Watch the video to Iggy Azalea's brand new single, "Team," off her upcoming album "Digital Distortion."
Iggy Azalea was quiet on the music front for most of last year, and yesterday, she revealed that the media's manipulation of her narrative caused her to suffer a "psychotic breakdown," which led her to cancel her summer tour. She's now back with her first new single since "Pretty Girls," last May's collaboration with Britney Spears.
Iggy's new single, "Team," arrives with an accompanying "dance and lyric" video, taking on the strategy used by Justin Bieber in releasing a viral-ready video starring a team of professional dancers, and not the artist behind the song. The track itself is some of Iggy's hardest-sounding material since her early singles, as she delivers animated punchlines atop a glitchy, bass-heavy beat. She sings in auto-tune on the anthemic chorus, and she bites off Juvenile's "Back That Azz Up" flow on her closing verse, though she's hardly the first rapper to do that.
"Team" is the first single off Iggy's next album, Digital Distortion, which does not yet have a release date. Who's excited to hear more?
