Iggy Azalea’s No. 1 hit “Fancy” was just crowned the “song of the summer” by Billboard and with fall right around the corner the Aussie rapper is planning to continue her radio reign well into the new year.
Iggy announced via Twitter that she will be re-releasing her debut album, The New Classic, in a deluxe edition featuring new music, including another projected radio smash with Ellie Goulding. “Shooting the album re pack cover art this week. Can't wait for you guys to hear some new stuff. six new tracks. <3,” Iggy tweeted. “Me and Ellie Goulding have a nice little numberrrr together on there too. FYI,” she added in another post.
Fans are still jamming to the original album, which peaked on the Billboard 200 charts at No.3 and is still going strong in the Top 20 at the No. 19 spot. The bold move may pay off for the artist, who currently has features on two other heavy rotation hits, “Mediorce,” with T.I., and her collabo with Rita Ora on “Black Widow.”
Iggy plans to drop the updated project on Sept. 17 less than six months after dropping the album in April.
