5 years have separated fans of Iggy Azalea from the rapper’s debut LP, ‘The New Classic.’

Originally scheduled for a 2016 launch, the Grammy nominee’s sophomore effort – then-christened ‘Digital Distortion’ – was serially delayed after public response to the title’s first couple of singles paled in comparison to those from its 2014 predecessor’s.  Once label drama entered into play, Azalea parted ways with Def Jam and offered fans 2018’s ‘Survive the Summer’ EP as a means to tide them over until her official sophomore album was done baking.

Enter 2019, the saucy Aussie hopped back on the scene with the ferocious bangers ‘Sally Walker,’ ‘Started,’ ‘I Just Wanna,’ and more fresh out the oven – all found on her newly christened second opus, ‘In My Defense.’  With critical acclaim aplenty surrounding all of the singles from the set today, will the album – now available in full – prove itself worth the wait?
