It’s finally here!
Three years after it was first teased by the ‘Fancy’ Rap princess, Iggy Azalea‘s debut album ‘The New Classic’ is now available to purchase in the United Kingdom!
Hitting British shores this morning, tomorrow will bring with it the album’s US release, likely to see it become the highest charting/selling debut LP from a female rapper since Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Pink Friday’ pulled in an opening week number 375,000 units in the November of 2010!
Will Ms.Azalea do just as well?
You tell us after checking out our latest edition of ‘Chart Check’ below!
Led by the UK Top Twenty jam ‘Work’, ‘Classic’ now sits at #3 on iTunes UK‘s album tally, currently being outperformed by Paolo Nutini‘s ‘Caustic Love’ and compilation disk ‘Now That’s What I Call Music!87.’
Meanwhile, as Lana Del Rey’s ‘Gods and Monsters’ rose to #54 overnight, Iggy’s ‘Fancy‘ sits pretty at #12, one spot above Pharrell‘s ‘Happy’, six places above Chris Brown‘s ‘Loyal‘ and eight positions above Katy Perry‘s ‘Dark Horse‘ which whips up a Pop storm at #20.
If ‘Classic’ crosses the 100,000 milestone in its opening US week, it’ll become the first LP (debut or otherwise) from a female MC to do so since Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ moved 253,000 copies when it hit stores in the April of 2012.
