Iggy Azalea Biography (Wikipedia)

Amethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea (born 7 June 1990), is an Australian rapper. Born in Sydney and raised in Mullumbimby, she moved to the United States at the age of sixteen to pursue a career in hip-hop music, residing in the southern part of the country. Her stage name, from the masculine Egnatius, comes from the name of her dog and the street she lived on. She earned public recognition after releasing music videos for her songs "Pu$$y" and "Two Times" on YouTube. She signed a recording contract with Grand Hustle Records in 2012; which is owned by American rapper T.I., after gaining attention from her first full-length project, a mixtape titled Ignorant Art.

Azalea's debut studio album, The New Classic (2014), peaked among the top five of several charts worldwide and received generally mixed reviews. It topped the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums making Azalea the first non-American female rapper to reach the top of the chart. The album was preceded by her debut single "Work", and generated the US Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping single "Fancy". Azalea was featured on Ariana Grande's single "Problem", which peaked at No. 2 while "Fancy" was #1; Azalea joined The Beatles as the only acts to rank at numbers one and two simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 entries. She achieved three top ten hits simultaneously on the Hot 100 with the aforementioned songs along with the fifth single from the album "Black Widow", later that year.
