Iggy Azalea: Breaking records and taking names

 

A few short weeks ago, very few people had heard of the 23-year-old Australian rapper that goes by Iggy Azalea. But now, that's all changed.

Azalea is smashing the record, previously held by the Beatles, by holding down the top two sports on the Hot 100 with her first two chart singles. "Fancy" ft. Charli XCX has reached the No. 1 spot, while Ariana Grande's "Problem" ft. Iggy Azalea has made its way to No. 2.

The Beatles were in charge of the No.1 and No. 2 spots for six weeks in 1964 with their first two songs to hit the Hot 100 charts. Those songs were "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and "She Loves You."

Beyond the charts, Azalea is also the third female artist in history to hold down the top two spots simultaneously. Ashanti was the first in Spring of 2002 with "Foolish" and Fat Joe's "What's Luv?" on which she was featured. Mariah Carey was the second in late summer of 2005 with "We Belong Together" and "Shake It Off."
