After years of honing her signature style on hip-hop’s underground circuit, Iggy Azalea burst onto the charts and emerged as the breakout story of 2014. Her smash hit, “Fancy” featuring Charli XCX, rocketed to #1, breaking airplay and Spotify records along the way. After an astounding 7 weeks at #1, Iggy Azalea made history on the Billboard Hot 100 as “Fancy,” rewrote the record for the longest-leading No. 1 by a female rapper. Iggy made chart history again as the first artist since The Beatles to rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 hits. “Fancy” has been unilaterally dubbed 2014’s “Song Of The Summer,” and has been covered by everyone from Saturday Night Live, to Jimmy Fallon, to Weird Al Yankovic. Iggy’s debut album, The New Classic, peaked at #1 on the Billboard Rap Album charts, a first for an international female artist. Iggy’s new single “Black Widow” featuring Rita Ora, hit #1 at Top 40 and Rhythmic radio.
