Iggy Azalea surprised her NY fans yesterday by bringing out T.I. and Trae tha Truth at her sold-out show at the Bowery Ballroom — but before that she swung by Sway in the Morning and explained why she titled her debut "The New Classic" and her desire to pursue rap.
She also revealed that the album is due in September.
The Australian MC plans to release the album worldwide at the same time. “It will probably be the first week in September,” she said. “Fortunately for me, I have a great problem to have, which is that I’m trying to figure out an international release date so it can release in every country at the same time.”
The project has already spawned the singles “Work” (and “Bounce” out in European markets next month) and next up is “Change Your Life” featuring T.I. “It’s a big record,” Iggy told Rap-Up TV. “I think it will be good to have T.I. on that single and just show that we’re together, we’re still family. It’s definitely not me trying to make my silent exit from Hustle Gang.”
The album may also feature a collaboration with Rihanna called “Designer Drugs.” “It sounds like if someone was playing an acoustic guitar, but then you went out into a tepee in the middle of the desert and got really drunk and started hallucinating,” she said.
This Grand Hustler also weighs in on twerking and whether her butt is real or fake. During her visit to Sway, she also freestyled about her ex-boyfriend.
