Iggy Azalea makes history on the Billboard Hot 100, as “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX, sets a record for the longest-leading No. 1 by a female rapper.

With a sixth week on top, she passes Lil’ Kim, who spent five weeks at No. 1 with the all-star collaboration “Lady Marmalade” in 2001.

Azalea now stands alone atop the short list of female rappers who’ve spent the most weeks at No. 1:

6 weeks, “Fancy,” Iggy Azalea featuring Charli XCX, 2014

5 weeks, “Lady Marmalade,” Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya and P!nk, 2001

2 weeks, “Doo Wop (That Thing),” Lauryn Hill, 1998

1 week, “Stand Up,” Ludacris featuring Shawnna, 2003

“Fancy” continues its Hot 100 command with a third week at No. 1 on Radio Songs, although it decreases by 2 percent to 147 million in all-format audience, according to Nielsen BDS.

It logs a seventh week at No. 1 on Streaming Songs, down by 5 percent to 11.1 million U.S.

streams, according to BDS. On Digital Songs, “Fancy” drops 2-3 (after leading for four weeks until last week) with 178,000 downloads sold, down 9 percent, in the tracking week ending on June 29, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

“Fancy” crowns the sales/airplay/streaming-based Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts for a sixth and 11th week, respectively. It also tops the Songs of the Summer ranking for a fifth week, remaining the only song that has ruled since the chart returned after Memorial Day.
