After months of alluding to a collaboration with pop super star Britney Spears, Iggy Azalea has finally confirmed that their duet will be the first single off her upcoming second studio album. Azalea revealed that the track would be titled “Pretty Girls,” confirming rumors that have been circulating for the last week. At this time, there is still no confirmation regarding when the track will be released.
The album is currently untitled, but Azalea decided to focus her attention on the recording process in the wake of her postponed The Great Escape Tour. She has revealed that she would love to have the album out by the “end of 2015,” which would correlate well with her postponed tour dates.
In the past, Azalea has teased fans with details about “Pretty Girls.” She has commented that the track would be a “massive hit” that it would be “coming soon,” but she wasn’t able to confirm much beyond those details. Spears has remained similarly tight-lipped, confirming that the track would be a “club banger” capable of getting spins on a dance floor, but refusing to reveal any other details.
Last week fans started speculating that “Pretty Girls” would be the title of the duo’s collaboration when Dan Wootton of The Sun released the title on social media. After doing a little digging, fans discovered that Little Mix and Azalea wrote the track with production by The Invisible Men.
The “Fancy” rapper had nothing but positive things to say about Britney Spears. She revealed that the international icon is “super sweet, and I just to hang out with her all the time.” Azalea also commented that “Pretty Girls” has reignited her passion to release new music. This is positive for the star, since she has found herself embroiled in some serious battles lately.
Between her pushed back tour and her decision to leave social media, Azalea has found been surrounded by much speculation in the last few months. The rapper explained that the tour got pushed back due to “production delays,” explaining that the delay was so significant due to venues being book so far out in advance. The show will continue as it was planned in the past, with Azalea revealing that it was have a “powerful 80s androgynous women vibe.” Here’s hoping the new music news gives fans and critics something to look forward to.
