Beyonce Tops ‘Rhythmic’ Radio With ‘Pretty Hurts’ / Iggy Azalea Continues ‘Fancy’ Reign

Published: Wednesday 11th Jun 2014 by David

Thought Iggy Azalea‘s time atop the ‘Billboard Hot 100′ would be a short lived affair? Well…think again.

For, as her  debut ‘The New Classic’ swims in a sea of commercial struggle and strife, the single spends its third week atop the chart, outperforming each and every single number available for purchase in the USA!

Good news for she and ‘Confessions‘ vocalist Beyonce, below!

Billboard Biz explains:

Azalea continues her record-tying run at the chart’s top two spots, as, for a third week, “Fancy” and “Problem” rank at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively. Previously, only the Beatles held the Hot 100’s top two rungs simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 entries: On the Feb. 22, 1964, chart, the Fab Four’s “I Want to Hold Your Hand” stayed at No. 1 while “She Loves You” pushed 3-2. Azalea has a ways to go before matching how long the Beatles controlled the top two; they logged 10 straight weeks occupying (at least) both Nos. 1 and 2 at the same time, through April 25, 1964, as “Hand” and “She” placed at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, for four weeks; they then reversed ranks for two weeks; for the next four frames, “Can’t Buy Me Love” ruled, while “Twist and Shout” was No. 2.

On radio, Beyonce rises to the top of Rhythmic stations with her latest single ‘Pretty Hurts‘, now the most added jam on the format after scoring over eight new commitments on the format.

Set to help the number impact the ‘Billboard Hot 100′, its rising presence radio comes after it peaked at #12 on the ‘Official Charts R&B Singles’ tally, and as its official music video surpassed the 27 million streams mark on ‘VEVO‘ alone.

    Iggys album isnt even doing that bad considering we didnt even expect it to be released, plus shes a white female rapper from Australia. lets be realistic, her second will prob do better, Fancy only started to become big fast recently

    • Bravo!! June 11, 2014

      Thank you,!!I had to check the billboard and her album as of last week is in the top ten billboard 200 so I don’t know why Sam is trying to play her.

      • Bravo!! June 11, 2014

        And I forgot to add her single “work” is climbing the charts as well, and it might surpass nicki minaji efforts.

    Congrats to these hard working women! So proud of Iggy, it’s hard being a female rapper and to Beyoncé… Well it’s quite impressive when you don’t promote and you’re still the #1 chick so kuddos to them! And I like Pretty Hurts anyway so BRAVOOOO ladies!

  3. Kim Kardashian Stan June 11, 2014

    Pretty hurts is such a flop Lmao.

    And yas at the slay of ms. Iggy .

    • TRUTH SERUM June 11, 2014

      Are you referring to your overused vulva or inflatable assets. This is a music blog, not a p*** site.

    • tyler June 11, 2014

      Umm, excuse you h** but I don’t believe anybody gave you permission to speak about The Queen Bey or any of the relevant music post at hand. Koncubine Kardashian is beneath her. Now have several seats on Ray J’s d*** and stick to the rivers and lakes that you’re use to.

  4. Navy Nick June 11, 2014

    I love it

  5. Unbiased June 11, 2014

    Honestly, I don’t know why people are calling Pretty Hurts a flop, it was just sent to radio yesterday. But, some stans don’t think rational so carry on.

    • Mark111 June 11, 2014

      The excuses. What you gonna say in three weeks when it still flops? No promo BS?

      • Yea ok June 11, 2014

        Mark get a dictionary and learn the difference between a fact and an excuse. It was just sent to radio. We are not in the month of July yet sweetie so sit down miss Cleo and give credit where it’s due.

      • DIGGER BEY June 11, 2014

        That @ Mark character is so damn pressed over THE QUEEN LMAO.

  6. Warriornika June 11, 2014

    Pills and Potions> Pretty FLOPS

    • MisdamenorFan June 11, 2014

      You made that shiz up! That visual puke of a video! Girl I get more life from watching Rhi roll one to that boring video.

    • DIGGER BEY June 11, 2014

      Girl u need to be jailed for that shiznit

  7. ALL MY BAD B!TCHES DO IT June 11, 2014

    WOW! Iggy is the new Queen of Hip Hop just like that. *Winning* watch all the NiKki stans try to berate me lol. Ewwy I mean Iggy is running thangs now!

    Azealia Banks “Wallace” music video comes out July 1st!!!!

    • FANCY #1 June 11, 2014

      Iggy is forever winning!

      • whut June 11, 2014

        Sorry, but you need more than one hit and you need to sell some albums before you can be called the Queen of anything.

    • llawrence June 11, 2014

      How is one song make you hotter than Niki? Please, just watch this song with Niki and the Game then let’s see what you have to say then.

  8. CT June 11, 2014

    If iggy is running hip hop I guess carly rae jepson is the queen of pop.

  9. The Great Lacefronce. June 11, 2014

    Pretty Hurts will FLOP just like XO!!

    • llawrence June 11, 2014

      Do you really think Bey gives a cats ass about what you think. Bey is about to go on tour again for the second time this year and I don’t think you understand when Bey dropped her album all her songs on the album were the first single. Selling over 900 thousands in 4 days. Flop that!!!

