(RNN) – If you've been singing “I'm so fancy” all summer, there's good reason. Billboard declared the debut hit by Iggy Azalea as this year's song of the summer.

Azalea's recognizable voice and Fancy's catchy beat boosted the song to the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Song of the Summer chart at the end of May and it was an automatic shutdown. The song never even came close to budging, so when the contest ended on Sept. 21 there was no question who the winner was - I-G-G-Y.

The runner-up may come as a bit of a surprise though. The No. 2 spot was snagged by another debut artist, MAGIC!. The four-member Canadian reggae fusion band's hit song Rude beat out Azalea's other popular song with Ariana Grande, Problem, which is No. 3.

Sam Smith's emotional ballad Stay With Me is No. 4 and Nico & Vinz's Am I Wrong is No. 5.

Two other songs that made airwaves a significant amount this summer, All of Me by John Legend and Happy by Pharrell Williams also charted. All of Me came in at No. 6 and Happy at No. 8. Wiggle by Jason Derulo and featuring Snoop Dog wedged between the two popular hits at No. 7.

Rounding out the bottom of the top 10 songs of the summer are Summer by Calvin Harris at No. 9 and Turn Down For What by DJ Snake and Lil Jon at No. 10.

Billboard's Song of the Summer chart is based on each song's cumulative performance on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The rankings are determined by a number of factors including radio airplay and Nielsen BDS' measurements of audience impressions, sales data and streaming activity data from online music sources.
