Update: The first wave of sales estimates is here. As expected, Iggy Azalea is currently in the lead among newcomers.
She has put in the “Work.” And as a result, the things in Iggy Azalea’s life are about to get “Fancy.”

Riding immense buzz from her new single “Fancy (featuring Charli XCX),” which presently sits at #11 on the iTunes Single Sales chart, #25 on Mediabase’s rolling Top 40 Airplay chart and #37 on Billboard’s Hot 100, Iggy Azalea has cruised to the top of iTunes’ Album Sales chart.

“The New Classic,” her debut studio release, surged to number one on the digital retailer’s sales chart within moments of availability Tuesday. While the surge to #1 on iTunes does not mean “The New Classic” will dethrone the dominant “Frozen” soundtrack on the overall Billboard 200 sales chart, it does mean Iggy Azalea is moving records.

Currently number two, the aforementioned “Frozen” album leads new releases from Future (“Honest,” #3) and Neon Trees (“Pop Psychology,” #4) on the iTunes Chart. Luke Bryan’s enduring “Crash My Party” follows at number five.

Other top ten albums include Bethel Music’s “You Make Me Brave (Live)” (6), Lorde’s “Pure Heroine” (7), Jason DeRulo’s “Talk Dirty” (8), August Alsina’s “Testimony” (9) and Francesca Battistelli’s “If We’re Honest” (10).
