Iggy Azalea Joins Maroon 5 on Career Artist Management Roster
Iggy Azalea, the multi-platinum Def Jam Recording artist who announced Monday in revealing fashion that her new single “Mo Bounce” will drop on Friday, has signed a management deal with Jordan Feldstein's Career Artist Management, Billboard has learned.
“Mo Bounce” will arrive just three weeks after Azalea's single “Can't Lose,” featuring Lil Uzi Vert, dropped and will be included on her long-awaited upcoming album Digital Distortion. For the announcement, Azalea created a game where she posted images that, when assembled correctly, showed posterior-revealing cover art (below). She also posted a "twerk-out clip."
Azalea (née Amethyst Amelia Kelly) seemed to own 2014, as her album The New Classic exploded and the rapper landed three top 10s hits on the Billboard Hot 100: “Fancy," which lived at No. 1 for seven weeks; “Problem” (Ariana Grande featuring Azalea) peaking at No. 2; and “Black Widow” featuring Rita Ora at No. 3.
She also had six top 10 hits on Hot Rap Songs, including “Fancy,” which tied with Missy Elliott and Drake for the longest run at No. 1 on the chart at 18 weeks. Azalea is also the only solo artist to have both a No. 1 and No. 2 in the same week on the Hot 100 with her first two chart hits (“Fancy” and “Problem," which went No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, on the June 7, 2014, chart), a feat only The Beatles have matched.
According to Nielsen Music, she’s sold 595,000 albums, had 10.1 million digital downloads in the U.S. to date and earned 1.2 billion on-demand streams.
