Crawling out of obscurity, Australian rapper Iggy Azalea is making her presence known. Her single "Fancy" has become a hit, sitting at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100, while she is also featured on the No. 2 song "Problem" by Ariana Grande.

This makes her only the second artist, behind the Beatles, to hold the Top 2 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 with songs that are first-time hits. The Beatles were the first to do so when hitting the scene with their songs "I Want to Hold Your Hands" (No. 1) and "She Loves You" (No. 2).

Azalea's single "Fancy" is the lead track off of her album The New Classic, which currently sits at No. 9 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums. The song featurs vocals by UK singer Charli XCX and the video and references the movie "Clueless." 

What an entrance! Is this a sign of Iggy's upcoming success? I guess we'll just have to wait and see! If she's new to you, go ahead and make yourself more acquainted by watching the "Fancy" music video below.
