Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” Remains On Top

This week, Busta Rhymes said that he had to wait for Eminem’s verse.

“My partner Shaheem Reid reached out to Riggs Morales, who was an A&R at Shady Records at the time,” Busta Rhymes said. “He came by the studio to hear the song, and two weeks later, we finally got a confirmation from Paul [Rosenberg, Eminem's manager] that Em had got the beat and that he’s fucking with it. A few months passed by, and I got a call from Paul. He wanted to meet me in the studio. He came and played Em’s verse, and I was blown away. “
