Iggy Azalea has become the second artist ever to top the 'Hot 100' in America at number 1 and number 2 with her first two singles, following in the hallowed footsteps of the Beatles.

The Australian rapper's debut single 'Fancy' has risen from second spot on the chart to the number one position, while Ariana Grande's "Problem", which boasts Azalea as a featured artists, has risen to the second spot.

Azalea joins the Beatles as the only other artist to rank number one and two simultaneously on the 'Hot 100' with their first two releases. The Beatles were the first to claim that achievement, back in 1964.

Since the lipdub cover of her hit single by a father and daughter went viral, Azalea has been posting cover videos of the song to her Facebook page, which has over 1.7m 'likes' - creating a 'Fancy' meme.
