Iggy Azalea Matches Historic Beatles Record

Iggy Azalea has reached a milestone enjoyed by The Beatles 50 years ago, after she has captures the top two spots on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with her first two Billboard hits.

This week Azalea's "Fancy" with Charlie XCX climbed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 while her collaboration with Ariana Grande, "Problem", is at No. 2.

This gives Azalea the distinction of matching the previous record held by the Beatles, which they set 50 years ago when their first two Billboard hits held the top two spots on the chart simultaneously.

Azalea reacted to the big news on Twitter. She tweeted, "Well I'm very pleased, last year seemed impossible to convince anyone in the music business I could break into the top 100. Haha."

A minute later she added, "So let this serve as proof anything is possible & I hope we see more female rappers new and established in the charts. Dope stuff, thanks!"
