“[L]et this serve as proof anything is possible,” Iggy Azalea said, regarding how she became the first female rapper to top the Billboard Hot 100 in a decade. And, based on the rate she’s working, Azalea hopes to churn out more hits soon. In an interview with Miss Info for Hot 97, she confirmed that she has already started working on a follow-up to her Def Jam debut The New Classic.

Azalea plans to start recording new songs in August, after she wraps a few festival dates. She didn’t reveal who will appear on the new album, though she did reveal that she wants Missy Elliott to appear.

Meanwhile, Azalea plans to release “Black Widow,” featuring Rita Ora and co-written by Katy Perry, as her next single. It would be interesting to see how that song adds to her current success; recently, thanks to “Fancy” and her guest verse in Ariana Grande‘s “Problem,” she became the first act since the Beatles to have her first two chart entries rank first and second on the Hot 100.

Should Missy Elliott collaborate with Iggy Azalea? Sound off in the comments below.
