Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’ Rises On ‘Billboard Hot 100’ / Edges Closer To #1 Spot

#1.

While her debut album ‘The New Classic’ may have welcomed sales of the pint-sized persuasion in its opening week, Iggy Azalea‘s latest single ‘Fancy’ has given fans ample reason to predict that she’s set to score her first US #1 this year!

Yes… #1 on the ‘Billboard Hot 100.’

Good news below…

In the last week, Iggy kicked dust in the face of her competition when she sold 200,000 units of the aforementioned single, pushing it well past the 500,000 unit milestone and forcing it to #4 on the ‘Hot 100.’

As if that wasn’t enough to solidify her status as one of Pop’s more exciting newbies, the success of her Ariana Grande– led ‘Problem’ sees her become the fifth artist in history to occupy two Top Two spots on the ‘Digital Songs‘ tally, with ‘Fancy’ perched at #2 and ‘Problem’ partying at #1.

This, thanks to the 438,000 units it moved in the last seven days to score the largest opening week sales for a single this year, and the highest since Katy Perry‘s ‘Roar’ touched down with 557,000 copies in the August of 2013!

Could Iggy claim the #1 spot?

Weigh in below…

    I have a feeling it will be blocked from that #1 spot by “Problem” .. it might peak at #2 which is still terrific.Congrats to ha:D

    • Molly May 7, 2014

      Id die if iggy gets a number 1 hit before Nicki.

      • K May 7, 2014

        And what if she gets the 1# song before Nicki?

      • NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT May 7, 2014

        GURL 1.29 < 11.99 she is a singles artist

      • Molly May 7, 2014

        thats cute @Nicki.

    • Molly May 7, 2014

      That would be embarrassing seeing as tho Nicki has been on over 1000 songs in just the past year.

      • NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT May 7, 2014

        You know what else is embarrassing? Ciara’s album sales

      • Molly May 7, 2014

        No whats embarrassing is Nickis lack of talent.

      • NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT May 7, 2014

        Let’s not forget all of futures baby mamas he still avoiding child support? girl it can’t get more embarrassing then that

      • Molly May 7, 2014

        Dead at you trying to shade Ciara thru Future try harder babe.

      • NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT May 7, 2014

        It makes perfect sense lol! It’s just as embarrassing for Ciara as it is for future
        Byee

    Damn Iggy get it girl, Azealia needs to be taking notes.

  3. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT May 7, 2014

    It’s possible I guess….

  4. K May 7, 2014

    Gratz to her, a win is a win in my sights.

  5. Gracie May 7, 2014

    Both of those songs are forgettable garbage, but grats anyhow!

    • ak May 7, 2014

      Oh another washed up opinion from Gracie. You probably think Chi-Raq or Lookin Ass are masterpieces? Or perhaps you think Britney’s Work B**** is a msster peice. Take a bloody seat you noob!

      • Molly May 7, 2014

        Lmao.

      • Gracie May 7, 2014

        Noob? I’ve been commenting on this site on and off for years. I don’t stan for Nicki and I damn sure don’t stan for Britney. I appreciate vocalists and talent – something most of you trolls know nothing about. 😉

      • Molly May 7, 2014

        First of all this the first time i’ve ever seen this name on here so dead at you hiding behind a new name Nicki i remember when you got caught trolling and dissing your fav Nicki in the Rita ora post so sit your biitch ass down

      • NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT May 7, 2014

        Hold on watt???

      • Gracie May 7, 2014

        I’m not hiding babe. I don’t post all day everyday like you. I don’t even listen to rap music so Nicki is irrelevant to me. You were caught trolling as “Cici slays” and “Miley’s movement” quite some time ago and I always see you trolling in Beyonce posts. I’ve bed posting since the days of czarm, pharaoh and other intelligent posters. Those days are long gone and now the site is stuck with trolls like you – a reason why I rarely post. 😉

      • TABLEUX May 7, 2014

        Hunty Work B**** was a masterpiece.

    • ak May 7, 2014

      Noob referring to your opinions on music. Sit down and stay down cause right now Arianna and Iggy are respectively and collaboratively beating all your favs.

      • Gracie May 7, 2014

        Lol trust me, neither Ariana or Iggy are beating my fav. Iggy did open for my fav though. 😉

  6. BEYFLAWLESS May 7, 2014

    very good … see banks u should worry about ur music instead of something

  7. Molly May 7, 2014

    Insecure Much? @Nicki

    • NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT May 7, 2014

      Me? Nope.

      • Molly May 7, 2014

        You’re sure coming off like it today 🙂

    • Gracie May 7, 2014

      You are the definition of insecure….

      • Molly May 7, 2014

        Oh and how is that?

      • Gracie May 7, 2014

        As much as you troll Beyonce and Rihanna posts chile please. You’ve been caught trolling under different Ciara and Miley aliases also. I didn’t forget. 😉

      • Molly May 7, 2014

        First of all this the first time i’ve ever seen this name on here so dead at you hiding behind a new name Nicki i remember when you got caught trolling and dissing your fav Nicki in the Rita ora post so sit your biitch ass down

  8. Fernando May 7, 2014

    Fancy is dope but Problem is definitely a hit.

