Love her or hate her, but you can’t deny the fact that Iggy Azalea is hot right now.
In fact, the Australian born rapper is so hot that she recently accomplished a feat that no other female rapper in the history of the genre has been able to achieve.
Iggy’s massive single “Fancy” has now officially been atop the Billboard Hot 100 for six consecutive weeks. That tops the previous record of five weeks held by Lil Kim for “Lady Marmalade,” her hit 2001 collaboration with Mya, Pink, and Christian Aguilera from the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack.
Azalea is one of only four female rappers to ever reach the top of the Billboard Hot 100. In addition to Iggy and Lil’ Kim, Lauryn Hill spent two weeks at No. 1 with “Doo Woop (That Thang)” in 1998, and in 2003 Shawnna made it to the chart’s peak position as the featured guest on the Ludacris smash “Stand Up.”
Iggy took to Instagram to acknowledge the feat:
Pretty good way to start July! Lots of motivation to continue to work hard. I’m putting all my energy into black widow now & hoping you’ll love the video for it as much as you all enjoyed fancy. eek! I’m nervous but excited.
Iggy Azalea’s album The New Classic is in stores now.
