Iggy Azalea Feels Defeated Because Of Chart Performance

August 1, 2019 By Jordan Miller

Iggy Azalea has her eye on the prize, but the numbers are clouding her vision.

Chart placement does not equal success, however once you’ve tasted what a No. 1 feels like, it’s hard not to want it again.

Iggy Azalea is continually chart chasing because, in some ways, it validates all the hard work and money she pours into her craft. Despite knowing better… Iggy still feels defeated by the numbers.

The Australian rapper recently released her new album, In My Defense, and it failed to make major waves on the charts. It peaked at No. 50 on the Billboard 200 chart in the US and No. 52 in Australia. Iggy took to Twitter to vent her frustrations.

“As long as I do better each time I try to achieve something, I keep on going,” she said. “A mile a head would be great! but all I need is an inch forward for me to know I’m aiming in the right direction.”

She added: “Two weeks till I’m back in the Studio! Woke up today feeling a little defeated, ending the day feeling motivated.”

“I think sometimes I feel defeated because I look at the chart and see how much streaming impacts it, and think how can I win when I’m up against THAT? But I also feel like: okay, and? There are two options. Quit. Or shut up And just keep fighting. So I’ll keep on fighting!”

Take it from someone who constantly wants more traffic and hits… it’s a never-ending cycle of dissatisfaction! Do what you love and if the No. 1s and awards come great, and if not… you’re living the life you wanted to anyways.
