On the 21st April, Australian sensation Iggy Azalea will be releasing her long-awaited debut album ‘The New Classic’, following a fairly extraordinary year that has seen her garner two Top 20 singles, over 1Million followers on Instagram and YouTube views totaling 50Million.
For a pre-album artist, these statistics are pretty staggering, but then so is Azalea’s music (and, it has to be said, her visuals). She first burst onto the scene with the track Work, accompanied by a high-octane video that sent social media into a frenzy. Her track Pu$$y was yet another viral sensation, and Change Your Life (featuring rapper T.I.) made it into the Top 10 in the UK.
With production credits including Timbaland, writing by the likes of pop phenomenon Katy Perry, and guest vocals from Rita Ora and dancehall legend Mavado, this album looks set for success. Azalea has given herself a lot of hype to live up to, but given her unstoppable climb thus far, she has reason to be sure of herself. We have a good feeling about this one…