    • DIGGER BEY June 11, 2014

      Damn!!! I keep believe I’m about to say this but I thought Majority of Whoreianna stans were Delusional Ass Fawk! But u do have a little sense knowing PH isn’t a Flop when it was just released yesterday kiiii

  10. Tina June 11, 2014

    The New Classic is doing relatively fine. She’s just starting to gain traction and popularity in the states, people didn’t know who she was until Fancy hit the scene. “Work” is starting to gain traction on the charts, “Lady Patra” is the next single. Slow and steady will win the race for Iggy’s debut in the states. By the time her second album comes out, her name alone will be more buzz worthy as she continues to gain notoriety.

    • Mark111 June 11, 2014

      That album is just like any album that flopped, but it has a hit on it. Williams had a #1 hit, but his album is just under the 400K mark to date, same with John Legend with a lil over 500K. All these albums are flopping, music just isn’t selling, but singles are. I see No Classic going Gold IF she has more hits on her.

    • whut June 11, 2014

      Stop trying to sugarcoat Iggy azalea’s failure to sell albums.

  11. ALL MY BAD B!TCHES DO IT June 11, 2014

    I bet you Iggy Azalea breaks Nikki’s reign for the “Best Female Hip Hop” at the BET BET Awards. And if not, then their just trying to protect Nikki.

    Pills and No Potion is failing because the girl thinks she can sing by repeating the same lines in a song so annoyingly……smh

    • Mark111 June 11, 2014

      Has Nicki done anything the past year other than features? Uggly get two hits and all the sudden she’s the best? BTW Nicki been winning by default for the past years anyway. I remember Missy won those like hot cakes and Best Female Hip Hop artist at the grammys, that’s why they got rid of it.

    • Minaj21 June 11, 2014

      PnP is not flopping b**** just shut da f*** up

      • MisdamenorFan June 11, 2014

    • LOL June 11, 2014

      LOL FLOPPY AZALEA’S ALBUM IS FLOPPING HARDER THAN MARIAH’S LOL

      • llawrence June 11, 2014

        LOL!!!!!!

    • whut June 11, 2014

      She won’t. Nicki may have won those awards by default, but she was a platinum-selling rapper when she won them. Iggy’s album wont even be Gold by the time the BET awards come around.

  12. Mark111 June 11, 2014

    Pretty Flops, Pretty Flops… yesssssss.

    • DIGGER BEY June 11, 2014

    • llawrence June 11, 2014

      WHO IN THIS WORLD IS SO WORRIED ABOUT BEY COMBING HER BABIES HAIR, DO YOU THINK SHE CARES ABOUT WHAT YOU AND ANY OTHER BROKE ASS THINK ABOUT HER AND HER BABY. FIND SOMETHING MORE IMPORTANT TO DO WITH YOUR TIME. WHILE YOU WAS TYPING THAT BEY WAS MAKING MONEY.

  15. musiclover June 11, 2014

    the bratz made a really good point the other day starship sold over 7 million copies and superbass sold 5.5 million copies i rather have the a best selling single peak at number 2 selling 7 millions copies than to have a single going number 1 and only selling 200k

    i was reading that MJs single thriller only peaked at number 4 but sold over 15 million copies world wide and its a classic. i admit i was wrong for making fun of nicki for not having a number 1 single BUT if fancy sells over 5 million im gonna drag nicki again if nicki still doesnt have a number 1

    • LTM June 11, 2014

      You’re comparing a single to an album? Oh. Pills N Potions is struggling to break top 40. How embarrassing for an established act on her third album!

  17. Rosie June 11, 2014

      Ultimate death @ Barbz clinging to worldwide single sales!! The struggle indeed! 7 million 1.29 singles sold worldwide yet still no #1 🙁 poor dat! Too bad those sales couldn’t push PF:RR past 1.5 million worldwide or help Nicki sell out theatres/clubs. Keep clinging to those old receipts while the rest of us live in the present where the flop can’t even break top 40.

  22. LTM June 11, 2014

    Its absolutely tragic seeing the Barbz cling to worldwide single sales. No other Stan base has that weak of receipts. When your fav can’t chart, can’t sell tickets, or albums that’s all you really have. It won’t change the fact that Pills N Potions is flopping right now or that her next album will be lucky to peak at gold.

  23. fatusankoh June 11, 2014

    Omg I love pretty hurts bey show case her beautiful voice long live queen bey

  24. BGaga June 11, 2014

    does Beyonce even remember she released an album? how about actually promoting ur sh*t? Two promo performances…in 6 months! Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and everyone else has done more promo in one day than beyonce has done in 6 months. Get ur sh*t together B! Fack

    • Rih Rox June 11, 2014

      Because the album sucks.

      • DIGGER BEY June 11, 2014

      • Tyler June 11, 2014

        No, sucks is just a synonym for Music Of The Sun, A Girl Like Me, Talk That Talk, Rated R, Unapologetic….and the rest. ofRihSplice’s 6565421389 albums that couldn’t even manage to sell 300k in the 1st week.
