Iggy Azalea matches The Beatles' US chart record
The Australian rapper has taken the top two spots in the Billboard Hot 100
'Fancy', featuring British pop singer Charli XCX, is currently at Number One in the Stateside chart, whilst Ariana Grande's single 'Problem', which features a guest appearance from Iggy Azalea, is at Number Two. The last act to achieve this feat was The Beatles in February 1964, with 'I Want to Hold Your Hand' at Number One and 'She Loves You' at Number Two.
Last week Iggy Azalea apologised to fans after she was forced to halt a live performance of 'Fancy' on US TV claiming she had a problem with her earpiece. Azalea, who released her debut album 'The New Classic' last month, was performing alongside Charli XCX on Dancing With The Stars when the mistake occurred. Walking down a flight of stairs, she appears to start her first verse too early and is subsequently crashed by pre-recorded vocals.
Stopping the performance, she is heard saying, "I'm so sorry but there's something wrong with my ears." She then removed the earpiece entirely and continued the performance without any technical assistance. Tweeting after the performance, Azalea apologised to fans and again blamed her equipment for the mistakes. "I am so sorry guys! My in ears messed up and I couldn't hear the track," she wrote. "The dramas of live TV. Shit happens. Still really enjoyed it."
