About Iggy Azalea

Amethyst Amelia Kelly, better known by her stage name Iggy Azalea, is an Australian hip hop recording artist signed to Island Def Jam and model represented by Wilhelmina Models. She first gained recognition after the respective music videos for her songs “Pu$$y” and “My World,” went viral on YouTube.

Azalea’s first project was Ignorant Art, released on September 27 2011. Iggy commented that she made it “with intent to make people question and redefine old ideals”. In 2012, Azalea became the first female and first non-American rapper to be featured on XXL’s annual “Top 10 Freshman” cover issue.

On July 30 2012, she released a free EP Glory, which was executive produced by Grand Hustle label-boss and American rapper T.I.. Later in October 2012, Azalea appeared alongside T.I., B.o.B and other Grand Hustle artists in a rap cypher, at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards. On October 11 2012, she released TrapGold, her second mixtape, this one being produced entirely by 1st Down of production team FKi and high-profile producer Diplo.

Azalea’s debut studio album The New Classic, is set to be released in April 2014 and has been promoted by a number of single releases and music videos, including Work, Bounce and Change Your Life in 2013 and Fancy in 2014.

The album was due to be released near the end of 2013, however Iggy Azalea supported Beyoncé during the Australian leg of her tour and this forced the album’s delay.
