Iggy Azalea Slams Spotify As Producer Defends ‘Sally Walker’ From Cardi B Comparisons

Published: Monday 18th Mar 2019 by Rashad

After several swings at the bat it appears Iggy Azalea‘s finally hit a home run with her latest single, ‘Sally Walker.’ 

Released just Friday (March 15), the tune walked to the top of real-time iTunes Rap charts, amassed a whopping 17 million views on Youtube (as of time reported), and even scored over a million spins on Spotify (as we reported here).  And, while most would call it a comeback considering how many times the saucy Aussie’s been counted out in the past, Azalea’s joined her fans (affectionately called #Azaleans) in calling out the streaming giant out for discrimination.

Alleging the absence of “payola” being the reason Spotify hasn’t given the J. White-produced cut it’s due shine on the platform, look inside for the 28-year-old’s rant against the leader in streaming:

Once Azalea’s followers noticed how well ‘Walker’ was performing on other major platforms, some were curious to know why that success wasn’t being mirrored on Spotify.  Once officials replied, Iggy weighed in:


As if the controversy above wasn’t enough, ‘Walker’s been inundated with criticism for its likeness to Cardi B hit, ‘Money.’  Both crafted by Grammy-winning hitmaker J. White, the producer apparently got fed up with the comparisons as he went into defense mode on behalf of ‘Walker.’
