Following the same suit as her promotional single “Azillion” released earlier in the year, Iggy Azalea comes through with another brash banger titled ‘Team’ serving as the official lead single from her sophomore album. “Baby I got me / Only friend I see / Playing on my team / Is someone like me!” Azalea asserts over a massive electro-hop beat, helmed by Chordz, Nezzo, and Omega of the production team D.R.U.G.S., built on a foundation of heavy laser-synths and a clapping-trap percussion living up to the album’s title. Team is not for the faint hearted! Watch the accompanying dance music video below with some of the fiercest choreography going:
Iggy Azalea recently spoke with 97.1 AMP Radio‘s Carson Daly about how her life experiences influenced the lead single ‘Team’, “Well, if I’m gonna have everyone try to come at me, then I have to support my own self and I have to be strong on my own and I don’t need all of that extra stuff. I’m just gonna rock it myself.” Azalea is set to perform the song for the first time on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon next week on March 21 and has confirmed the music video is under production.
Iggy’s forthcoming second studio album titled ‘Digital Distortion’ will be released in stores later this year via Def Jam/Virgin EMI. In an interview for the April 2016 cover story of Elle Canada, Azalea talked about the album’s production, “I wouldn’t say it’s an angry album. It’s still uptempo and fun, but it’s a little more grown-up and moody. I didn’t want people’s commentary to take me away from the style of music that I make…” She referred to its sound being related with the title claiming that the album “has a bit of an electronic, digital influence, so the name fits sonically. But then, of course, topically, we all know the different things that were said about me in 2015,” continuing, “it’s interesting that we live in this age of digital distortion where we’re all distorting each other and distorting ourselves and our perception of who we all are, and none of it is really accurate anymore.”
