Iggy Azalea has quite a set of obstacles ahead of her career-wise. Three years ago, the Australian rapper found herself in the midst of the growing racial tension in America, mainly thanks to a polarizing debate about whether or not she’s appropriating Hip-Hop culture (all the way down to her faux Southern-American accent) and her rather insensitive responses to the matter (which led to internet “beefs” with the likes of Azealia Banks, Q-Tip and — surprisingly — her own colleague T.I.). Since then, she’s been in the headlines for the usual Hollywood fare: her heavy use of plastic surgery and failed relationship with L.A. Lakers’ player Nick Young. While there was a growing buzz for the follow-up to debut album The New Classic (titled Digital Distortion, led by last year’s “Azillion” and “Team“) and a massive North American tour, all was suddenly put on hold, leaving Iggy’s fans wondering what her next move would be.
This week, it looks like Iggy’s ready to restart her momentum, as she’s liberated a brand new single titled “Mo Bounce”, which premiered on Apple Music’s Beats 1. The track — produced by The Stereotypes and Far East Movement‘s Kev Nish — is a futuristic, bouncy cut (hence the name) that sees Azalea rapping like she’s at a South Central cookout:
Bounce like a motherf***in’ ’64, sick flow
Slick talk, spittin’ that Crisco
Drop that s***, like a cholo at the dub show
Can you hit the switch and pick it up and let the world know?
Check out “Mo Bounce” below (UPDATE: Official video added). Presumably, Iggy will be revealing for information about Digital Distortion soon.
