Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap,” Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow” Rise on Hot 100

While their blockbuster “Fancy” is no longer number one on this week’s Billboard Hot 100, both Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX enjoy gains for their follow-up efforts.

“Boom Clap,” Charli XCX’s breakthrough solo offering, rises to a new peak of #16 on this week’s edition of the chart. A consistent digital seller and a strong gainer at radio, the song should continue to rise in the coming weeks.

Iggy Azalea’s follow-up track “Black Widow,” which features Rita Ora, also hits a new peak this week. Fueled by a 118% increase to 41,000 weekly sales, “Black Widow” surges to #65 on the Hot 100. It was #97 last week.

The chart leader for seven consecutive weeks, “Fancy” this week slips to #2 on Billboard’s all-encompassing single track chart. MAGIC!’s breakthrough “Rude” takes over #1.
