Billboard Belles: Iggy Azalea & Ariana Grande Dominate Hot 100 With Three Appearances Each

Published: Wednesday 20th Aug 2014 by Sam

Congratulations are in order for Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande.

For, the Pop forces have seen their chart darling status cemented on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.

See what we mean below…

Defining dominance, the young talents have exerted quite the strong hold on the top ten of the US tally. Indeed, both boast three appearances in the Hot 100.

Grande’s ‘Break Free’ leaps fourteen spots to #4, while ‘Problem’ slips one spot to #7. ‘Bang Bang’, the singer’s collaboration with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj dips one spot to #10.

Azalea, who guests on ‘Problem’, shares the song’s charting. Elsewhere, her own monster single ‘Fancy’ sits at #5, while its follow-up ‘Black Widow (ft. Rita Ora)’ has climbed seven spots to #8.

The chart slayage serves as a major coup for both ladies projects; it becomes the 2nd top ten placing for Iggy’s ‘The New Classic’ and gives a huge boost to Grande’s sophomore set ‘My Everything’ which arrives on August 25th.

Both stars will be taking to the stage at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday and will no doubt give an added push to their respective LP’s. More power to ’em!

    Congratulation! Death @ Iggy’s ugly ass slaying like this!

    • Skyfall August 20, 2014

      Why isn’t her album selling tho?

      • Stephy. August 20, 2014

        Ooop! Maybe cause album sales are low?

      • Skyfall August 20, 2014

        No excuse. She has 3 top tens and her album is uncertified internationally DEATH. I think people are over buying b******* music. But from what I hear Taylor swift new single “Shake It Off” lol, is set to sell 400-450k this week. I already know her album number will slay in the US

      • Britney Stan August 20, 2014

        guess its the same reason why Adele is as big as a whale

      • F**k Nicki August 21, 2014

        At least people are buying SOMETHING. When will nicki have 3 songs in the top ten in 1 week? 2? None? Nicki reeking for seconds lmao

    • Everyone’s A Critic August 20, 2014

      Iggy is stunning when done up, she has a classic Hollywood look. Stop hating

  2. Fancy BISH August 20, 2014


  3. Skyfall August 20, 2014

    Congrats Ariana & Rita y’all better slay.

  4. Everyone’s A Critic August 20, 2014

    I love iggy as a performer, by performer I mean modelling and acting in her videos, she’s hot. But her rapping skills are basic as a child learning rhymes for the first time. Black Widow is catchy but it feels empty in its verses and the lyrics are WEAK! Don’t get me started on Break Free… Congrats for the achievement but charting and credibility are two different things. If I were an artist, credibility and critical acclaim would be more of an achievement compared to my chart performance

  5. Jay August 20, 2014

    Congrats Iggy! Who wouldve thought back in January we werent even sure if The New Classic was even finally getting released…

  6. Skyfall August 20, 2014

    Why is a Bang Bang slipping it’s been outselling all the songs in the top ten… I guess it’s because of that stream rule and all of the payola the other songs have.

  7. Yea ok August 20, 2014

    Well I’ll be damn ed and they did it without resorting to appearing half naked in a music video and wearing thongs on singles covers. Kudos to them. (I’m not a fan of either in not their target audience)

  8. Barbie’s World August 20, 2014

    Girl Power! Woman are slaying the Hot 100 this year. Congrats

    • Everyone’s A Critic August 20, 2014

      When do women not slay the top 10?

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 20, 2014

      When will nicki daawln??

  9. Ar August 20, 2014

    Hold up – more important to note that there are three appearances each in the Top 10! Impressive feat.

    • Fancy BISH August 20, 2014


  10. lovefemalerap August 20, 2014

    Can we not be negative towards Iggy female rap is back Iggy and Nicki slaying Remy and Kim is buzzing and now Sisterhood Of Hip Hop lets be happy

    • Fancy BISH August 20, 2014

      YAAAAAAAAAS, your comment is everything 😉

  11. CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

    Too bad taylor is about to block any chance that Ariana has of getting to number 1. And death at iggy literally becoming the new Kesha/pitbull with those album figures.

    • Skyfall August 20, 2014

      Honey Kesha debut actually sold lol. Yes I heard Taylor is debuting with 400-450k. Also I wonder why Bang Bang is slipping.

      • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

        Its digital figures aren’t that much higher than the others and its not being played as much. Megan is slaying it, but it think it’ll change after the vmas. And iggy is giving me Kesha warrior tease, except Kesha can chart a top 10 without a feature.

  12. christinastherealtalent August 20, 2014

    Congrats for 2 of the hottest women in the industry right now! Somewhere, Nicki has smoke and fire bursting from her head fuming in rage.

    • Barbz 4 lyfe August 20, 2014

      When will floptina? that b**** hasn’t had a solo hit in almost 10 years

      • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 20, 2014

        When will nicki…EVAH!!!

  13. One less problem August 20, 2014

    when will Beyonce Rihanna Nicki Katy or Gaga? Iggy & Ariana are slaying those old h***…

    i know the barbz katy cats hive and navy are upset they favs getting dethroned

    • Avi August 20, 2014

      Are you serious? Both Ariana and Iggy struggle pathetically in album sales. I’m not impressed by their selling $1.29 singles. Holla back when these Kleenex b****** start moving $10 albums! 😉

      • Memo August 21, 2014

        Beyoncé’s supposed to be ”the most powerful” woman in the game and she can’t even pull Adele or Taylor’s numbers when that should be an easy feat to achieve, the REAAAAAAAAAAAACH.

  14. Lana lover August 20, 2014

    Poor Rihanna, Nicki, & Mariah Lmao Rita,Iggy, & Ariana snatching their wigs

    • LanaToo August 20, 2014

      Don’t forget Lana’s botched face

  15. Britney Stan August 20, 2014

    So proud of Iggy omg she’s slaying these singles

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 20, 2014

      When will s****** again?

