Iggy Azalea Scores Billboard Magazine Cover
With a wealth of interviews and TV appearances popping up, it seems that Iggy Azalea is all over the place these days. As her ubiquitous presence continues, she’s scored the cover of Billboard magazine, which makes perfect sense.
Chart-wise, the Australian lyricist has dominated — she even broke a 50-year-old record by having two songs in the No. 1 and No. 2 positions on the Billboard Hot 100. Her song ‘Fancy,’ featuring Charli XCX, hit No. 1, and Ariana Grande’s ‘Problems,’ on which she’s featured, scored the No. 2 position at the same time. That feat hasn’t been accomplished since the Beatles in 1964.
On the cover, the blonde beauty sports a multicolored bejeweled top, which shows off her toned frame. She gives a deep stare into the camera while her hands clutch her hips. ‘The New Classic’ creator not only looks ultra sexy, but she clearly exudes a look of confidence, making the cover shot really stand out.
And it seems Iggy is pretty excited too, as she posted the cover on her Instagram account. “Hey guys, I’m on the cover of Billboard,” she wrote. “Thanks for all the support. Never really saw this being possible and here we are. I appreciate it very much.”
The Billboard photo was just posted on Instagram yesterday (June 5), but it already has a whopping 296,000 likes, proving just how admired the Hustle Gang affiliate is.
By landing on the highly coveted cover and having two simultaneously chart-topping singles, as well as a top 10 album, this could very well be the summer of Iggy Azalea. At least that’s the way it’s shaping up so far.
