There no doubt that the 2014 American Music Awards was an incredible night for music with some huge performances that people can't stop talking about. One of the performances that has to be at the top of that list is Iggy Azalea teaming up with Charli XCX to perform their hit single "Fancy." If you missed it during the show, you can see it right here!
Iggy and Charli XCX get "Fancy"
Charli XCX goes solo to perform "Boom Clap" and "Break the Rules"
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.
London-based singer and songwriter Charli XCX is quickly proving an unqualified phenomenon with her edgy, yet addictive approach. Since her first critically-acclaimed track, “Nuclear Seasons” in 2011, the 22 year-old, Charlotte Aitchison, co-wrote the #1 smash single, “Fancy” with Iggy Azalea, and penned last year’s double platinum summer it-song, “I Love It” recorded by Icona Pop, which she is featured on. Most recently, Charli XCX released the platinum selling “Boom Clap” single from the The Fault in Our Stars: Music From the Motion Picture soundtrack, landing the #1 spot on Top 40 radio along with a brand new song, “Break The Rules,” from her forthcoming sophomore studio album Sucker arriving December 16th via Neon Gold/Atlantic Records.
