Ever since Iggy Azalea was posting pictures that were related to her new music, I’ve been dying to hear what it would sound like. And yes, I know that’s all everyone’s been waiting for, but what I was interested in hearing what (new) direction she was going in. The reason I expected to hear a shift in style is because the photos she kept releasing didn’t match her previous music. I know that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but when it comes to music, I do feel like the artwork is supposed to represent a certain era of a musician’s career.
Well, in this case I was right. Iggy Azalea’s new song doesn’t sound like anything she’s released so far and even though I love her last album (Reclassified), I am really glad that Team’s got this different, fresh sound. It’s still a Rap song but it’s got this EDM/DnB element, which is quite surprising (in a good way though)! I think that because of the ‘merge’ of those two very different genres, the song is going to appeal to people who may not necessarily be a fan of Iggy’s previous music. I only listenend to it a couple times but the chorus is already stuck in my head (not the lyrics but the melody itself).
Iggy’s new single sounds a lot better than expected and I cannot wait to hear the rest of the album! Listen to it here and tell me what you think!
