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”.
