Iggy Azalea says she ‘almost collaborated with Lorde’ on her new album

It's one of her 'artistic goals' to team up with the New Zealand teen

Iggy Azalea has revealed she nearly got to work with Lorde on her upcoming album, ‘Digital Distortion’.

The Australian rapper recently revealed the second track from the record, ‘Team’.

According to Idolator, Azalea has given a new interview to Remix magazine during which she discusses trying to collaborate with the New Zealand teen.


“I almost collaborated with Lorde on this album,” she said. “I sent her the song and it didn’t get done in time, but it’s one of my artistic goals to collaborate with her.”

She continued: “There’s this one song I wrote for the album but it needed a female singer and she was my number one. She was going to do it, she was totally keen, but she was too busy with her own album.”

“I hope it can happen, if not on this album then another. I think she’s awesome.”

Azalea, who hasn’t shied away from controversy or public spats in the past, also said that one of the reasons so gets into so much trouble is because they don’t get her humour.

“I think a lot of times people don’t understand my humor over here and people think it’s me being bitchy,” she explained.
