Iggy Azalea Continues to Break Records As 'Fancy' Solidifies Its Claim to "Song of the Summer"


"Fancy" moves up among the longest Hot 100 reigns by women this decade.

Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, continues its Billboard Hot 100 command, spending a seventh week at No. 1. Meanwhile, Nico & Vinz's "Am I Wrong" crowns the Radio Songs chart; Maroon 5 reaches the Hot 100's top 10 with "Maps"; and, just outside the top tier, Ariana Grande and 5 Seconds of Summer soar in with their latest singles.

It's Wednesday, so time for our weekly rundown of the numbers behind the Hot 100's top 10 and more.

With her seventh week at No. 1, Azalea moves into a tie for fifth place among lead women who've scored the longest commands on the Hot 100 this decade. Here's an updated look at the smashes by women in lead roles in that span that have spent most time on top:

10 weeks, "We Found Love," Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris, 2011-12
9 weeks, "Royals," Lorde, 2013
9 weeks, "Call Me Maybe," Carly Rae Jepsen, 2012
9 weeks, "TiK ToK," Ke$ha, 2010
7 weeks, "Fancy," Iggy Azalea featuring Charli XCX, 2014
7 weeks, "Rolling in the Deep," Adele, 2011


"Fancy" has clearly joined elite company: Jepsen's "Maybe" became the top song of the summer of 2012, while Adele's "Deep" took the title as the Hot 100's No. 1 song of 2011. ("Fancy" passes two songs in the 2010s by lead women that each topped the Hot 100 for six weeks: Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" in 2011 and Katy Perry's "California Gurls," featuring Snoop Dogg, in 2010.)

"Fancy" maintains its Hot 100 domination with an eighth week at No. 1 on Streaming Songs (10.7 million U.S. streams, down 3 percent, according to Nielsen BDS). It departs the summit on Radio Songs after three weeks at No. 1 (1-3), down by 1 percent to 144 million in all-format audience, according to BDS. On Digital Songs, "Fancy" holds at No. 3 (after leading for four weeks) with 171,000 downloads sold (down 4 percent) in the tracking week ending on July 6, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"Fancy" crowns the sales/airplay/streaming-based Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts for a seventh and 12th week, respectively. It also tops the Songs of the Summer ranking for a sixth week, remaining the only song that has led since the annual seasonal list relaunched after Memorial Day.

Azalea also debuts on the Hot 100 at No. 97 with follow-up "Black Widow," featuring Rita Ora. The cut jumps 39-32 on Rhythmic Songs and enters the Pop Songs airplay chart at No. 36.
