Can Iggy Azalea Make A Comeback?

iggy-azalea-2016-thatgrapejuice
Flashback to the summer of 2014, one could not flip a channel without seeing the Australian bombshell that is Iggy Azalea. Now merely a year later, we see the ‘Fancy’ chart topper’s career in limbo. With a controversial start, Iggy Iggz has had a tough road despite all her success.

Is it too late for the Aussie Rapper?

At That Grape Juice, we feel there are some steps Ms. Azalea could take in order to revive her career.

Check them out below…

Studio. Studio. Studio

Iggy has been scrutinized for her lack of lyrical content and similar type music. If concerned with critical acclaim, it would benefit the rapper to create more songs like “Work” & “Walk the Line” opposed to songs like “Beg for It” & “Iggy Szn” which predominately make up her catalogue.

Work on stage Presence / Performance

Iggy’s performances have improved since her utter fail As seen below. (http://bit.ly/1I8wIEU). Moving in the direction of her SNL performance (http://bit.ly/1F9590J) will help to solidify her as an artist.

Lay Off The Surgery

We do not need another Lil Kim. Now, before the shade police set the sirens off, let us elaborate. The sad reality of the entertainment business is that women’s appearance is often dwelled on more than their talent or career output. A fact Lil Kim fans are all-too familiar with.

In recent months, Iggy’s “keep it real” agenda has seen her “open up” about her various new plastic surgery procedures. For her own sake, she’s better off keeping the focus away from anything that could take a turn down salacious street.

Re-launch Her Social Media Presence

Despite all her success, Iggy is a new artist whom listeners are still getting to know. While adjusting to constant criticism can be difficult, it is essential to stay connected with your supporters especially when you are fresh meat.

Scale Down The Tour

As many speculations have arisen as to the reasoning behind cancelling ‘The Great Escape Tour,’ we’re inclined to believe it is due to poor sales. Selling out smaller venues is more beneficial than having half an arena of empty seats. Right?!

*****************

Though her stock may have fallen, there is no denying that Iggy has been female’s rap most prominent star since Ms. Minaj. Boasting feats that many female rappers have yet to achieve (i.e. #1 singles, Grammy nominations, ect), there is still room for Iggy to regain her previous status. With rap contemporaries such as Tink, Dej Loaf, and Angel Haze at her coat tails, team Azalea needs to get with times sooner rather than later.

    Of course, white people are always looking for the next great white artist to replace Nicki; They both are limited in appeal and starting to falter.

    they girls better cash in on tours now, and marketing now, because they will fade like all other female rappers

    • Memo September 21, 2015

      Replace Nicki? Excuse me?! Nicki Minaj is no icon to be replaced.

    • Girl hush September 21, 2015

      Nicki actually had a loyal Stan base all over the world that’s one thing I can’t lie about, her albums will probably never sell millions but they won’t flop either.

    • You tried September 21, 2015

      Hold up! Stage PRESENCE??? IGGY SLAYS THE STAGE! No need to shade the stage presence and then PLASTIC SURG?? Y’all are reaching. I’m not a Stan but this sounds like a HATE post! #Comeback ??? #SHENEVERLEFT lol she had a great year and unlike other #Thirsty artist that won’t go away to find #REALINSPIRATION she is living life and I’m sure will return like she should #ATTHETOPOFHERGAME … TGI we don’t want to start on the topic of #SecondComingsOfLILKIM. COUGHS let’s not

  2. Kitty Puurrzz September 21, 2015

    IGGY is far from over. Iggy can still give us those radio commercial hits & slay. Can Onika? That’s the question YALL need to ask .

    • Faf September 21, 2015

      Ananconda was solo and went straight top 5

      • Memo September 21, 2015

        Her album is a flop, man.

      • nicko September 21, 2015

        @Memo ure talking about iggy’s album right ? The Pinkprint outsold it.

      • Ace September 22, 2015

        It was a remake wuth dude vocals in it.iggy went number one with charlie for 7weeks and 5million copies sold.nicki been out since 06 still no number one hit on billboard.facts.she murdered nicki awards the whole yr she was out except b.e.t of course

  3. LilMo897 September 21, 2015

    Fancy was cute but all her duets were corny but she is looking pretty now

  4. 2bad2bme September 21, 2015

    A Comeback? She only had one album with a couple hit records what does she need to come back from? thatgrapejuice please get yall s*** together

    • Citi September 21, 2015

      Right. She was never really here. She had two bops because the Hooks were infectious, and an album that barely sold.

    • What now September 21, 2015

      Tru

  5. Sway September 21, 2015

    TI pimped this hoetype

    she is basic as best

    • Faf September 21, 2015

      And now he’s tryna drop her bc she made him lose street cred

  6. BeyOnic September 21, 2015

    Go back to Australia. You have no rap skill or presence on stage so it’s not as if anyone would be missing out. At the very least Nicki is a good rapper, at the very least Iggy is a pedestrian one.

