Iggy Azalea #1 and #2 on Billboard, Far Ways To Go To Catch Beatles Record

From Billboard:

Iggy Azalea continues her record-tying run at the chart’s top two spots, as, for a third week, “Fancy” and “Problem” rank at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively. Previously, only the Beatles held the Hot 100’s top two rungs simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 entries: On the Feb. 22, 1964, chart, the Fab Four’s “I Want to Hold Your Hand” stayed at No. 1 while “She Loves You” pushed 3-2. Azalea has a ways to go before matching how long the Beatles controlled the top two; they logged 10 straight weeks occupying (at least) both Nos. 1 and 2 at the same time, through April 25, 1964, as “Hand” and “She” placed at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, for four weeks; they then reversed ranks for two weeks; for the next four frames, “Can’t Buy Me Love” ruled, while “Twist and Shout” was No. 2.

(Not that the feat seems to be flooring the even-keeled Azalea. “It doesn’t mean anything,” the Australian rapper revealed in the June 14 Billboard magazine cover story. “I’d rather be the Rolling Stones,” she ribbed.)
