Iggy Azalea is the hottest femcee in the game right now with two singles in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 (her own Charli XCX-assisted banger “Fancy” and Ariana Grande collaboration “Problem”). The buzz surrounding the Australian star is so strong that 2013 single “Work” even made a belated chart debut this week.
But there’s more. The unstoppable rap diva will appear on Jennifer Lopez‘s new LP A.K.A. and she’s positively fangirling at the prospect. “She actually only asked me about two weeks ago, so I didn’t have to keep the secret for too long,” Iggy told Ryan Seacrest in a radio interview. “When I opened on tour for Beyonce I had to keep that under wraps for months, which really killed me. So this is a breeze.”
The go-to feature girl gushed about her latest collaborator. “I love her,” she said. “I definitely used to sit in my bedroom as a young girl and lip-sync Jennifer Lopez songs, so it’s very cool to have a song with her on her album.” The song really needs to be released as a single. Imagine how epic the video would be with these two bombshells!
