Iggy Azelea “The New Classic” Review

The album contains the runaway hit single “Fancy” produced by The Invisible Men & The Arcade and features Charli XCX, which hit #1 on iTunes Hip-Hop Songs chart and has cracked Top 40 Pop, Top 15 Rhythm, and Top 10 on the national (U.S.) Shazaam charts. She recently made an appearance ABC’s Good Morning America the day before “The Hip Hop Outbreak 2014 Tour” which is a 15 City Tour that will wrap up in Seattle on May 22nd. Iggy will then join the roster for Lollapalooza in Chicago, August 1-3. Last month, Iggy performed in Austin, Texas for the 10th annual MTVU Woodie Awards where her song “Bounce” was nominated for Best Video. Nominated as an “Artist to Watch” at the MTV VMAs, the 23yr old Iggy Azalea was also named a “FUSE Favorite” Artist, and was selected as a VEVO “Lift Artist.” She pulls no punches, citing broken dreams and bad deals, until she finally got aboard her spaceship into the music industry that now embraces her. With the arrival of “The New Classic”, Iggy declares “This dream is all that I need/ cause it’s all that I ever had.”
