Back in April, Iggy revealed she would release her forthcoming album Digital Distortion in the first week of June. There's been an update! The Australia rapper confirmed in her new interview on the Zach Sang Show it's now June 30. We're holding her to it.
“I think it’s supposed to be June 30th or 31st,” Iggy said before later clarifying it will in fact drop June 30. "And for what its worth, the 30th does fall on a Friday, album release day so it does align," she said.
In the 30-minute chat, Iggy also opened up about her wild ride of a year since splitting with ex-fiance Nick Young, if she feels accepted by the hip-hop community and her new collaboration with Brazilian pop star on "Switch."
"'Switch' is a song that I recorded back in early August and I loved it," Azalea said. "I couldn't think of who can sing on this song with me because I just really wanted to bring another female energy. I didn't really have any female collaborations yet on my album. I think people really enjoyed me collaborating with other women and I wanted to make sure that I still did that. I was thinking, 'Who can go on there?' I couldn't really find anybody."
She explained how it came to be. "A friend of mine said, 'Hey, have you seen this girl Anitta? She's from Brazil, but she's huge over there. She's really cool. She has these awesome live shows where she dances like crazy.' I checked her out on YouTube and I was like, 'Wow. She's amazing.' So, I hit her up and asked if she would be interested in doing the song and it just kind of worked out perfectly."
The video for their track leaked ahead of schedule over the weekend. Iggy addressed the situation and said she isn't sure if it will get an official release any more.
