Iggy Azalea Sets 2017 Release For “Sexier” ‘Digital Distortion’ Album

Published: Friday 30th Sep 2016 by Sam

The campaign for Iggy Azalea‘s ‘Digital Distortion’ album was seemingly derailed when lead single ‘Team’ tanked on the charts.

Though received favourably by critics, the cut didn’t fare well commercially; it only managed a #42 and #62 peak in the US and UK respectively.

Now, after a brief  break (during which she served as a judge on ‘The X Factor Australia’), the femcee is gearing up to re-start the push for the LP.

Details below…

Speaking with PEOPLE magazine, she asserted that her break-up with Nick Young caused the delay. She added that her new single status is driving the revised version of the album in a “sexier” direction:

“I just kind of felt like, on top of me needing the personal time, then feeling, ‘Okay, I’m single now. I want to have sexy songs. I want to say stuff about being single.’

I obviously didn’t write that on my [original] album because when I wrote it I was about to get married … I don’t want to go and promote my album and get asked about my relationship that has just crumbled.” [Source]

The feature touts a January 2017 arrival for ‘Distortion,’ which suggests a new single may be nigh.

Given the many dramas Iggy found herself in, it’ll be interesting to see whether she’ll be able to shake of the backlash.

  6. Lake Erie September 30, 2016

    Smh.. … i really don’t care that much but I liked her “team” single but I just think her hype is over.. But on the other side, her debut album sales weren’t great at all so she could possibly out beat those sales.

    • Chris October 1, 2016

      She did decent. Her album sold Gold and the steaming thing made it platinum

  7. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? September 30, 2016

    She’s still a thing?

    • Danzou September 30, 2016


  8. Suxmycockiness =0 September 30, 2016

    Oh I remember her, She’s sings that Fancy song right?

    • kwinzy September 30, 2016

      Yes, it went #1 on Hot 100 as well. Which is hard to get, not everyone has those 😉

      • Fancy BISH September 30, 2016

        CLOCK ha, kwinzy lol

      • Danzou September 30, 2016

        Kwinzy yeah lil kim don’t got one either.

      • kwinzy September 30, 2016

        *blank stare*

        Sitting here wondering why this Danzou peasant decided to remove his index finger outta his bootyhole to come for me on here. Who sent for him? Nicki’s fraudulent millions ain’t taking you out Section 8 enough for you to be all in your feelings, ma’am. Stop stirring the pot of ramen noodles and pay last month’s rent.

      • Danzou September 30, 2016

        Yawn. Get ya clap back game up h**.

      • kwinzy September 30, 2016

        Clap back? Can’t nobody clap back louder than that ashy lard trollop b*** you got. Get your priorities straight and fix your stretch marks. I wonder if you’ll still be as obsessed with me when they turn ya lights off. Ha! And yes Kim has a #1 Hot 100 record. 20 years in the game and still relevant AF.

      • Danzou October 1, 2016

        Kim has a number one? Or did she piggy back other women for a number one? Stop projecting your financial stability on everyone else. If kim was still relevant ha album wouldn’t have flopped on pay pal. Three world tours over here. Three multi-million selling albums over here. 60 plus entries on the hot 100 over here. My lights are just fine. You need to worry about faking pictures on ya avi cuz u ugly in real life.

      • kwinzy October 1, 2016

        Yet Nicki has 92743823 collaborations and the bish STILL can’t hit #1. It’s like she been trodding the Sahara desert for 70 miles and can’t get to the oasis. Buhahaha! Let that thirsty heaux die of dehydration.

        It’s funny how you’re quick to deny Kim’s accomplishments yet are quick to big up Nicki for doing the same sh!t. 3rd highest female artist with the most billboard hits… due to COLLABORATIONS. “Yeah Nicki, keep going!” Hypocritical much?

        Faking pictures, bish where? UGLY…where?? Please oh please, post a pic up. I’d love to roast the ashy-ness outta you.

      • Danzou October 1, 2016

        Who said kim had no accomplishments? What I said is that her and ha fans are tired. Her album flopped on PAYPAL. Nicki is the highest female rapper ever. Kim had no world tours and she can’t get an entry in billboard to save ha life and you know it kwinzy I know you’re smarter than this. Please cut it. Please. You’re mad and u can stay that way. Nick is the reigning queen. Accept it and be happy. I have receipts to prove it.

      • Danzou October 1, 2016

        That many entries on billboard due to collaborations that no one is giving to kim because she’s washed like laundry. You can diminish her collaborations all u want but she’s in demand hence the many collaborations. If kim is the queen then why don’t nobody wanna collaborate? She has no brand and there’s no money in kim cuz SHE WACK KWINZY. LET IT GO PUNK.

      • kwinzy October 1, 2016

        You’re a barb brained c00n… I have never hated an artist as I do Nicki Minaj and that ain’t gonna let up. Your blood pressure is skyrocketing over us Kimmy fans keeping it real. You want us to replace her. You want us to forget. You want us to make hip-hop petty. You want us to rate looks, fake asses and business ventures over raw talent, legacy. You want us to rate sugary pop music over real rap. Well that ain’t happening, bish. All she had to do was stay in her own lane, that’s it. But no, she wanted to clone a bish and thought she’d get away with it. Onika deserves to be dragged to hell & back for her evil. Karma has no time limit! Know that.