  9. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    So, Ariana Grande has a Hot 100 #1 hit?

  10. H2O May 7, 2014

    Congrats Iggy and Ariana 😀

  11. BEYHIVE_MINAJ May 7, 2014

    Congrats to her if she achieves this.

    • ARTCRAP May 7, 2014

      We will have to wait and see

  12. MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

    The real kii is that Iggy might be getting that #1 first than the Queen of Rap! Lol

    • did ya say bieber,gaga,miley,rita ora or bey (call me for a one night stand) May 7, 2014

      eve is the queen of rap,i thought she had #1 hits.thanks for the insight

  13. BEYHIVE_MINAJ May 7, 2014

    People want the Barbs to be pressed so hard lmfao we will forever remain unbothered. Superbass and Starships didn’t go number 1 but they had the commercial success Iggy would assassinate for.

    • Molly May 7, 2014

      Two corny ass pop songs…. bye your fav had to sellout for those hits.

      • NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT May 7, 2014

        Molly how could u blame me for being Gracie? I am not

      • BEYHIVE_MINAJ May 7, 2014

        Please stop. Like Fancy is any better. Even Va Va Voom wasn’t this corny.

      • Gracie May 7, 2014

        @Nicki trolls always blaming others for trolling.

  14. ARTCRAP May 7, 2014

    That’s great now to wait and see if her album will dabble in the same success as the single
    She should capitalize on the success of her single and drop her next able next month while she’s still on people’s minds

  15. MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

    After 500000 songs still no #1??? All those WW songs but no #1. Even crossing over to Pop and abandoning your roots urban still no #1? Lmao even basic rihanna changed genres to 5 minutes forgettable pop trash and atleast got those #1s

    • ARTCRAP May 7, 2014

      Sit your basic ass down you dumb troll!

      • MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

        I’ve been a TGJ user since you weren’t even born. I was here since Lovebird was “Beyoncé’s Weave” so sit your pathetic ass down.

    • Gracie May 7, 2014

      I remember you. I haven’t seen you around in forever.

      • MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

        Girl. I’ve been very busy and Exams are hectic I don’t have the time. I do have a life afterall lol (:

  16. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    I Don’t understand why “Super Bass” or “Starships” didn’t become #1 hits for Minaj! Didn’t they sell like 7+ million singles each

    • MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

      They were just too basic and forgettable for being #1

    • Applause May 7, 2014

      Cause Minaj is a joke

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ May 7, 2014

      Don’t you get it? They didn’t go number 1 but they are 8x platinum. Meanwhile,Fancy isn’t even gold yet. Basically proves that number 1s don’t mean jackshit.

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        true…. albums sales >>>> Singles/number 1 hits tbh…

      • Iconic Iggy May 7, 2014

        First of all, Starships sold 7 million worldwide not in the US. You can’t be 7x platinum worldwide when platinum only equals 1 million in the US. Secondly how can you compare a month old song to one that came out almost 4 years ago? Thirdly, #1s have more credibility then the sales behind it. People boast about #1s, not sales.

      • SpeakinDaTruth May 7, 2014

        Actually, “Fancy” IS certified GOLD.

        “Hot Digital Songs: #2 Fancy – Iggy Azalea Ft. Charli XCX 222,000 (596,000 total).”

        Blewp!

  17. MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

    Even selling out didn’t help her.

  18. MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

    Nicki Minaj is the definition of a basic biitch

    • NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT May 7, 2014

      TROLL

      • MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

        ….. That’s the best you got??

  19. did ya say bieber,gaga,miley,rita ora or bey (call me for a one night stand) May 7, 2014

    i am an iggy core fan so its fun watching her grow finally,i just wish she had better album sales because she rocks and shes hot as hell and people are saying shes better than nicki in every way,dont know if i agree…

  20. SpeakinDaTruth May 7, 2014

    YES! You GO IGGY!

    So WHAT if her album sales don’t match Nicki’s? It’s great to see another female rapper have SUCCESS! Instead of pinning these women against each other, we should celebrate the fact that their paving the way for other up-and-coming female rappers. I’m sure “The New Classic” will eventually be certified.

  21. Iconic Iggy May 7, 2014

    Fifth artist in history to hold #1 and #2 on the Hot Digital Songs chart and they still say shes a flop. I never expected Fancy to do so well. That would be huge if Fancy hit #1. I think it could carry the album if it blows up to a bigger hit. Macklemore’s The Heist opened with similar numbers as The New Classic but it went on to go platinum after 3 smash hits. The New Classic has some bangers so we cant say it wont happen!

    • ARTCRAP May 7, 2014

      B**** that’s not even her song

      • Iconic Iggy May 7, 2014

        I’m not talking about Problem dense bitchh, try to keep up.

    • MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

  23. MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

    Why would I waste my time and troll onika?
    She’s a sellout flop.
    Where are the real TGJ users? Pop Royalty? Suicide Blonde? Slay_Hive? The Boy Toy? Slayriah? Beyoncé’s Weave? Rosie? H20?
    Not these newbies and trolls.