  16. CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

    But the iggy stans should honestly worry about their fave becoming a Kesha understudy! Kesha charted many non feature top 10s, but that second album flopped!! At least Kesha was global tho.

    • Yonce August 20, 2014

      Talking bout global when you stan for Local Cole

      • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

        The main difference is that cheryl sells in her home market. Iggy doesn’t. Thanks for proving my point.

    • Honeymoon Avenue August 20, 2014

      Ke$ha was an auto tuned Dr.Luke puppet, Iggy is a rapper. No similarity at all.

      • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

        Iggys “raps” are the same as Kesha’s. Nice try. And not you denying that iggy is pop lol. Kii

    • Jamie August 20, 2014

      Kesha was an edm auto tune singer smh you sound dumb

      • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

        She literally made white girl rap popular. What are you talking about?

  17. Yonce August 20, 2014

    Why is Rita ora slaying Cheryl cole?

    • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

      She’s not tho. Cheryl’s latest single outsold Rita’s. Get your shade right.

  18. Honeymoon Avenue August 20, 2014

    Ariana is killing it! I’m so proud of her! To think people were saying she was a one hit wonder with The Way lol! Bring on My Everything! Congrats to Iggy Azalea too! I think her album will overall end with decent sales due to the hits, like Katy Perry did with Teenage Dream She’s still building up her fan base. Selling 13k a week for over month is pretty impressive. Most albums don’t sell or are front loaded these days.

    • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

      Girl what? Katy was platinum at this point. Iggy isn’t even at 300k

  19. Beysus August 20, 2014

    Yea they’re doing well now… But who will stay relevant next year???…

    • overdose August 20, 2014

      Mad cause all Beyonce singles have been flopping? Im still waiting on Xo, Pretty flops , & partition to outpeak body party.

      • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

        Self drag

      • tyler August 20, 2014

        Um…don’t you stan for Ciara-man????

      • Beysus August 20, 2014

        Are YOU mad that BEYONCE, the album sold 4 mill WW in 6 months???!!!!! B**** take a seeeaaat!!!!

  20. Jamie August 20, 2014

    Congratulations Iggy she’s really coming hard her fan base is increasing by the day her next era will be huge since this era is already slaying.

  21. overdose August 20, 2014

    Slaying Beyslut Nicki Garbaj & R**** i see

    • tyler August 20, 2014

      The Prince is Heerrree!!! Heara!!!!

  22. CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

    Not these stans saying that fancy is a rap song! Where is it on the rap charts? Who is buying it? That same fan base that bought tik tok is buying it. Iggy is pop!!

    • Fancy BISH August 20, 2014

      ummm, Fancy was 17 weeks at #1 on the rap chart last week…not sure if she tied King Missy with the longest run at #1 in Billboard’s Rap Songs chart history with 18 weeks this week…first things first, sorry boo boo 😉

      • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

        You’re right, my mistake. But the billboard charts also said diamonds was an rnb song. I just think fancy is more pop than rap. Just my opinion

  23. LB (Shanene > Wanda) August 20, 2014

    Use that payola IGOR, it’s the only way you can get this nonsense you call music to chart.

    In the meantime, the THOT Classic still hasn’t crossed the 300K mark in the USA, huge FLOP.

    • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

      Hey gurl
      *plays boys lie*

  24. Rosie August 20, 2014

    All the Iggy haters perched in here again, as usual. Everytime they try and drag and say her career is ending every time Onika breathes, Iggy just comes in again and does better. Kii.
    I saw Taylor is doing 450K! Slay. She has the GP, the critics, even the snobby indie people bowing at her feet now like Beyoncé does. Poor Ariana. She really thought she could just come in and snatch the preteen market away from her.

    • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

      Rosie do you like this Ryan weaver girl? I think she’s cute. What about Shawn mendes? Lol

      • Rosie August 20, 2014

        Ryn is obviously the biggest industry plant of all time but her music is cute. Mainly for the production, which is probably one of the biggest reasons it’s getting so much praise (once again, Passion Pit/Cashmere Cat their impact). That is, if Interscope didn’t pay for the blogs to write about it.
        I’ll check out Shawn. I’ve heard of him before.

      • CherylSoldierr August 21, 2014

        He’s Canadian. I like his tone. Hopefully they don’t turn him into another bieber tho.

  25. Mark111 (Cici Finna Be a Bride…Pending) August 20, 2014

    Doesn’t this tie with Ashanit 3 in the top 10 record?

    • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

      Ciara boo!

      • Mark111 (Cici Finna Be a Bride…Pending) August 20, 2014

        Who? 3 at the same time… boo. Where’s Cheryl on the US charts?

      • CherylSoldierr August 20, 2014

        Babe where’s Aaliyah?! It’s been like 12 years!

      • Brian310 August 21, 2014

        She will slay once her posthumous album gets released now back to the original question where is Cheryl?

  26. JFB August 20, 2014

    Iggy is the 1st rap chick to have 3 songs in the top 10. SLAY

    • anaconda August 21, 2014

      None of which are solo. When will ogre get a solo top 50 tho.

  27. truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 20, 2014

    When will nicki 😐 ???

  28. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) August 20, 2014

    Omg get rid of that PONY ALREADY ARIANA!!! D*MN!

  29. DTG August 20, 2014

    Yet neither can get an album to even gold status. Something is very OFF here.

  30. Self-titled August 21, 2014

    Iggy is the first rapper, male or female, to have 3 top 10s simultaneously.

    Who else is doing it?

  31. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! August 21, 2014

    Hope Taylor swift can make to number 1 next week!! She could also be number 1 in the UK.
