Who dat? Who dat? I-G-G-Y!
Remember that name, because our girl Iggy hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 overnight with ‘Fancy’ (ft Charlie XCX), making her the first Australian woman to top the chart in 33 years. The last Aussie woman to reach #1 was Olivia Newton-John in 1981 with her smash hit ‘Physical’.
With the help of Ariana Grande, Igs also joins The Beatles as the only act to simultaneously take the crown for the #1 and #2 spots on the charts. Huge news for a small town Australian girl, but that’s not all. She’s also now one of only four solo female rappers to nab the number one spot, along with Lauryn Hill, Lil’ Kim and Shawnna.
