Below, check out President Obama "singing" the songs of the summer, Fancy by Iggy Azalea.
Australian recording artist Iggy Azalea first gained recognition after the respective music videos for her controversial songs "Pu$$y" and "Two Times" went viral on YouTube. In September 2011, she released her debut mixtape Ignorant Art and subsequently aligned herself with Atlanta-based rapper T.I.
Her debut studio album The New Classic was finally released on 21 April 2014, under Virgin EMI and Def Jam Recordings. The album debuted inside the top five of several charts worldwide and received generally mixed reviews. The album was preceded by four singles, "Work", "Bounce", "Change Your Life" (featuring T.I.) and "Fancy" (featuring Charli XCX). "Fancy" went on to reach number one on the US Billboard Hot 100chart, with Azalea becoming only the fourth solo female rapper ever to top the Hot 100.
Additionally, with Azalea featured on Ariana Grande's single "Problem", which rose to number two on the Hot 100, the same week "Fancy" topped the chart, Azalea joined English rock band The Beatles, as the only acts to rank at numbers one and two simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 hits.
