Iggy Azalea didn’t let broken engagement pull her down
It wasn’t that I was sad, or feeling down in the dumps, or feeling like I wanted to write heartbreak ballads IGGY AZALEA, RAPPER
Rapper Iggy Azalea (left) says she took to writing “aggressively confident” music after her engagement to NBA basketballer Nick Young broke last year. “When I started (writing), I think things were very lovey-dovey, and I was engaged and about to get married and in that head space,” Azalea told people. com about the songs on her upcoming project, Digital Distortion.
“I had a lot of changes and a break-up and was sort of like, ‘Wow, okay. Now I’m a single woman in my mid-20s and I want to talk about other stuff now!’” Her new single Switch — along with several other songs on the album — were written right after she and Young called it quits. “It wasn’t that I was sad, or feeling down in the dumps, or feeling like I wanted to write heartbreak ballads,” she said, adding, “I was kind of excited about all of the things that I could do now, and I just really wanted to talk about that on my album.” Azalea says she has a “good balance of aggressively confident songs” on the album as well as “sexy jams that you want to play with your girlfriends”.
