Iggy Azalea Wants a Missy Elliott Collaboration, Debuts ‘Work’ Remix With Wale
After months of waiting, fans of Iggy Azalea can mark early September in their calendars. The Aussie stunner reveals that her debut album, ‘The New Classic,’ will be out in early fall.
Iggy didn’t reveal which special guests would be on her album when she spoke with MTV Hive, but she did say bff Rita Ora might make the cut. “Rita’s not on it right now, but she might be. See? I hear everyone’s going to be on it. I heard Rihanna’s on it. They’re not yet,” says Iggy.
However, the raptress did make mention of her dream collaboration, which would be producer-rapper-singer Missy Elliott. “I’d love to collaborate with Missy Elliott at one point,” Iggy admitted. “I idolized her. I think she did a great job on J. Cole’s ‘Nobody’s Perfect,’ but I’d like to hear her rap as well. I would like to see her rap a verse.”
She remains tight-lipped about the songs to come from her forthcoming project, but one track that is sure to make the cut is her electro-driven rap tune ‘Work,’ of which she released a remix for today. Wale shows up on the effort, flexing his hip-hop muscles with rhymes like “I caught her / You forced her / Like Australian for beer” and “I’m just watching Iggy pop / Don’t stop it girl, you rock ‘n’ roll.”
