Chart Check: Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’ On Track To Set New Hot 100 Record

Published: Wednesday 9th Jul 2014 by Rashad

If you’re Iggy Azalea you are probably losing count of the ways you’ve been winning since the turn of the year.

As if already holding the record as the first female artist in history to see her first two charting singles hold the #1 and #2 spot wasn’t enough, now the Aussie rapstress can rejoice at news that her megahit single ‘Fancy’ is on track to become the longest running #1 single by a female artist this decade. Joining the ranks of Rihanna, Adele, and more, the rate at which the Charli XCX-assisted hit is selling could see it dethrone the ‘We Found Love’ hitmaker as the decade’s Hot 100 leading lady.

Via Billboard:

10 weeks, “We Found Love,” Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris, 2011-12
9 weeks, “Royals,” Lorde, 2013
9 weeks, “Call Me Maybe,” Carly Rae Jepsen, 2012
9 weeks, “TiK ToK,” Ke$ha, 2010
7 weeks, “Fancy,” Iggy Azalea featuring Charli XCX, 2014
7 weeks, “Rolling in the Deep,” Adele, 2011

But, as Iggy cruises toward even more singles’ chart success, plenty competition lays in wait to dethrone her.  See this week’s top 10 below:

Billboard Hot 100 Top 10

10. DJ Snake & Lil Jon – ‘Turn Down For What’

9. Maroon 5 – ‘Maps’

8. John Legend – ‘All Of Me’

7. Calvin Harris – ‘Summer’

6. Jason Derulo – ‘Wiggle’

5. Sam Smith – ‘Stay With Me’

4. Nico & Vinz – ‘Am I Wrong’ 

3.  Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea – ‘Problem’

      And the empire of #TeamTinashe GROWS!

      Hey! 😀

    • the voice July 10, 2014

      When Iggy sales one million albums like Nicki. That is when she will

  5. LegendaryRobyn July 9, 2014

    This never goes too well a mega successful 1st single for a new artist, rather start small then go strength to strength. Where’s Carly Rae? Lorde? Careful IGGY!

    • Britney Stan July 9, 2014

      Atleast Lordes album is platinum.

      • Skyfall July 9, 2014

        Lorde had two top tens and her album is platinum, and she hasn’t released anything in over 4 months.

  6. BritKnee Spears July 9, 2014

    When will Nicki????

  7. sleazy July 9, 2014

    Wait and her album sold less than 5k this Is like Carly rae jepsen all over again

  8. Britney Stan July 9, 2014

    When will pills n potions?

  9. Britney Stan July 9, 2014

    Carly Rae Jepsen (The One Hit Wonder)

  10. Mark111 July 9, 2014

    And all of those artist albums hasn’t sold passed 600K.

    Anyway, Rihanna has the longest #1 of the decade? Another record from the Princesses of Urban Pop.

    • FutureCIARA July 9, 2014

      Wheres Aaliyah on the list? oh wait

      • Mark111 July 9, 2014

        Where’s Ciara on the hot 100 or Top 200? Just like her baby daddy, nowhere to be found. #oop

      • #TeamTinashe Stan (BUY “2 On”)H July 9, 2014

        @FutureCiWarehouse This CiWarehouse stan has the nerves.

        NowPlaying: QUEEN Aaliyah’s “U Got Nerves”

        “Who do you think, you, are…. now I can’t believe, psh.. you got the nerves boy.”

        Didn’t CiWhereRa’s career get brutally damaged by Rihanna back in 2008? There is a reason why she only performs at 106 & Park now….

      • Mark111 July 9, 2014

        @#TeamTinashe Stan

        Classic. I don’t give too much thought to a C-error stan “loose rap”. lol

      • Brian310 July 10, 2014

        Where is Ciara?…Why didn’t she receive any awards for the “biggest” R&B song last year?…why did Loyal peak higher than Body Party?…Does Ciara still have a fanbase?..So many questions that need to be answered.

    • blue July 9, 2014

      dont feel like iggy is gonna pass 10 weeks, she might match it though, but as of right now Both magic and Sam Smith are outselling on itunes even with two version inside the top 30. just depends on radio

  11. Lovebird July 9, 2014

    But how is the Not classic doing?

