Iggy Azalea Feuds with Record Label Over New Track
Rapper Iggy Azalea is blasting bosses at her record label for not allowing her to make a video for her new tune “Azillion.” The 25-year-old Australian rapper posted the track to online audio sharing platform Soundcloud earlier this month to create “buzz” for her new music, but the song is not performing as well as she had hoped and she is now feuding with bosses at her record label over the song’s lack of accompanying visuals.
“Bad news update:my record label Virgin/EMI seems to feel the response to my viral record “zillon” wasnt good enough & im not allowed a video, [sic]” she wrote on Twitter. “I felt like it was dope so, whatever,” she continued. “(President of Virgin EMI) ted cockle doesnt wanna see me shine. what can i say.” “Anyhow i could say ALOT – but ill keep it mildly professional,” she added. “Just wanted to let some of you guys asking know whats happening [sic].” Azalea doesn’t seem to care about repercussions from her record label, revealing she has a plan to self-promote her new music if executives refuse to back her. “If all else fails ill just drive around LA and play my new album really loudly every monday from 4-6pm hahaha,” she concluded.
