Reports that Azalea would release an expanded version of The New Classic surfaced in June. The album originally came out in April and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200. On top of the new songs, the re-released version will also feature different cover art.
Billboard recently announced that Azalea's "Fancy" is the Official Song of the Summer. The rapper has a successful history with collaborations, which bodes well for her work with Goulding. In addition to "Fancy," her song "Black Widow" with Rita Ora is currently at No. 6 on the Hot 100. She also raps on the Ariana Grande's "Problem," which is at No. 12, and T.I.'s "No Mediocre," at No. 40. Goulding's last album, Halcyon, came out in 2012.
