Iggy Azalea Matches The Beatles US Chart Record

Iggy Azalea Matches The Beatles US Chart Record

Share

Iggy Azalea has matched The Beatles' US chart record by hitting numbers one and two simultaneously with her first two Hot 100 hits.

The rapper's 'Fancy' featuring Charli XCX rose from 2 to top the chart, while her guest slot on Ariana Grande's 'Problem' jumped from number three to number two.


Although 15 acts in history have held the top two in the chart, Azalea and the Fab Four are the only acts to achieve this feat with their first two Hot 100 hits.

The Beatles managed it on February 22, 1964, when 'I Want to Hold Your Hand' held its number one position and 'She Loves You' rose one spot to two following the band's famous appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show earlier that month.


Those singles held the top two between them for six weeks, and on April 4 The Beatles recorded all top five singles in the Hot 100.

'Can't Buy Me Love' topped the chart, followed by 'Twist and Shout', with 'She Loves You' dropping to third, 'I Want to Hold Your Hand' at four and 'Please Please Me' at 5.
