There Is A Petition To Take Away Iggy Azalea's "Top Rap Song" Award

People think the singer wasn't eligible for the Billboard Music Award.

Earlier this month, Iggy Azalea was awarded Top Rap Song at the Billboard Music Awards.


She won the award for "Fancy," which featured English singer Charli XCX.

The Australian performer also won Top Rap Artist and Top Streaming Artist.


She was up against J. Cole, Drake, Rae Sremmurd, and Nicki Minaj for Top Rap Artist, and Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor, and Nicki Minaj again for Top Streaming Artist.

But some people thought it was unfair for Iggy to have won Top Rap Song, and a petition has been started to retract the award. / Via

According to the petition, "Fancy" shouldn't have been nominated because it was released "before the eligibility starting" and therefore was "unfair to the other nominees".

The petition currently has more than 15,000 supporters. / Via

It also received over 5,000 signatures within 24 hours.

An array of supporters believe Nicki Minaj's track "Anaconda" would have won if "Fancy" wasn't nominated.

According to the Billboard Music Awards website, finalists are based on "key fan interactions with music" rather than release dates.

Regardless, "Fancy" is still one of the best-selling singles of all time.

The song achieved more than 4 million track sales and is easily Iggy's biggest hit to date.
