Iggy Azalea’s Next Album Will Showcase Her Versatility
Iggy Azalea’s follow up to The New Classic, which was recently certified Gold by RIAA, will include uptempo bops like breakthrough hit “Fancy,” but also slower anthems that showcase her versatility. Billboard spoke with songwriters/producers Kurtis McKenzie and Jon Mills (otherwise known as The Arcade) about working on the rapper’s sophomore set at the ASCAP Pop Awards on wednesday night (April 29), and they shared a couple of tidbits.
The duo revealed that they are focussing on writing upbeat anthems for Iggy, but said that other writers are working on slower songs to display the Australian’s full range. She has recorded quieter, more contemplative songs in the past (The New Classic bonus track “Rolex” and Jennifer Lopez collaboration “Actin’ Like That,” for starters), but they weren’t released as singles. It will be interesting to see how casual fans and radio respond to the femcee getting a little more personal.
