Iggy Azalea claims her label won’t pay for ‘Azillion’ music video

The rapper says that EMI felt response to her single “wasn’t good enough”

Iggy Azalea has accused her label of refusing to fund a music video for her latest single ‘Azillion’.

The Australian rapper hit out at Virgin/EMI in a series of tweets claiming that label were disappointed with the song’s performance.

“My record label Virgin/EMI seems to feel the response to my viral record “Azillion” wasn’t good enough,” Azalea revealed, “I’m not allowed a video.”




She also suggested that the label were pushing her to collaborate with a pop star: “They expect me to find a pop star to wack onto a radio friendly song with me rapping the verses.”

Azalea is due to release second album ‘Digital Distortion’, the follow-up to her 2014 debut ‘The New Classic’, later this year.

Last year, Azalea was parodied by Erykah Badu during the Soul Train Awards. During her opening monologue, Badu pretended to answer her phone and said: “Who is this? Oh Iggy Azalea, hey! No, no, no, no, you can come ’cause what you do definitely is not rap.”


The rapper later took to Twitter to brush off the diss.
