Iggy Azalea: "Fancy" Reaches Number 1 on Billboard Hot 100; Rapper Ties Record Set By The Beatles!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The jury is still out as to whether or not Iggy Azalea is a racist, but one thing is for sure - the Aussie rapper's offensive tweets have definitely not hampered the sales of her smash single, "Fancy."

According to Billboard magazine, not only does Iggy have the number one song of the week, her cameo on Ariana Grande's "Problem" makes her the first artist since The Beatles to hold down the number one and number two spots at the same time. 

Not bad for a 23-year-old from Down Under.

As a white, female, non-American rapper, Iggy has been faced with a fair share of haters. In one ugly incident earlier this month, Odd Future rapper Tyler the Creator said Iggy "stinks" while appearing on the popular BET series 106 & Park.

We think achieving a feat that no one had accomplished since The Beatles did it over 50 years ago gives Iggy the right to declare herself the winner of that feud. 

By way of commenting on her monumental achievement, Iggy simply posted a tweet that read, "Number one."

When you're really killin' it, sometimes you don't need to brag.

Frankly, we think the popularity of Iggy's hit single was helped along by one of our favorite viral videos in recent weeks. Check out the awesome dad, daughter lip dub of "Fancy" below:
