Since Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj started battling each other at the top of the charts, everyone from the fans and the press to rap enthusiasts everywhere have argued over who rules as the new queen of hip hop. According to the current rankings in Fuse's Top 40 of 2014, Nicki is slaying her rival, with voters choosing "Anaconda" over "Fancy" more than two-thirds of the time.

But there's still a week left for Azaleans to edge out the Barbz and prove their MC is the reigning queen of rap. Round 1 voting ends next Monday, October 27, at 6PM ET and there's tons of time to rack up votes. So, hurry up and vote here!

And don't forget that even if your fave loses out on this round, if she earns enough votes, she could return as a Wildcard in Round 3. Find out more about how Wildcards work right here

Keep voting for Nicki or Iggy in the battle to be named best video of the year. (Or maybe you can't decide, and you need to give a vote to both!) And keep checking back to Fuse for the latest updates and standings.
