Fancy appeared on Azalea’s debut studio album, ‘The New Classic,’ which released that year as well. It peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart and is also at platinum status.

Azalea went on to release her sophomore album, ‘In My Defense,’ in the summer of 2019. While it didn’t match the success that The New Classic had, it still reached No. 50 on the Billboard 200 and was led by singles such as “Sally Walker,” “Started,” and “F*ck It Up” feat. Kash Doll. Azalea was originally signed to T.I.’s Grand Hustle record label but then the two had a fallout a few years ago. The two had a huge hit together in 2014 though as she was featured on his “No Mediocre” single that summer.

Playboi Carti has also been a star since the success of his breakout hit single, “Magnolia,” in 2017.He went on to release his debut studio album, ‘Die Lit,’ in 2018 as it reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200. It contained 19 tracks with features from Bryson Tiller, Nicki Minaj, Lil Uzi Vert, and more. Fans are now awaiting his highly anticipated ‘Whole Lotta Red’ album. He trended on social media heavily last month though due to his verse on Drake‘s new hit song “Pain 1993.” There were many mixed reactions due to him altering his voice.
Congrats to both Iggy Azalea and Playboi Carti. The two have been very low key on social media with their private lives and this is very understandable considering their statuses.
