In ascending on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart, Iggy Azalea matches a feat only previously achieved by The Beatles.
According to Billboard, Azalea’s “Fancy (featuring Charli XCX)” reaches #1 on this week’s definitive single track chart. Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” on which Azalea is credited as a featured act, hits #2.
Not since The Beatles has an artist held the number one and number two positions with her first two songs on the chart.
The iconic foursome achieved that feat when its “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “She Loves You” held the chart’s top two spots in 1964.
Azalea, meanwhile, is the fifteenth artist to achieve that feat with any two tracks and one of only three females to do so. Mariah Carey and Ashanti are the other two.
Azalea, Charli XCX and Grande were not, however, the only acts to enjoy gains on the Billboard Hot 100.
Buzzworthy Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz ascends into the Top 10 with their smash “Am I Wrong.” The track, which was number seventeen last week, vaults to #8 this week.
Jason DeRulo, meanwhile, arrives in the top ten (at #10) with his latest single “Wiggle (featuring Snoop Dogg).”
