With the disco ball in hand, Iggy shuts the nightlife down in the October issue of PAPER magazine. In her cover story, she discusses her come-up, her upcoming debut The New Classic and more.
And yet, Azalea’s upcoming LP, The New Classic, is destined to be a major part of the nightlife soundtrack for the rest of 2013, and beyond. The album marks a major stride forward for Azalea as a songwriter, as evidenced by the lyrics in “Work.” It’s a song you can easily imagine Azalea performing for years to come. It’s the cornerstone of The New Classic, and it marks a major evolution in her growth as an artist. The LP’s inspirational third single, “Change Your Life,” features a verse from T.I., and was brought to life in a cinematic, Showgirls-inspired music video.
“Oh, these new songs are about loads of stuff,” she says. “If I wrote these songs at the beginning of my career, they’d be about ass cheeks. All the songs. Now only one song’s about ass cheeks—out of sixteen. That’s growth right there.”
