Iggy Azalea’s ‘Black Widow’ Hits No.1 on Pop Songs

Iggy Azalea is winning again with "Black Widow," her third breakthrough hit, featuring Rita Ora. The single, also following songs like "Mediocre," just hit no.1 on the Pop Songs chart.

According to Billboard, this is a major feat for Azalea, whose "Fancy" and collaboration with Ariana Grande, on "Problem," also reached the summit on the chart.

"Iggy Azalea becomes just the fourth artist in the Pop Songs radio airplay chart's 21-year history to send her first three chart entries to No. 1, as "Black Widow" (featuring Rita Ora) steps 2-1. The song follows her first charted hit, "Fancy" (featuring Charli XCX), which led for three weeks in June/July, and "Problem" by Ariana Grande featuring Azalea; the latter led for two weeks in July – and knocked "Fancy" out of the top spot. Azalea is the first act to go three-for-three out-of-the-gate since Lady Gaga sent a record six career-opening titles to No. 1 in 2009-10. The other two acts to earn the honor with three each: Avril Lavigne (2002-03) and Ace of Base (1994). (Ora, meanwhile, earns her first Pop Songs No. 1.)," reports Billboard.

"Black Widow" has also reached no.1 on the Rhythmic Songs chart.
