Australian rapper Iggy Azalea is enjoying the success of her single “Fancy,” featuring Charlie XCX off her debut album The New Classic, but she’s definitely not resting on her laurels as she’s said to be considering a few collaborations with talented artists in the future. Her mentor T.I. was recently on the radio and mentioned that Azalea was planning to collaborate with rapper queen bees Lil’ Kim and Remy Ma.
“I got a call from [Lil’] Kim. Kim hit me and said it’s time to find that record to get it done,” he said of the planned collaboration between Kim and Azalea. Meanwhile, he said that Azalea is also a big fan of Remy Ma and is eager to support her by working together.

Azalea is still hard at work even with the news that her single “Fancy” has reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Since Azalea is also featured on the song at the No. 2 spot, Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” she is the only artist other than The Beatles to take the two top spots of the charts at the same time. Previously, The Beatles had done the same with “She Loves You” and “I Want To Hold Your Hand” in 1964.

The single is also approaching the record for longest-running No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart, which is still held by Missy Elliot’s “Hot Boyz” featuring Nas, Eve and Q-Tip. “Hot Boyz” was No. 1 on the chart for 18 weeks, but it’s followed closely by Azalea’s “Fancy,” which has been on top for 16 weeks. Azalea performed the single as well as another one from The New Classic called “Work” at the TODAY plaza on Friday, August 8. “This song, ‘Fancy,’ has really changed my life,” said the singer on the show.
