UPDATE: "Kream" is the name Iggy's latest single, not referencing the name the Norwegian DJ duo as confirmed by the singer on her Twitter.
Iggy Azalea is ready for her comeback. The "Fancy" rapper posted what appears to be the artwork for a new record, which sees the Aussie-bred artist bathed in a red light and floating in a pool with a handful banknotes. Kream, the Norwegian DJ duo, is namechecked on the photo which is captioned, “July 6,” See the post below.
It should all make sense. Iggy has been dropping hints about her long-delayed second album, Surviving the Summer. Earlier this month, she announced it will be available July 6. "Since i cant seem to speak about anything without being asked - when is the EP dropping," she tweeted on June 9. "S.T.S is dropping July 6th. #TheMoreYouKnow."
The record had a working title Digital Distortion, which Iggy scrapped last November in favor Surviving the Summer. A fresh deal was cut with Island and a new single, the Quavo-assisted "Savior," dropped in February. Surviving the Summer follows her 2014 release, Reclassified, a reissue her top 3 debut The New Classic.
Iggy will be keen to get back to her hot early career form, which saw her join the Beatles as the only acts to rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 hits. She did so in May 2014 with "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, and as the featured artist on Ariana Grande's "Problem," respectively.
Four years, however, is an eternity in pop culture. In an interview with Billboard published in March, Iggy spoke about mistakes made, her tumble down the slippery slope and her planned return. “Before it was like, ‘We’re at the top the mountain, and we have to stay at the top,’” she said. "I slid down the mountain a bit.”
