Iggy Azalea On Historic Billboard Run

Posted by Marco on 07/03/2014

Iggy Azalea makes history on the Billboard Hot 100, as "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, rewrites the record for the longest-leading No. 1 by a female rapper. With a sixth week at the summit, she passes Lil' Kim, who spent five weeks at No. 1 with the all-star collaboration "Lady Marmalade" in 2001.

Meanwhile, MAGIC!'s "Rude" rises 3-2, Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" reaches No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart and teen Vine star Shawn Mendes debuts at No. 24 on the Hot 100 with his first single "Life of the Party."

Let's run down all the key numbers behind the Hot 100's top 10 and more.

With her sixth week at No. 1, Azalea now stands alone atop the exclusive list of female rappers who've spent the most time in the lead. Here's an updated look at the mere four such No. 1s, ranked by most weeks on top:

6 weeks, "Fancy," Iggy Azalea featuring Charli XCX, 2014

5 weeks, "Lady Marmalade," Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya and P!nk, 2001

2 weeks, "Doo Wop (That Thing)," Lauryn Hill, 1998

1 week, "Stand Up," Ludacris featuring Shawnna, 2003

"Fancy" continues its Hot 100 command with a third week at No. 1 on Radio Songs, although it decreases by 2 percent to 147 million in all-format audience, according to Nielsen BDS. It logs a seventh week at No. 1 on Streaming Songs, down by 5 percent to 11.1 million U.S. streams, according to BDS. On Digital Songs, "Fancy" drops 2-3 (after leading for four weeks until last week) with 178,000 downloads sold, down 9 percent, in the tracking week ending on June 29, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"Fancy" crowns the sales/airplay/streaming-based Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts for a sixth and 11th week, respectively. It also tops the Songs of the Summer ranking for a fifth week, remaining the only song that has ruled since the chart returned after Memorial Day.

Below "Fancy" on the Hot 100, Canadian pop/reggae foursome MAGIC! pushes 3-2 with its debut hit "Rude," which gains in all three of the chart's metrics. It dips 1-2 after a week atop Digital Songs, but gains by less than 1 percent to 210,000. "Rude" rises 5-4 on Radio Songs (123 million, up 14 percent) and bullets for a second week at No. 4 on Streaming Songs (7.3 million, up 7 percent).

Could "Rude," well, rudely, dethrone "Fancy" before long? It looks possible, as "Fancy" deflates by 5 percent in overall Hot 100 points and "Rude" grows by 6 percent. The former leads this week with a 14 percent points lead over the latter.

With "Rude" moving into the Hot 100's runner-up spot, Ariana Grande's "Problem," featuring Azalea, drops 2-3 after five weeks at its No. 2 highpoint. Azalea, thus, relinquishes her lock on the chart's top two ranks after five weeks, leaving her in a tie with Ashanti for the longest such run by a woman; Ashanti locked up Nos. 1 and 2 from April 20 through May 18, 2002, with her own "Foolish" and as a guest on Fat Joe's "What's Luv?"

Azalea also keeps behind the Beatles among acts that have spent the most time at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 entries. The Fab Four holds the record with 10 such weeks in a row in 1964.

Still, "Problem" has its sights set on the No. 1 spot on Radio Songs, where it bullets for a second week at No. 2. With a 2 percent gain to 145 million, it's just 2 million in audience below "Fancy." As previously reported, "Problem" climbs to No. 1 on both the Pop Songs and Rhythmic Songs airplay charts this week.

"Problem" falls from its No. 2 high to No. 3 on Streaming Songs (8.3 million, down 12 percent) and 3-4 on Digital Songs (153,000, down 6 percent), which it topped for three frames.
