Spotify unearthed some startling details regarding Iggy Azalea’s new song, “Savior,” featuring Quavo.

The streaming giant rolled out a new feature today (Feb. 2). Listeners using Spotify on their desktop can now right click on a track to show a song’s writing credits.

“At launch, we’re showing information we have from record label-provided metadata, and will also display the source of the credits so you know where it’s coming from,” Spotify said in a statement on their website. “We realize some of the label-provided credits are incomplete or may contain inaccuracies, but this is just the first step in displaying songwriter credits on Spotify. The feature will continually evolve to become more efficient, provide better functionality, and incorporate more information from industry partners over time.”

“Songwriters are an integral force behind the music we love,” said Tiffany Kumar, Global Head of Songwriter Relations, Spotify. “With the newly launched credits feature, we aim to increase songwriter and producer visibility and, in turn, foster discovery among new collaborators, industry partners, and fans.”

“The more we share information, the more opportunities we can help create for songwriters,” added Annika Goldman, ‎Director of Music Publishing Operations, Spotify. “This is just the beginning of making songwriter and producer credits more easily available to Spotify listeners, and we look forward to continually improving that information, in close collaboration with our music industry partners.”

Iggy Azalea denied Dr. Luke had any involvement creating her new song, “Savior,” but according to the data on Spotify, he indeed does. You can read Iggy’s denial here.

Here’s a screen capture I personally took off of my updated Spotify account (Lukasz Gottwald):

It’s worth mentioning his name initially appeared on lyrics website Genius on Thursday, but was later retracted. It appears they were onto something. 

In a behind-the-scenes video, Iggy opened up about writing the song. “It is not a record about you needing a man or a woman to come and save you in a relationship,” Iggy said in a new behind-the-scenes clip (see below). “It’s about you being your own savior and finding your own strength within yourself to figure it the f–k out.”

She adds: “It’s a really hard record for me to have written and I think it’s going to be one I really struggle to perform to just cause I’ll probably want to cry every single time. Even though it’s emotionally vulnerable and stripped back, I’m still going to be a fancy diva.”

Iggy made it very clear Dr. Luke, who is embroiled in a sexual assault lawsuit with Kesha, did NOT work with her on “Savior.” Either the metadata submitted to Spotify is incorrect, or they just exposed her.

  1. No way would she work with him. Espec
    ially being friends with Kesha and trying to shed light on many of the issues females face in the industry. My bet is wrong information like normal, and people trying to stir the pot behind the scenes.

  2. I actually love the lyrics, but find the beat a bit dull.
    And who cares if he wrote it. It’s more than likely Ke$ha lied about a lot of the things as she hasn’t been able to prove anything and also gave inconsistent responses. While he stood his ground with his family. They also offered her what she wanted and she didn’t take it. So it’s obvious she’s in it for the money but playing victim. But regardless who’s guilty and who’s not, it’s not fair to bash anyone until proven guilty. Especially in today’s day and age where everyone easily points fingers at people and instantly becomes a victim.

    1. You’re accusing Kesha of a crime- making false statements to police. So much for “innocent until proven guilty”. You also basically proclaimed Doctor Luke innocent without having all the facts.