  7. BeyOnic September 21, 2015

    Oh and stop thinking Ti ever liked you. He saw Wayne blow with Nicki and thought he could replicate. Too bad.

  8. lisa489 September 21, 2015

    as she laughs that everyone brought fancy and made her a millionare off 1 single.

    She’s gagging all the way to the back on you dummies

    Jlo – a dancer – not a singer – all smoke n mirrors
    Iggy – a model – not a rapper – all smoke n mirrors
    Ciara – a model and dancer – not a singer – all smoke n mirrors
    Justin Bieber – a model -not a singer/dancer – smoke n mirrors
    Beyonce – a Singer – not a dancer/actress – smoke n mirrors

    • King Mark111 /.\ September 21, 2015

      Beyonce can perform tho. But you have to take an artist for what they are. There’s very few double threats and even fewer triple threats. Onky artist I know are triple threats is Janet, Beyonce, J.Lo and Aaliyah.

      • Tyler Makivelli September 21, 2015

        How would Jlo and her paper thin voice be considered a triple threat? She’ll never be anything more than a back up dancer with a mic.

      • Lea September 22, 2015

        Where is beyonce a triple threat? She cant act or model.

    • Girl hush September 21, 2015

      Beyonce has been dancing since she was 3, in ballet school they’re pictures all over. So yea she is a “Dancer” if we’re being technical.

  9. Quinton251=Wayne Stan September 21, 2015

    Nope, b**** is done. She killed her own career by popping off on social media at every little thing.

  10. #TeamTinashe Stan September 21, 2015

    I remember when she, Azealia Banks and Angel Haze were cited by a lot of people as the next to blow up. And only 1 did but they hate on her why?

    My theory is that the Nicki stans already disliked her just like their fave because:
    1) She is a female rapper
    2) “Fancy” being #1 for 7 weeks consecutively. This alone made them UPSET!
    3) She had two songs at the top #1 and #2 spot at the same time for a long duration. That is IMPRESSIVE and they SEETHED!

    I’m not a fan of Iggy but I’m not gonna act like she is that cheesy on her records or “Fancy” wasn’t great stuff. Once all these things happened for her you had crazy ass Banks crying on radio about her past and white supremacy in music and Nicki followed (as she wasn’t brave before) and then the whole Hip Hop heads army came for her!
    SMH.

    • King Mark111 /.\ September 21, 2015

      I think people forget that Nicki went through the SAME ISH. With superbase, she wasn’t real hip hop, with Stupid H**, she can’t rap. From the beef with Kim, MC and so many others. Her 2nd album not doing as well as her first, her last album flopping, she’s a rap Gaga. Nicki just knows how to handle the hate better than Iggy. Both play the poor lil ol me card, but Iggy over played it and the gp got sick of it.

      • nicko September 21, 2015

        None of her albums flopped. TPP went gold in the US, silver in the Uk, gold in brazil n is close to 1M WW lesss than a year after it dropped(not bad for today’s standards) n Nicki scored several plat/multi-plat hits since the era started. Nicki is WAY more successful than iggy, she made more money off the european leg of her tour than iggy did with her white privilege, clear channel deal n pop hooks

  11. BeyRihLiyah September 21, 2015

    Lmaooo hell no shes a fad the general public especially the pop public are very fickle they move on fast she was never going to make it she is trash

  12. BrendaHo September 21, 2015

    I like a few of her songs honestly black widow and fancy are really cool

    i know the truffle butter fans hate on her but I like her.

  13. King Mark111 /.\ September 21, 2015

    Comeback? She was never here. ONE hit, she have to overcome a sophomore slump and hope to get another hit before she gets the the title “comeback”. People misuse that word, Janet is a comeback, comeback is when you were on top, took a huge break and then comeback. But people used that on her during the whole 2000s decade when tho she was dropping albums every 2 years. Anyway, she MAY become a PitBull at best. As in pop songs with a feat on the hook. That seem to be the trend with Her, Wackamore, Pit and FloRider.

