Two Australians, one who celebrated her assets in the public eye and one who hid hers behind a paper bag, are among the ten videos we watched on YouTube this year.
Iggy Azalea’s clip for Fancy topped the list of filmclips Australians watched most through 2014 while fellow Australian Sia, whose face is never seen in the clip, came in at number six for the video for her huge hit, Chandelier.
It probably is no surprise that not only have Azalea and Sia both been among the year’s best sellers and now most watched but they have earned multiple Grammy Award nominations ahead of next year’s awards presentation.

As a sign that singing about and eulogising backsides was the music trend of the year – YouTube’s not wholly scientific estimation is that the top 10 videos were played “billions of times” through the year – Azalea’s sometime partner in rhyme, Nicki Minaj, was the second most watched artist on YouTube for her literally arse-shaking clip Anaconda.

Meanwhile, Azalea reappears on the list at No.7 for her collaboration with Ariana Grande, Problem. This amplifies another eye-catching element of this list: all but one video, that for the Chainsmokers’ club banger, #Selfie, is for a song by a female artist.
Rounding out the list are Katy Perry (twice – Dark Horse and This Is How We Do), Shakira (Can’t Remember to Forget You), Meghan Trainor (All about That Bass) and the late arriving but already year-defining Shake It Off from Taylor Swift.

1. Iggy Azalea – Fancy (Explicit) ft. Charli XCX

Iggy Azalea and Nick Jonas have both had a full and massively successful 2014. Iggy became a household name and one of the music industry’s hottest tickets, while Nick launched his solo career since his days in the Jonas Brothers and went platinum with his single “Jealous.”

Now as 2014 is coming to a close, the two are looking forward to a busy 2015, including hitting the road together on Iggy’s scheduled tour.

The announcement was made on twitter when Iggy posted, “”what I’m trying to say is: @nickjonas is my special guest on tour next year.”

Nick replied with, “@IGGYAZALEA let’s do this.”

This could be one of the more random tour match ups, but we won’t be surprised when every dates sells out because of both names on the bill.

Iggy Azalea has taken to her Twitter account to address the Ferguson and Eric Garner issues after Azealia Banks called her out for remaining silent on the topic.

“its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen… Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren’t huh?” Azealia wrote on Wednesday evening (December 3).

“ I see all hell broke loose while I was at rehearsals today,” Iggy tweeted soon after and then returned to Twitter a few hours later with a very well-thought out response.

Iggy Azalea, Lorde, Meghan Trainor and Taylor Swift complement each other perfectly in DJ Earworm’s giddy, just-released “United State of Pop 2014” mash-up. As usual, the California producer’s annual pop mega mix combines 25 of the biggest hits of the past calendar year, including the above singers’ “Fancy,” “Team,” “All About That Bass” and, of course, “Shake It Off,” respectively. It also features snippets of DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What,” Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera’s “Say Something” and Magic!’s “Rude” among many others.

“The thing that has been most notable in the past two or three years is the decline of EDM,” Earworm told Billboard, which premiered the new mix. “The ‘United State of Pop’ became this dance track from ’09 to ’12, and then starting last year, there just wasn’t enough in that genre to fully support it, so I went down-tempo.

“And this year, ‘Timber,’ which was popular in January, is the only popular dance track I’m dealing with,” he continued. “It’s definitely down-tempo, so you have to decide, how is this going to go? How am I going to maintain the energy levels while being true to the sound of the year?”

The producer, who has been making the annual mash-up since 2007, called this year’s the “most blended instrumental I’ve been able to achieve yet.” Last year’s mix featured tracks by everyone from Avicii to Miley Cyrus, while the previous year’s blended Adele with Flo Rida. Ultimately, he described the 2014 mix as being “more diverse” and “definitely softer” than previous installments.
