Iggy Azalea Biography (Wikipedia)
Amethyst Amelia Kelly (born 7 June 1990), better known by her stage name Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, model and music video director. At the age of 16, Azalea moved to the United States to pursue a career in music. Azalea earned public recognition after releasing the viral music videos for her songs "Pussy" and "Two Times" on YouTube. Azalea signed a recording contract with American rapper T.I.'s label Grand Hustle shortly afterwards and released her debut mixtape, Ignorant Art (2011).
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 number two behind "Fancy". 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 album's fifth single, "Black Widow", later that year.