    • Christian September 21, 2015

      She’s had multiple hits and her album is gold

      • nicko September 21, 2015

        it went gold A YEAR after it dropped (Nicki did it in 2 months, without Payola 😉 )

  14. Fancy BISH September 21, 2015

    Iggy has plenty of room to grow from a Gold album if she puts the work in…she should try working with Rick Rubin for a more rap/rock sound as well as make a couple LL Cool J type love songs about her boo lol…she should look at Pink for inspiration as how to approach her second album…she needs to make people say, ‘Whoa…I didn’t expect that’…think Beastie Boys, Blondie and Pink’s Missundaztood…and make something totally different and fresh with Charli XCX…something that’s rap/New Wave…and get that flow precise and clear…

  15. Jay September 21, 2015

    How about TGJ gives advice to Ciara whom I adore too. Lets just keep it real. Ciara is going around taking gigs that JHUD should be getting. What has she benefited from embarassing herself from these singing gigs? She is scrapping by. Ciara’s team is not honest and only cares about her fame. I am sick of Ciara talking about Russell. Can we get to the music? Jackie took 10 steps backwards. Nobody wants generic pop music from a 30 yr old. The Ciara album outsold Jackie and Basic Instinct. It was a step in the right direction, but she has this pop world dominance delusion. Ciara’s music is boring and does not stand out. Ciara is boring and her live performances have been off. The only Dance Like we’re making love tv promo was not good, she looked like Ashanti..people talked about her jump rope. The Janet tribute was speedy, and sloppy. You know what that shows? Ciara is lazy, and has not worked on her vocal skills, songwriting skills, or expanded her dancing. She has done so much twerking, that she cannot even do Janet’s intricate choreography from high skilled choreographers. Ciara’s team has exposed her weakeness and it is humiliating. Ciara is failing at music. She can barely stream Gold, she does not get booked for mainstream Awards anymore, and she does not get main stages at the big festivals. She nae naed at the Nick Sports Awards, did not go to her Times Square video premiere, and is not social media savy. She barely updates her websites with event dates, or tweet her music links. Her music is dated and I am tired. I have invested in Ciara’s career so much, and to me she does not have the same passion for music anymore. She could do features to stay afloat but yet everything is a mess. Do you know I stood waiting for hours in a bad part of the city in a pissy venue waiting for her to perform..and she comes out with a working mic, lights, and dj saying its a outage..glad I got my refund..and you know what? That moment looking at the size of that small stage…I said Ciara has fallen off big time..August Alsina had people wrapped around the block..Ciara did not sell out her tour in all dates..we blame her team..but its Ciara’s bad choices…she constantly burns bridges to the point she has a had the lowest selling album of her career! Sales DO matter in the business..wish her small fanbase would stop being in denial…Ciara has been on these B list tv shows that are pointless. Hollywood Game Night, Bravo, Streamy Awards, and walked the red carpet at the VMAs that all they asked her about was her boyfriend..I am tired…help Ciara yall smh…she has no clue of who she is..and best believe she has had a small nose job and boob job too..where is her real self esteem? I pray she is being real with Russell..Ciara likes to morph into whoever she is dating..I hope she stops cussing and doing those silly lap dances..she sounds and looks sad..folks aint buyin it..

    • Rihboy September 21, 2015

      Wow you are very passionate about manyara ????????

  16. Queen Molly September 21, 2015

    She could the white girls still love her.

  17. Diamond Princess September 21, 2015

    Ya’ll are so dramatic! Wasn’t fancy, black widow, & pretty girls just on the charts? And I am not a fan so thanks

    • King Mark111 /.\ September 21, 2015

      Questionable Girls was a flop. Black Roach road off the success of Fancy. All one hit wonders have a follow up single that rides along with the big hit. Sisqo had Incomplete, yet he is still a one hit wonder. So did Vanilla Ice, Sir Mix Alot, Chingy and so many more.
      .
      Because every song from that re up ep flopped.

  18. King Mark111 /.\ September 21, 2015

    I really don’t see the difference from Iggy and Kesha. Both were black talking white pop stars over a beat. One was edm and the other have more urban pop. Ooh I got it, Kesha actually WRITE her songs. Ok, bye.

    • ronnoc September 21, 2015

      I’ve never heard Kesha talk “black”. Sure, she talks/raps in her songs, but it’s still in her own valley girl accent.

  19. Check Your Lipstick Before You Come & Talk To Me September 21, 2015

    Very unlikely. She had such a high and now she is nowhere to be seen. She may have another cute radio hit but her career will result to being on Basketball Wives.

  20. YoursTruly September 21, 2015

    She won’t be going top 10 anytime soon. She just needs to become a housewife and maybe her own reality show or go on bbwla and call it a day. 🙂

  21. ????Indira???? September 21, 2015

    A comeback?? Do y’all know the definition of the word? When Rihanna releases R8 that will be a comeback. I don’tknow what yyou’d consider Iggy’s situation except a flop fad ass mess that the GP caught on to hence the reason she started flopping before she even started slaying! #MESS

    • RIHANNA>beyonce September 21, 2015

      But Rihanna has bbhmm that went platinum and ffs went multiplatinum so rih is good. Bbhmm is still selling p

  22. Rihboy September 21, 2015

    She will be the Rita Ora of “rappers”. Barely getting by. On the outskirts of a list island assail her c list raft. Her most monumental song fancy is the only think she can substantially brag about. Furthermore she will need something huge to make a comeback. Better writers, producers, stylist, gigs, everything. She seems to be very likeable; she just sucks. Also her team lacks promotional skills. They pushed her into these big events and gigs to early knowing she wasn’t equipped to wow the masses yet. Ultimately I feel like she should just drop the rap act and go mainstream pop. With the right team they can catapult her to a higher level in the industry.

