Iggy Azalea is Back with Brand New Single “Team”

da889953-e771-4c52-b437-33a7ce65eaccGlobal multi-platinum Def Jam Recordings artist Iggy Azalea announces her return to the music scene with the release of “Team,” the lead single from her upcoming new album DIGITAL DISTORTION.

​“Team,” Iggy’s first totally solo single in three years, was co-written by her, and was produced by Chordz and Fuego. The track was co-produced by Omega with additional production by Ryan and Lou.

​In candid dialogue with her core fans – The Azaleans – through her raw, unfiltered Twitter account, Iggy explained the message behind “Team”: “I’ve got my own back” and “I am my own team. 20% meaningful 70% bop 10% ratchet.”

​With a GRAMMY Best New Artist nomination, a shelf full of American Music Awards, ASCAP Pop and Rhythm & Soul Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, MTV VMAs from the U.S., Europe and Japan, Teen Choice Awards, and much more, Iggy Azalea owned 2014 with her back-to-back worldwide #1 multi-platinum smash hits:

• “Fancy” (featuring Charli XCX, certified RIAA 5x-platinum, with over 700 million YouTube views to date);
• “Black Widow” (featuring Rita Ora, 3x-platinum, over 410 million combined YouTube views to date); and
• “Problem” (collaboration with Ariana Grande, 6x-platinum, over 772 million YouTube views to date).

After years of honing her signature style on hip-hop’s underground circuit, Iggy Azalea exploded onto the charts and emerged as the breakout story of 2014. Her 4x Platinum worldwide smash, “Fancy” featuring Charli XCX, rocketed to #1, breaking airplay and Spotify records along the way. After an astounding 7 weeks at #1, Iggy Azalea made history on the Billboard Hot 100 as “Fancy,” rewrote the record for the longest-leading No. 1 by a female rapper. Iggy made chart history again as the first artist since The Beatles to rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 hits. “Fancy” was unilaterally dubbed 2014’s “Song Of The Summer.” Iggy’s debut album The New Classic peaked at #1 on the Billboard Rap Album charts, the first for an international female artist. Iggy has been nominated for 4 Grammys, 6 AMAs, 9 VMAs and countless other awards and accolades. She has performed on TV’s biggest stages, including Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Fallon, Ellen and more.
