Iggy Azalea is free.
Yesterday, the Australian rapper took to her Twitter to announce that her relationship with Island Records has ended. “I’m officially unsigned!” she tweeted, adding, “Wild you spend so long trying to get IN a record deal… never thought I’d be so elated to be OUT of one,” she wrote in an emoji-filled post. “now I’m free to release whatever kinda music I like, whenever I’d like woooo!”
Iggy added that she hopes to release new music early next year. “Well still no music this year tho…,” she told curious fans. “I am nowhere near ready direction wise etc with the stuff I’ve been working on and I don’t wanna jump the gun and have some messy era aesthetically. I’m aiming to be ready to share new music early next year!”
She followed with a pair of tweets saying that she “Woke up happy as f— today” and jokingly offered herself up for work: “Yup! Still in the studio! Who need a feature? I’m back on the block. Haha.”
It had been a rocky few months for the Australian rapper, who was so miserable earlier this year that her management had to stage an intervention, one that resulted in enrolling in a facility in Arizona.
Variety adds that the rapper had moved from Def Jam to Island earlier this year (both companies are part of Universal Music Group) and released her first music in four years, the “Survive the Summer” EP. A fall tour was scheduled and announced, however it was canceled last month, officially due to “unforeseen circumstances” but presumably due to slow ticket sales.
Now, Iggy is free and fans can’t wait to see her working again.