    • Mark111 July 9, 2014

      You know damn well the real name of that floppy disk… Non Classic 😉

  12. blue July 9, 2014

    im sorry but carly had a second hit with Owl City…it might not have been as big but it was still a pretty visible song.

  13. Rihyeezy July 9, 2014

    Rude needs to snatch Fancy’s wig. But KIIIIII at it not even 4x plat
    Starships & SB>

  14. ALL MY BAD B!TCHES DO IT July 9, 2014

    First thing first, Iggy is the REALEST! #1!!!!!!

    Iggy Azalea is the NEW QUEEN of Hip Hop. There is definitely no competitors for her in the females category so she’s off to facing the men.

    Who is that other female that FAILED! to achieve Pop status like this? Go on, let me hear it.

    P.s Azealia Banks will become the New Queen once she drops “Wallace” which will be coming out on August 4th!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Mark111 July 9, 2014

      1 Hit Wonder. Female Vanilla Ice.

  15. Mimi Carey July 9, 2014

    She looks like one of the white chicks kii

    • blue July 9, 2014

      omg i always think of ‘white chicks’ when i see her.

  16. Grump July 9, 2014

    The first female artist to hold #1 and #2 was Ashanti, Followed by Mariah Carey. You mean the first female rapper? But congrats to her.

    • blue July 9, 2014

      they meant female artist to do it for the longest time.

      • grump July 10, 2014

        Lol your comment makes no sense. You can’t tell what they meant except you are Sam in disguise.

    • king July 10, 2014

      billboards does not acknowledge ashanti because she was a featured artist on the second song, where as mariah is the artist of her two songs

      • There once was a pimp and his h**…. July 10, 2014

        Then why is Iggy even being acknowledged for that record when she is also a featured artist on the #2 song on billboard?

    • JOHNVIDAL July 10, 2014

      If you people can read it is clear what they meant, cause it is WRITTEN in the article (a different thing is if all these invented records have any relevance). They meant she is the first female to do that with the FIRST two singles of her career. Is it that difficult? 🙂

      • intl July 10, 2014

        Those weren’t her first two singles, Work, Murda Bizness, Change Your life were a few that came before.

      • JOHNVIDAL July 10, 2014

        Explain that to TGJ or the source from where they got the info. But what I explained is what the article says, which none of these people seemed to understand.
        And about this girl I really don´t know about: maybe those singles weren´t official? Or weren´t released for people to purchase? I don´t know.

  17. CT July 9, 2014

    Most fads break records… nothing new

    • blue July 10, 2014

      or this could just be the beginning like the first record mariah/mj/whitney/madonna broke

      • CT July 10, 2014

        Your reaching…..

      • blue July 10, 2014

        how am i when i clearly said ‘could’ meaning there is a possibility just like there was for those artists i mentioned

  18. ChrisTUNA AguiHAHA July 9, 2014

    100 billboard is full of garbage. Who dat who dat?

    • Mark111 July 9, 2014

      Oh na na, what’s her name? Cause I don’t know.

  19. Skyfall July 10, 2014

    Congrats to iggy!

    I see two of my favs on here (Adele & Rihanna)

  20. Skyfall July 10, 2014

    I don’t understand where the “when will Nicki” comments are coming from

    Nicki has two best selling singles if all time.
    Super Bass (6million)
    Starships (7million)

    Fancy hasn’t even sold over 5 million worldwide.

    • truth (icki is FLOPN every ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 10, 2014

      It wasnt rap tho..we talkn about rap…sluut

  22. J.E July 10, 2014

    Basic Girls above Adele.
    Sad Situation.

    • blue July 10, 2014

      they cant be that basic if they are above her. seriously the over-rating of Adele is on whole other level

      • DIGGER BEY July 10, 2014

        Basic Hoees can achieve great things. Like Hoeianna having more #1s than Whitney.

