Iggy Azalea Ruled Vevo in 2014

/ Dec 3, 2014

Iggy Azalea Fancy Video

Now that MTV’s busy with all its reality shows, Vevo (and its many viewers) have taken up the task of ranking the most popular music videos of 2014 in the US.

According to the music video service, Iggy Azalea ruled 2014 with her “Clueless”-themed video, “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX. Vevo has acknowledged Iggy’s reign for a while, now, having had her headline the company’s first Certified SuperFanFest event (with Demi Lovato, who doesn’t make this list) back in October.

Other unsurprising additions to Vevo’s 2014 most watched music videos list include Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, and Ariana Grande (ft. Iggy Azalea). Miley Cyrus, who came out on top last year, didn’t cut it in 2014. And yes, men made the list, as well. Here’s who, keeping in mind that the rankings are based on US view counts only across Vevo, AOL, Yahoo, YouTube, and other platforms (but global ones are provided, as well):