  23. Tyler Makivelli September 21, 2015

    Who Dat!? Who Dat!? I-G-G-BYE

    • MsYonce September 21, 2015

      Lmaooooo stop

  24. Tyler Makivelli September 21, 2015

    Blondie might have actually stood a chance had she not been exposed as a closet twitter fingers having racist.

  25. Theman September 21, 2015

    Let her do her pop/rap music. She’s her own artist. There are different branches of rap music. She had about two or three hits from her last album & the album went gold. For a new female rapper, that is a success. Stop hating. Sam made a few good points. But her first era was a success. So in parts this story makes not the least bit of sense.

    • Greenlee September 21, 2015

      No.

  26. DTG September 21, 2015

    Unfortunately, yes. 20 years ago Iggy would have been toast. Her backlash would have prompted radio, retail and the industry overall to lock her out and that would have been it for her. In this day and age with the Internet, should-be one hit wonders and fad pop acts can divert a backlash and hang around longer than they were supposed to if they have enough silly fans who’ll continue to check their new stuff out online. Look at Bieber. That dork shouldn’t have made it past 2012, but thanks to streaming and iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, VEVO and blogs he’s still here. That’s why the industry needs to stop taking its cues from the Internet and go back to radio and retail mattering most, else we’ll get stuck with Bieber’s and Miley’s and Iggy’s for longer than need be.

    • Jay September 21, 2015

      I was just saying this! Truth

  27. MsYonce September 21, 2015

    I think she can tbh I mean all she needs is some good pop/rap songssongs and the people will eat it up

  28. Barb-wire September 21, 2015

    Bye TGJ, y’all know this chick won’t be resurrected.. Let her stay dead.

  29. Clipthesedudes September 21, 2015

    She’s done lol. She destroyed her own imagine from social media

  30. StrawberryMuffin24 September 21, 2015

    I love IGGY all she needs is a Hott ass Single and Album and she will be right back on top like she was she has the it factor!

  31. badnastydingaz September 21, 2015

    One gold certified album about 3 bb top 3 singles for a new artist is success ,most of these artist int seeing this kinda success , all Iggy needs is another hit song n she will be bk on top ,Iggy is farrrrr from over !! Nicki minaj is over everything she does now is boring asf int checking for dat h** anymore ,her best time is wen lil Kim was giving her ass the time n day wen lil Kim stop doing dat Nicki minaj appeal was declining faster than noami Campbell edges !

    • nicko September 21, 2015

      Woww the delusion I cant. Nobody is checking for Nicki yet shes on the charts unlike iggy AND kim ? Yet TPP was certfied BEFORE the new trash n came out MONTHS later. I knew u were a troll when u said that ppl were checking for Nicki because of Lil Flop. ???? Iggy is over, deal with it ????. Nicki is slaying the charts, selling out arenas, winning awards meanwhile none of the lame b****** ure dickriding are. ???????? If u think Nicki’s appeal is declining (with cerified albums + singles, sold out arenas n major awards) what would u say about kims “career”? ???????? b**** hasnt been on the charts for a DECADE.

      • hmm September 21, 2015

        But sis explain to me how nicki went from going platinum in one month to barely scanning gold. And you praise the fact that the pink shìt is almost at 1 million ww after almost a year she’s done that in less time before so what’s stopping her now? Kii there are even Indie artists selling more than her with a third of the exposure she has. Oh and please post your receipts of those sold out arenas or should I post my receipts?

      • nicko September 21, 2015

        Which indie artist sold 1M WW in less than a year ? Stop the lies :-/. N stop acting dumb. We all know STREAMING is taking over. Aq for The Pinkprint tour’s receipts u can find them on Billboard n on Forbes ????

  32. StrawberryMuffin24 September 21, 2015

    I think Iggy is a better performer then Nicki i would go see Iggy live before Nikki!

    I liked The New Classic can’t wait for her New Album!

  33. TerryB September 21, 2015

    They should write an article like this for Rita Ora and Ciara.

    • lolhart September 22, 2015

      David would never allow an article like this about Rita, because he’s still trying to convince everybody she’s about to blow up.

    • Jay September 23, 2015

      Told yall. Sam and David, where is Ciara’s post? Be honest
