‘My Main’: Mila J Taps Iggy Azalea For New Single

After bidding farewell to ‘Interscope’ and heading over to ‘Def Jam’, it’s safe to say that Iggy Azalea‘s career has gone from strength to strength, now handled by a team who’ve succeeded in taking her from the bottom of the Pop pile to the height of the ‘Hot 100.’

Now, as they figure out a way to turn her ‘Fancy’ buzz into commendable sales, the label have placed her on ‘My Main’, the forthcoming single from Motown‘s Mila J.

Though yet to announce its official release date, ‘Main’ will drop in support of Mila‘s forthcoming ‘M.I.LA’ EP, set for release in September. Interesting, as September will also mark the release of Azalea‘s ‘The New Classic‘ re-release, both projects being launched by the ‘Universal Music Group.’

With two months until the ‘Classic’s relaunch, we really hope Iggy is spending this time penning smash hits that don’t feel so…manufactured.

For, whichever way one looks at it, ‘Classic’ was filled to the brim with cuts that led by its hooks and production alone. Problematic, when one realises that the rapper’s verse stand as the least interesting part of her own music.

With this mind, here’s hoping Camp Iggy encourage the MC to pen her own cuts from scratch as opposed to collecting numbers from different publishing houses and having her pen verses based on concepts handed to other by other writers.

After all, how likely is it that Charli XCX wrote ‘Fancy’ with Iggy in mind, when…

    Flop..more flop

    All male rappers do not write their own songs and female rappers should not be intimidated to write. If a rapper wants to translate a poet’s words, then so be it just like RnB or any other genre. Don’t you know that Dr. Dre, Snoop, JayZ, Kanye did not write every lyric they recorded? The male rappers can rap about anything, stupid stuff like SouljaBoy and yet are you saying that a female rapper can’t have fun? In the 90s there were many female rappers, each in their own lane. There were lyrical rappers, fun rappers, conscious rappers, etc. Every female rapper does not have to be laced with heavy metaphors. Iggy is doing just fine. We will just have to wait for another lyrical female rapper, if that’s the type of rapper one likes. Personally, I like all types of rapping styles. I am just happy that Iggy proved that a female rapper, with a label backed budget, can succeed. Now, the industry needs to sign some more unsigned female rappers and watch how it could take off.

      Nicki dont either

    • nicko July 15, 2014

      Boo.. iggy isnt an exemple. She isnt succeeding caude her album cant even sell 500k WW. N ANYBODY can chart with hot beats and chatchy hooks, but it takes TALENT to sell an album n have longevity n flopggy proves that.

      • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 15, 2014

        Icki proves ur point. *files nails

  5. JJFan1814 July 15, 2014

    Well Sam, do you think Ester Dean had Nicki in mind when she penned Superbass & Starships hooks? Oh

    • HeadBarbInCharge July 15, 2014

      Hooks? Babe who cares about who writes the hook? Nicki writes her verses d*** and that’s all that matters.

      • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 15, 2014

        I smell fish and detect lies from u. Ho

      • Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) July 15, 2014

        Hooks are what determine if a song smashes or not dumbasss! Lmao! That’s why Nicki’s only two hits had multiple people writing the chorus. You sound stupid. I don’t hear anyone singing the verses to Super Bass or Starships. But I hear the hook. At least I used to. The general public pays her dust now.

    • BeySting July 15, 2014

      Did you not read the article sis? Their point was that Iggy’s hooks are what are helping not her verses. Everyone agrees that Nicki’s verses slay which is why she can sell albums and Iggy can’t. People can tell that Iggy’s songs aren’t personal to her even if they like them.

  6. Lisa July 15, 2014

    The writers here get more dumb by the minute. Most of your fav songs were crafted without the artist in mind. Thats the f****** music business MORON. Another lame attempt to discredit her.

    • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 15, 2014

      Tell that sissy sam off gowrl!!!

    • VisionofMimi July 15, 2014

      What does it say about Iggy’s credibility when you just admitted that her biggest song to date wasn’t written for OR by her.

  7. truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 15, 2014

    When will icki!!!! She caint get a hit ft to save her wigs!!! Kii!!!

    • nicko July 15, 2014

      Pills N Potions tho, Bang Bang is coming to slay at the end of thz month ;).

      • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 15, 2014

        Y tho??? It’ll flop just like my name says

  8. Lisa July 15, 2014

    Exactly. He’s such a biased peice of s***. Nicki’s biggest hits contain Esther’s voice and lyrics.

    • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 15, 2014

      PREACH BISH PREEEEEAACH!!!!!

  9. JFB July 15, 2014

    The writers here a bunch of f*** who rather STAN for certain artist instead of giving us a decent article. Its obvious their #TeamMinaj and thats fine. But theres no need to shade Iggy every post.

    • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 15, 2014

      Biitch i agree…sam IZZ a qween. #QueenIggy

  10. truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 15, 2014

    Chiiiile Sam peaed of cus icki caint get no traction so he shades Queen Iggy

    • nicko July 15, 2014

      Flopggy is flopping. Her ALBUM is flopping n ppl dont care about her as an artist. TGJ soke pure facts. Nicki gets more attention thzn iggy n can actually SELL on her own 😉

      • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 15, 2014

        Chiiiiile….

  11. Lana Tropicana July 15, 2014

    The funny thing is that TGJ aren’t even lying. Go on Fancy’s wikipedia page and read what it says in the composition part. It doesn’t even name Iggy as one of the writers, it says TI wrote it.
    Iggy is a RAPPER and rappers are SUPPOSED to write their own lyrics so it IS funny that people bought Fancy because of the chorus and not the verses which Iggy wants people to believe she wrote herself.

    • truth (icki is FLOPN every got damn ft she on chile..she FLOPN careers.. Kc, FM and CICI is proof) July 15, 2014

      Where that DRUNK BIITCH u rep for on the charts? She somewhere in a back alleycorner with a bottle.

  12. NadiaMaraj July 15, 2014

    I’m crying at the struggle in this thread right now. Like what’s the problem? Nicki is KNOWN for her verses and the fact that she can slay an entire song in thirty seconds. Don’t forget that Future tried the same strategy as she did but failed because nobody cared about his lyrics in the way they did for Nicki.
    I like Iggy but don’t you think it’s tragic that even her own fans admit that the only song people know her for wasn’t even written for her and could have gone to ANY other artist who got to it first? Where would her career be if Rita or Marina had heard the hook first and taken it. Exactly.

  13. Rosie July 15, 2014

    The bias. Is Charli XCX the reason Work hasn’t left the iTunes top 100 in at least two months? Is se the reason Iggy has FIVE songs charting right now? And don’t even get started on her sales when it’s still the #3 rap album of the year so far. None of them even went gold and the #1 (Rick Ross) is barely at 300K.

    • CommanderKaty July 15, 2014

      Don’t act as if Fancy isn’t the only reason Work is charting now. Work was out before and nobody cared so what’s changed now?

  14. Brian310 July 15, 2014

    This is only the beginning for Iggy…I don’t know how much this collab is gonna help her but good luck.
