Iggy Azalea to Release Sophomore Album 'Digital Distortion' June 30
Despite several setbacks, Iggy Azalea has landed a release date for her sophomore album Digital Distortion. In an interview with the Zach Sang Show, the Aussie MC revealed that she will unleash her newest offering this June.
“I think it’s supposed to be June 30th or 31st,” Iggy told Sang regarding the possible date. Later, she clarified that the project 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.
Azalea is currently pushing her booty-laden singles "Mo Bounce" and "Switch." Both twerk-friendly videos showcase the Def Jam star flaunting her assets. During her interview with Sang, she spoke on the origin of her new single "Switch."
"'Switch' is a song that I recorded back in early August and I loved it," began Azalea. "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."
Then, Azalea explained how she came across Brazilian pop star Anitta, who she later nabbed for the song.
"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."
