Iggy Azalea, is an Australian hip hop recording artist signed to Mercury and Grand Hustle Records. Azalea is also a model represented by Wilhelmina Models, being announced the “New Face of Levi Jeans” in late 2012. She first gained recognition after the respective music videos for her songs “Pu$$y” and “Two Times,” went viral on YouTube. On September 27, 2011, Azalea released her first full-length project, a mixtape titled Ignorant Art, saying she made it “with the intent to make people question and redefine old ideals”
Not that I needed another excuse to put down the Cheetos and hit the gym….but I love this Iggy Azalea song / video for “Work”. Aside from being gorgeous, she’s an incredibly talented rapper and this song is her story of running away from home at 16 (she told her mom she was going on vacation and never came back) and moving from rural Australia to Miami to become a rapper!!
She’s going to be everywhere in 2013 -one to watch, and a debut album coming this year.