    • H2O May 7, 2014

      🙂

      • MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

        Thank god some Real TGJ members are still here. This place is filled with trolls and newbies now.

    • NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT May 7, 2014

      Mariah loves Beyoncé sit down TROLL

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ May 7, 2014

  27. Nicki Minaj Queen May 7, 2014

    oh how cute Molly was never to be found when iggy’s second week sales was flopping hard. lol

  28. H2O May 7, 2014

    Madonna’s last tour: 305 million
    Bey’s last tour: 230 million
    Mariah’s last tour: 11 million

    Yah she’s soo passing them …..

    • MariahIsMusic1 May 7, 2014

      You damn tried it. Mariah isn’t a touring force lol. She’s always been a Sales artist. #1s, Grammys, Records sold WW, Radio Queen. She didn’t tour much anyways
      You should also ignore trolls those are not real mariah fans who pit her against Beyoncé.
      Mariah & Bey are two different artists from two different ERAs. Just stop that’s like comparing Madonna to Miley

  29. MusicStan May 7, 2014

    A.I’m 3 schleep at these trolls this is an Iggy post not Nicki Minaj okay. B.Yass Iggy is Killin with this song and it’s currently blazing the charts and doing her thang b/c “Fancy” is my s***. C. She ain’t slaying or Gonna slay Nicki IF she get #1 b/c her comp is nonexistent on this weeks charts there a bunch of old hits that are losing traction. When Nicki had Superbass slaying she was up against ADELE and her monster smash Rolling In The Deep okay. Starships was goin against Call Me Maybe another smash monster okay. She obviously went 7x Platmium with both and SLAYED. She didn’t sell out b/c she came into the game doing whatever she wanted and still does wait for the Punk Print to Blast all the trolls into the 5th ring of hell. Iggy is bomb af ight I loved her since Pu$$y b4 y’all knew about her ight so I’m givin her props just like Nicki Did so get with it or quite it

  30. lesotho finnest May 7, 2014

    hahahahhahaha… dead at mariah tour numbers, i had a good laugh at that.

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      Don’t be laughing at my Mimi!!!

      • lesotho finnest May 7, 2014

        i love her but i never thought her numbers were that….never mind, today i was busy looking at her performances on youtube, and man i got to admitt,, endless love warmed my heart while her collab with whitney on when you believe just brought me to tears and made me realise how much i miss whitney.

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        Oh don’t get me started on my Whitney! I miss that stage presence & voice. No one could match Nippy NO ONE!!!!

  31. RoyalKev May 7, 2014

    Rooting for Iggy! I love Fancy! I’m actually glad to see another female rapper with talent on the rise! I actually hope her & Nicki collaborate one day. Trust me, that would slay!

  32. lesotho finnest May 7, 2014

    oh my God, um screammmmmmmmming right now, john legend all of me is number one on billboard hot 100, yea papa john,slay them, it looks like its gonna be a good year for black artists

  33. CherylSoldier May 7, 2014

    Not these iggy stans in here trying to drag nicki
    When their fav sold 20k in album sales last week.

  34. Mark111 May 7, 2014

    All of Me is #1, follow by Happy and then Problem. R&B don’t sell?

    • Gracie May 7, 2014

      All Of Me is a pop song, but it’s a great look. Congrats to John!!!!

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        ^Dumb. It’s popular, but it’s R&B lil child. Now run along.

      • Gracie May 7, 2014

        Ummmm the song is very pop. Adele, Katy or any other pop singer would sound perfect over that beat. If that’s the case, Stay is an R&B song also.

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        Well that’s fine, but he’s an R&B artist. I know now the lines are blurred, but even Dark Horse is played on urban stations. R&B always was burred with pop imo.

      • Gracie May 7, 2014

        That’s why I said it’s a good look lol. Urban music is slowly but surely making a comeback.

    • H2O May 7, 2014

      and “Beyonce” is going 2x platinum soon! it’s really good to see R&B doing good all over again

  35. lesotho finnest May 7, 2014

    serve me papa john, serve me… i am soooo happy for him,

  36. lesotho finnest May 7, 2014

    what is the exact number that beyonce has sold in US and globally???

    • H2O May 7, 2014

      3,35 globally (MusiCharts)

      Local .. but gets better with more singles and promo

  37. rihanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS May 7, 2014

    As if that wasn’t enough to solidify her status as one of Pop’s more exciting newbies, the success of her Ariana Grande- led ‘Problem’ sees her become the fifth artist in history to occupy two Top Two spots on the ‘Digital Songs‘ tally, with ‘Fancy’ perched at #2 and ‘Problem’ partying at #1.

    RITA ora single came out the same time as Ariana, surely that sold more, right?

      What a waste of money and time. They need to stop trying with her … so boring, so bland, so talentless, so cring-worthy to watch her make a joke of herself trying to break into the US …

      • rihanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS May 7, 2014

        You are a beyonce fan, right? U need to wonder why beyonce and jay are so emotionally and financially invested in this girl.
