dropped alongside the album which already had the video on it.

  50. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    Excuses as always.


  51. Lolz March 14, 2014

    Translation: I have nothing left to say.


  52. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    Translation : zero fuucks given

  53. Lolz March 14, 2014

    Oh you’re back? Clearly you have f*** to give.

  54. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    Eve Zendaya’s Replay just crossed 1 million.

    Can Body Partytition?

  55. Lolz March 14, 2014

    It has more of a chance than You’re Flopping (eternally). Even without a performance and ipad competition.

  56. Lolz March 14, 2014

    In other news ‘BEYONCE’ has now sold over 3 million WW for those who follow sources like Chart News, Media Traffic.

  57. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    3 million ww? That’s cute. The Emancipation sold 6 million in the US…

  58. Lolz March 14, 2014

    Thats cute. In 2014 Beyonce is Queen.

  59. SLAY_RIAH March 14, 2014

    That’s cute. In 2014 Mariah is a legend.

  60. Lolz March 14, 2014

    Yes, exactly. Testament to the past. Meanwhile… In current news….

  61. quetta March 14, 2014
