After being spotted courtside recently with Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine, the rumor mill was buzzing about the future home for Iggy Azalea. You should not be surprised that there has been a major bidding war for the Australian songwriter/rapper in recent weeks, nor should you be shocked by her final decision. After reports of her being headed to Def Jam after dining with label heads and Rihanna, the Aussie Blonde Bombshell took to twitter to annouce: “Interscope, if you were wondering, Get used to me + jimmy [iovine] smashing shit, cause thats the plan.” CONFIRMED.
The Ignorant Art mixtape, which she dropped in 2011 has helped drive her popularity through the roof, along with her latest tracks, “My World”, “P***y”, and her latest, “The Last Song”. No stranger to good marketing and controversy, Izzy has often been quoted as saying that she creates music that makes people question and redefine old ideals. Interestingly enough, it has worked.
We all know how far the most outlandish and free artistic acts can go, and she does not disappoint. Azalea’s highly anticipated debut album The New Classic is due out Summer 2012. Classic material is definitely the expectation joining a label whose roster already speaks to legendary acts such as Eminem, U2, Lady Gaga and the Queen herself Mary J Blige.
