Iggy Azalea ruled the charts with "Fancy" and she's got her eye on the silver screen next. Azalea filmed a cameo in Fast & Furious 7, co-star Vin Diesel revealed in an interview promoting his other film, Guardians of the Galaxy.

Diesel was asked to pick a favorite dance selection between Jason Derulo's "Wiggle," Azalea's "Fancy" and "Problem" by Ariana Grande, featuring the Aussie spitter. "Iggy Azalea. I just worked with her two weeks ago," he said. "I guess you're the first person that knows this, we casted her in Fast & Furious 7. She has a cameo."

Prior to the movie announcement, the news was only speculation. Michelle Rodriguez tweeted a set photo with Azalea three weeks ago, writing, "Azealia [sic] nice workin with you, love to see you in concert. Respect yesterday's set was so hot in the desert, You Rock." Azalea Instagrammed a shot with Rodriguez around the same time. 

Azalea's role in the film has been reported as a "Hot Drag Race Chick."

The 24-year-old isn't the only rapper to guest star in the Fast & Furious franchise. Bow Wow, Ludacris and Ja Rule have all appeared in previous films. 

Fast & Furious 7 drives into theaters next April.
