Hot 100: Iggy’s “Black Widow” Goes Top 20, Tove Lo’s “Habits” Top 40

Iggy Azalea [ABC]

She no longer has the number one song in the country, but Iggy Azalea still has a strong presence on the Billboard Hot 100.

2014’s breakthrough pop star has three songs in the chart’s top 20. Her “Fancy (featuring Charli XCX)” is still impressive at #3, her “Problem” collaboration with Ariana Grande holds at #5 and her new single “Black Widow (featuring Rita Ora)” rockets into the #19 slot.

Up ten places from last week, “Black Widow” continues its rapid ascent into dominance. And once its hotly anticipated video debuts, its dramatic rise will likely become even more impressive.

Grande, whose “Problem” features a rap verse from Azalea, also claims three songs in the Hot 100. In addition to that #5 tune, she also appears alongside Jessie J and Nicki Minaj on #6 song “Bang Bang” and with Zedd on her new, #18 single “Break Free.”

— New to the top 40 this week is Tove Lo’s “Habits (Stay High).” The song, which remains a buzzworthy attraction and continues to slowly gain at radio, climbs four spots to claim the #40 position.
