Iggy Azalea edges a week closer to Missy Elliott's rap chart record

Iggy Azalea is closing in on another chart record as her Fancy hit lands a 16th week at the top of the Hot Rap Songs countdown.

The Australian star became the first act to score a one-two punch at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 countdown with debuts Fancy and Problem, her collaboration with Ariana Grande, and now she's two weeks away from tying Missy Elliott's 18-week stand at the top of the Hot Rap Songs list.

Azalea was tied at 15 weeks with Drake's Best I Ever Had, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' Thrift Shop, and Pitbull and Kesha's Timber, but now she has edged closer to Elliott's record-breaking, chart-topping run with Hot Boyz in 1999.
