Iggy Azalea is a four time Grammy nominated and multi-platinum Australian rapper who has had cosigns not only from King of the South T.I. but also rap royalty from Dr. Dre to Snoop Dogg; in 2012, she became the first ever woman to be named to XXL’s Freshman list. Since then, collaborations with everyone from Southern rappers to EDM artists have followed.
In 2014, she made her US chart topping debut hitting a trifecta of worldwide #1 multi-platinum smash hits: ”Fancy” (featuring Charli XCX, 5x-platinum); “Black Widow” (featuring Rita Ora, 4x platinum); “Problem” (collaboration with Ariana Grande, 6x-platinum). “Fancy” was the longest leading Hot 100 #1 hit by a female rapper, a new chart record. It was named Billboard’s 2014 Song of the Summer, iTunes Best Song of 2014, the year’s most-streamed song on Spotify, and the most-watched music video on Vevo. While “Fancy” was still residing at #1 on the Hot 100, “Problem” – Iggy’s collab with Ariana Grande – peaked at #2. Iggy had made chart history again, this time as the first artist since the Beatles to rank at #1 and #2 simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 hits. Iggy’s winning streak continued with “Black Widow” (featuring Rita Ora) which rose to #1 on the Dance, Rhythmic, R&B/Hip-Hop, Rap, and Mainstream Top 40 charts, and #3 on the Hot 100. Propelled by the back-to-back success of “Problem,” “Fancy” and “Black Widow,” The New Classic peaked at #1 on the Billboard Rap Album charts, the first for an international female artist. Iggy Azalea’s videos have amassed over 2 billion combined views to date.
Most recently, Iggy released her first EP in four years, Survive the Summer, which features chart-topping recording artistWiz Khalifa and producer Smash David.The 6-track pack is a return to Iggy’s early mixtape sounds. The EP was released a few weeks after she dropped two songs in early July 2018, “Tokyo Snow Trip” and “Kream” feat. Tyga. “Kream,” the EP’s first single, debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100, opened with more than 8.1 million U.S. streams in its first week while the video reached more than 50 million views within the first two weeks of its release.
Prior, she released her single “Savior” (featuring Quavo). The single was featured in the Monster Super Bowl commercial which also stars Azalea and was the most Shazamed song during the broadcast.
