Stream Iggy Azalea ‘The New Classic’
But finally the day is here, and despite some last-second pushbacks (again) that meant the album dropped a week after its final release date, The New Classic is on shelves today. Featuring the likes of Tip, Charli XCX, Mavado, Rita Ora and Watch The Duck, Azalea is expanding her reach as she sticks to her hip-hop roots, mixing pop and rap into her own blend of hip-hop. She's also begun exploring some new interests through the series of movie-inspired music videos she's dropped in the run up, from the Clueless-inspired "Fancy" to the Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert-themed "Work," as she delves into writing songs for movie soundtracks like The Other Woman, the new movie starring Nicki Minaj, and Million Dollar Arm, out in May.
Azalea kicks off her New Classic Tour tomorrow night in Boston, and in the buildup to the album's release, the 2012 XXL Freshman People's Champ spoke to XXL about the long wait for the album, her love of movies, and her relationship with Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young, among other topics. The wait is over. —Dan Rys
