Two Iggy Azalea singles see sales spikes of more than 40 percent each and a Nicki Minaj single makes a strong showing on the R&B/Hip-Hop singles chart this week.

This week, Iggy Azalea continues her run at the top of the R&B/Hip-Hop singles chart with “Fancy," while another one of her songs enjoys a significant sales boost. Nicki Minaj also returns to the Top 10.

Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” #1 For A Month

    You a stupid ass bitch

    Nicki, Meek, Wayne all on the charts. YMCMB MMG is an unstoppable empire. Everyone else is garbage. Don't see Kendrick, Pusha T, J Cole, Common, Kanye, Lupe, Ludacris on the charts. Anyone who hates on YMCMB is either a Nazi sympathizer, an Al Qaeda sympathizer, a feminist, a pedophile, a crackhead, a welfare recipient or broke.

    Hmm! Iggy is really doing her thing with this Fancy song.
