Billboard Hot 100: Iggy Azalea’s ‘Team’ Tanks

Published: Wednesday 6th Apr 2016 by David

Its big budget video and insanely infectious hook makes Iggy Azalea‘s ‘Team’ one of 2016’s more exciting new releases.

Alas, that’s done little to stop the single from slipping and sliding its way out of the Billboard Hot 100.

Full story below…

Azalea’s new set ‘Digital Distortion’ is expected to find its way to retailers this summer, and fans had hoped ‘Team’ would rock and roll on the Billboard Hot 100 to support its commercial journey.

Unfortunately, it seems those hopes have been shattered after the cut slipped 29 places on the Billboard Hot 100 less than a fortnight after its release.

Its current position?


Marking her first single to be launched without a featured act since the release of her debut album ‘The New Classic‘, ‘Team’ followed the release of the buzz cut ‘A Zillion’, and much to the surprise of its supporters, is faring so poorly in the U.S. that not even the streaming figures its visual has garnered are enough to guarantee it won’t slip out of the tally in the weeks following this one.

  3. Ace April 6, 2016

    Sad people rather listen to s** and bs than positive music

  4. Jamie April 6, 2016

    Good for her!

  5. Macklemore’s Mrs April 6, 2016

    Her label execs told her not to release this because they know she can’t sell without singers. Now look. 29 place drop and it’s been out for two weeks.

  6. BEYSTAN_1997 April 6, 2016

    Great news! I’m tired of these culture vampires trying to bank off the urban community! Wendy Williams called it last year and said Iggy will not last and it starting to happen now, the suburban kids are over you and your novelty of being a forgien white girl white black women’s body and fake accent has worn off! Stop appropriating black culture and go back to Austrailia!

    • Out N Proud April 6, 2016

      Preach! Everyone loved Gwen and Fergie because they were authentic. Same goes for Pink. We know when it’s not real and the public has spoken.

      • Weee April 6, 2016

        Fergie authentic??? Bish, please!!! She is just another one who knows how to turn off and on that ghetto slang. She was in a group with a bunch of black men, acted hood around them, but then goes and marries a white man????????????????? Lol!!!!$ please!!

  7. Out N Proud April 6, 2016

    Oh no! I wonder why the GP aren’t here for her anymore. You know it’s bad when she can’t even slay with streams. Mess with the LGBT community and see how far you’ll get!

  8. maurice April 6, 2016

    the song is tiring.
    Bored of it already

  9. Courtney April 6, 2016

    not every single single released is going to be a huge hit or if it’s a specific Genre say Country is it going to be released to pop/adult contemporary airplay for example Faith Hill & Tim McGraw’s 1998 duet Just To Hear You Say That You Love Me peaked at #3 on what is now the Hot Country Songs Chart but was never released to top 40 or AC Radio though some AC stations/hosts played it anyway

    • Tay Tay Swift April 6, 2016

      No no. Don’t ever compare anything by Faith Hill to Iggy again. Iggy has the benefit of being cross promoted on radio and booking several televised performance spots. People see her content and don’t want to buy it. Simple as that

  10. IStan4Rihanna. April 6, 2016

    She is, and was, nothing more than a…




    She’s lucky that she saw such success with “Fancy” (thanks to Gwent Stefani’s little sister: Charli XCX) but her fame was never meant to go beyond that. Perhaps she can another hit as an Ariana Grade feature or if she clings to Rihanna, Katy Perry or Taylor Swift. Sorry… 🙁

    • Carlitos April 6, 2016

      She’s had more than one hit, you f****** imbecile.

  11. Fergalicious ’16 April 6, 2016

    Not to kick her after she pulled herself down but who is shocked by this. She thought she had it made and forgot it was the urban blogs like TGJ who put her on in 2012. Once you lose them you lose its hard to keep your flops under wraps and retain the perception that you’re slaying. Look at Ciara. Most people think she’s doing moderately well because of the optimistic way she is reported on here. Urban girls need urban blogs even if those Urban girls are white and think white privilege will carry their careers.

  12. truthtea April 6, 2016

    I don’t think Nicki sabotaged anything. She too busy making her own paper! Iggy did this to herself! Her ignorance and bigotry towards gays, blacks, and Mexicans ruined her!!

    • FAF April 6, 2016

      And they know that they’re just joking ?

  13. Kingbey April 6, 2016


    • Fergalicious ’16 April 6, 2016

      How do you expect her to make people care about a song which flopped AFTER its video came out and AFTER its been sent to radio. There’s s difference between a song which rises slowly because that indicates slow but promising growth. This isn’t the case with Iggy so she needs to move on to the next single.

  14. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? April 6, 2016

    Whelp. I’m sure she has something in the stash that will put her back on top. Good luck though.

  15. Danzou April 6, 2016

    I’m so happy

  16. No favs, just here for the music April 6, 2016

    Lmao! As it should

  17. Danzou April 6, 2016

    Black people have no problem with people who want a piece of the culture. What we don’t like is when people don’t care enough about the culture. Black people love Jojo. We love Justin Timberlake. But iggy is trash.

    • Funkyyyall April 6, 2016

      “we” do NOT love TimberSnake.

  18. April 6, 2016

    i’m not a fan of hers like that, but i must admit,i do like this song.and i an’t happy she the song isn’t doing well, even if i didn’t like the song.she doing her thing Nicki doing her thing, no need for both of them path to cross.i’m a fan of Nicki and i an’t one of them running on here wishing for iggy down fall, i have no love are hate towards her.

  19. Qing Dunk April 6, 2016

    Iggy is now exposed. Once everyone found out she was faking the funk her star power dimmed. You can’t steal from a culture, bash ethnic community’s with racist comments, fake an accent and expect not to get caugh up. People gravitate towards authenticity and Iggy is a product, not an artist. Sure Fancy was dope and she had “hits” but let’s be real, she has a “Team” of writers and a whole camp of other people that put her together. Furthermore the best part about fancy was the hook and it wasn’t even her singing it. We are in a new musical era where the people want real artists and if you’re faking it you will be called out. We want to be entertained not lied to. I was a fan of iggy when she was underground, before Fancy. Once I found out this “urban white girl” was an Australian Becky basically acting, she lost me. Nicki don’t even need to sabotage her she’s doing that all by herself.

  20. #JACKIE April 6, 2016

    The song tanked because it f****** sucks.

    • Memo April 6, 2016

      Just like all of Jackie’s singles.

      • Nicki Minaj thee ONLY QB April 6, 2016

        What Jacike had singles released when..?

      • #JACKIE April 6, 2016

        Sis call me when Team outpeaks I Bet. Goodbye ashy.

      • #JACKIE April 6, 2016

        Worry about Nicki and BarberFLOP that nobody’s going to see, f**.

  21. Abel Minaj (Arianator Barb) April 6, 2016

    I knew it would do worse than pretty girls, nobody wants or uses her anymore. June 2014 is long gone and those glory days aren’t coming back

  22. Duffster Lovato April 6, 2016

  23. Blogger1616 April 6, 2016

  24. True Lambily April 6, 2016

  25. King Mark111 /.\ April 6, 2016

    Her fans alreayd called it the song of the summer… just like Pretty Girls… BUT I don’t think her video views are counted yet.