      • kwinzy October 1, 2016

        Nicki is high in demand because the Illuminati has her under their wing, you fool. She’s a f***!ng plant! Authentic female rappers keep it real and don’t get chances to earn accolades by making pop music. A sell-out is what Nicki has been from the jump, middle & the soon to be end. Stop bringing her up, she finna be 34 and replaced with someone more youthful, classy and respectful to other female rapper’s legacies.

      • Danzou October 1, 2016

        i have lost all respect for your lil stupid pink lipped ass. illuminati? as if. kim was said to be part of that crap too. you keep replying and replying but KIM HAS NO RECEIPTS. SHE FLOPPED ON PAYPAL. GET THAT THROUGH YOUR THICK HEAD. Im not no damn barb. i dont stan anyone and if i do its probably one of the legends. i love kim just as much as the next person but her fatass is stuck doing reunion performances on someone else’s tour so hush. Kim has three plat albums and one gold certification with nothing to show for it but plastic surgery and a baby by some illegitimate thug. nicki is worth 77 million dollars. kim is worth 18 million and the only reason she’s worth that much is because biggie left it to ha. so you can stay as cognitively dissonant as you want but the information is there for you to do with it as you please but it seems like you choose to ignore cold hard facts. Did nicki have ha body done? yeh. i can admit it. Is kim a washed up fatass side chick to a pioneer or rap who wrote ha entire first album? yeh. but you cant admit it. the same way you cant admit that youre a pathetic loser who is bent on competing with someone that has no pic on a random ass tired blog like this. You literally have a pic up. For what? lol get a life you p****. Youre mad at nicki because people are buying into ha brand? and not kims? do you see the fault in your hatefull ass argument? your emotions are clouding your gay vision. I dont hate kim not the least bit. i love hardcore because one of my favorite artists wrote it for her. i like some of ha other albums too. but shes done. one day nicki will give ha spot up but that aint until ha contract is up with young money and even then SHE’LL STILL HOLD THE RECORD AS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL FEMALE RAPPER TO DATE. F*** outta here ya dumb b****.

      • kwinzy October 1, 2016

        Lol! Is your keyboard okay? I’m gonna change my avi just to p*** you off. You’re sooo obsessed with me and it shows. This nicca really thinks I put a pic up to compete with other niccas on TGJ. Who says that? Hilarious. Please go see a shrink, it’s too many black brothas out here with mental demons.

        Why receipts do you have Biggie wrote Kim’s stuff? Please understand I flushed Nicki the pop tart down the toilet a looooooong time ago (2012 to be exact) so I don’t know why your pressed ass keeps bringing sh!t up. She’ll never get my respect, overstand? But since you already did, seeth at these hashtags… #TeamEveryRapBitchButNicki #7YearsofFraud #CancerAwareness #QueenofPetty #SBWroteIt #HerBrotherARapist #KarmasComing #TeamKim #TeamRealRap #TeamFemaleRapUnity

      • Danzou October 1, 2016

        Lol what receipts do I have? You can literally go YouTube and listen to biggie rapping the demo for queen b’itch. Look at ha writing credits on hardcore. It’s all credited to biggie. So shut up. You can duck and Dodge the facts all you want. no one is convincing you to like nicki so post all the hashtags you want. I’m simply giving you information that you refuse to accept because you’re cognitively dissonant. You can change ya avi all you want this is TGJ A F****** BLOG IN THE CORNER OF THE INTERNET IT’S NOT THAT SERIOUS LOL. No one is obsessed with you. I ended rih navy, I ended LB, I ended mark, I ended selena Stan and I’ll end you next. Keep it up h**. All the hash tags in the world can’t bring kim back hahaha hahaha hahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa hahahahah hahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa hahahahah haha YOUR FAVE IS WASHED and you outed yourself as that other kim Stan account that I ended hahahahah

  9. B_Roni September 30, 2016

    I like her and will support her. She just has bad single choices. Her team is crazy. Immediately after black widow new b*tch should have followed. That would have been another hit

  10. Knowledge September 30, 2016

    It’s crazy how she’s a judge on xfactor when her career is in the garbage.can u imagine her telling you how to be successful

  11. GEEZUS September 30, 2016

    Keep it.

  12. Danzou September 30, 2016

    Keep it.

  13. J. Parker September 30, 2016

    I’m just curious as to why “they” are content on trying to making her a star. I mean at this point, aren’t they just beating a dead horse ?!? Just let that ish go. She has had a few good hits on her hand and made her mark, I guess. Idk. But on a side note, all this gives me is that she realized she can’t sell ” rap” any more so she gonna try to s*** it up a bit and sell s** and hope that works for her.

    I like Team and Azillion so I’m not ready to give up on her. let’s hope she’s ready to stop making a full of herself and actually put in work. I get it she wanted time off but I think that locking herself up in Australia for a full season of X Factor is not a smart move for someone who’s aiming at an international career.

  20. d October 1, 2016

    You know there are very few artists that have been ripped apart like she has. For that I will support her and do want her to succeed because she seems to really have a passion for music and i can’t knock that. But she really is going to have to open herself up more as an artist and entertainer and then we can finally get an idea of who she really is.

  21. tGj = Glory’s Hole October 1, 2016