      • blue July 10, 2014

        again she cant be that basic if she can achieve something the so called greats couldnt

      • DIGGER BEY July 10, 2014

        I know your Delusional Pressed Bum Ass isn’t calling Whitney basic? I don’t care how your ass slice or dice it, the biitch put the B in Basic.

  23. Iconic Iggy July 10, 2014

    Iggy’s gone from “won’t find a label” to “never will make it and dropped” to “her album will be shelved” to “a flop who won’t see the Hot 100” to now a “one hit-wonder”. Its time to move on again. Problem peaked at #2, Fancy still at #1 and Black Widow is coming in fast and hard. Iggy already has two hits, it will soon be 3. Is it really hard to just say congrats and keep it moving? Why continue to try and fail to degrade her success?

  24. truth (icki is FLOPN every ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 10, 2014

    When will nicki…clean her pusssy? 😀

    • DIGGER BEY July 10, 2014

      Kii Kii You sure hate Nicki lol

      • truth (icki is FLOPN every ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 10, 2014

        Yaaaassas lolol… hey love. 😀

  25. JOHNVIDAL July 10, 2014

    WOW just WOW! Out of those 6 longest #1s this decade, only 2 are not total crap (in fact they are very good: Royals and especially Rolling in the Deep). Just shows the terrible state of mainstream music, sales, quality and everything.

    • Stephy July 10, 2014


      • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez July 10, 2014

        Grandma Vidal, there was nothing wrong with We Found Love. You were pressed before but now you’re sounding delusional. I love some powerful r&b vocals too but there are other great genres out there that deserve success or people like. Your comments are not needed, in fact is some old Celine don’t do s*** but lip sync Dion on here? Aren’t you a bit too old to be trying it?

      • JOHNVIDAL July 10, 2014

        Really? What´s old or R&B vocals about Lorde??????? LMAO Shup up. And yes We Found Love is generic crap, that´s why it is there with the other songs (except those 2).
        Or since when is R&B the only genre I like? Since when is Celine R&B? You know I like Arcade Fire, Florence, Janelle, Lana, Lorde and many many more young artists from different genres right? Too many resons why your comments are irrelevant. Please tell us what u like? That would be a real laugh 🙂

    • J.E July 10, 2014

      although I agree with you regarding Royals and Rolling in the Deep. You are just saying this stuffs because gaga is flopping hard, and thats a fact.

      • JOHNVIDAL July 11, 2014

        What? NO. Gaga is not relevant in this discussion at all. I like Gaga but I´m not a fan like I am a fan of teh great ones. Suicideblonde is a real fan of Lady Gaga 🙂

  26. Beygency July 10, 2014

    Yay go Iggy! Now let’s use this momentum for album sales… Her team has gotta do better

  27. Xav July 10, 2014

    If anyone knew how to read you’d notice that the article states that this is a record of this decade meaning since 2010. It does not take away from Ashanti’s or Mariah’s or Adele’s success. It does perplex me as to why they are mentioning these as Iggy first two singles. All three of Ashanti’s first singles (What’s Love, Foolish, Always on Time) topped the charts as well as Ain’t it Funny by Jennifer Lopez for which Ashanti has writing credits. Ashanti also had 10 charted weeks at #1 with Foolish. IDK. Anyway, congrats to Iggy. I think her voice can be slightly irritating when listening for long periods but she has an “it factor” and she seems to work hard and want it. A lot of people are saying it’s solely because she’s white, but look at Carey jepsen and Robin Thicke. Being white does not always give you an automatic ride to the top, especially in a chart arena where blacks have dominated just as well as whites, even if not at the current moment. Her album is decent, and she’s still very young. She has time to grow and perfect her craft. Let her live.

  28. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez July 10, 2014

    I really hate this song, it’s just the chorus that people like, if it had better verses then I would have liked it

  29. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez July 10, 2014

    Where were these Iggy fans before ‘Fancy’ dropped?

  30. Brian310 July 10, 2014

    I think Rude might dethrone it before it reaches 10 weeks but congrats to her for achieving a #1 and holding it for as long as she has.

  31. Casual-T July 10, 2014

    This week or next week is the final week at the top for Fancy. Rude is poised to hit the top very soon.
