Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” Remains On Top

Iggy Azalea has two appearances in the Top 15 of the R&B/Hip-Hop singles chart this week. Her “Fancy” single is the #1 single on the R&B/Hip-Hop singles chart for the tenth consecutive week. 

The rapper’s single has been on the charts for 18 weeks and sold 171,075 copies this week, a four percent decrease from last week’s 177,739 units sold.

This week, Busta Rhymes said that he had to wait for Eminem’s verse.

“My partner Shaheem Reid reached out to Riggs Morales, who was an A&R at Shady Records at the time,” Busta Rhymes said. “He came by the studio to hear the song, and two weeks later, we finally got a confirmation from Paul [Rosenberg, Eminem's manager] that Em had got the beat and that he’s fucking with it. A few months passed by, and I got a call from Paul. He wanted to meet me in the studio. He came and played Em’s verse, and I was blown away. “

  • Lana's baby

    I'm sorry but Iggy does not deserve to be on Billboard. I don't know what is going on, why is such a non-talent phony like her so popular? And why is such an atrocious song like "Fancy" on Billboard for so long? I'm starting to believe in the Illuminati now because if this is not proof, I don't know what is.

    • ANAbel

      Yall just jealous of the Female Tupac!!!!!

    • Qu3_Pid

      i agree 110% with you! The only reason its charting for so long, is becuz the chorus is soooooo catchy! Her actual lyrics are blah and not intriguing honestly. i like iggy but she's not the "it" girl. but whateva lol

    • ITo

      The difference is them bitches were not on the HIP HOP charts. I dont have anything against Lady Gaga, that girl can sing. Even though her music is not my flavor, I recognize talent. Katy perry and miley cyrus can't sing for shit

    • Anonymous

      whats the difference between iggys song and a katy perry, lady gaga or miley cyrus song that was topping billboard?

  • HipHopIsDead

    Here are Iggy's lyrics to Fancy and let me know what you think I said, "Baby, I do this, I thought that you knew this." Can't stand no haters and honest, the truth is And my flow retarded, each beat did depart it Swagger on stupid, I can't shop in no department To get my money on time, if they not money, decline And swear I meant that there so much that they give that line a rewind So get my money on time, if they not money, decline I just can't worry 'bout no haters, gotta stay on my grind Now tell me, who that, who that? That do that, do that? Put that paper over all, I thought you knew that, knew that I be the I-G-G-Y, put my name in bold I been working, I'm up in here with some change to throw

    Busta is only in the top 10 because of Eminem !! If not for Marshall mathers he would not be on the list

      sad to say it but its true. lotta rappers from bustas era spitting just as hard and selling no singles or album but they would be on here if they had a dope em feature.

    • One

      I choose to think not. We hear Lil' Wayne majority of the time on radio when it comes to rap artist. Busta doesn't come out as much so to hear him get on the mic is something good. This is a case of quality music at the right time when all other singles are slightly shit. And let's just say Em wasn't on it. It would still be banger. There is no Iggy fans(not that I know of). Jason Derulo is a singer who collabs come out decent. Nicki is just well.... Nicki. You like her or you hate her.

    wordonthecurb is a success because of sexy undiscovered stars like sweetheartz the rapper. I would like to get to hear more from her. Before I just write her off as a racist white whore. Which I'm prone to female rappers. But she actually spits it hard on the remix/playlist you made @Sheartz . https://soundcloud.com/sheartzone/sets/can-ya-who I got it from your profile

  • Sheartz

    Doesnt matter yall f#cked it up a while ago concentrating on sales, they gonna keep talking sales

    • CAL Boss

      The hip hop community only judges by statistics because overall talent level is questionable. We only care about how much sales artists are raking in, what kind of cars they drive, how much their chains are worth, how many people they bodied, how tough their crew is (until it's not very tough then we say there should be a one on one fight), etc.
