Iggy Azalea wrote new single ‘Savior’ in response to her career not ‘going well’

The Australian rapper collaborated with Migos' Quavo on the new track

Iggy Azalea has shared a new song, ‘Savior’.

The track is the Australian rapper’s first since she shared four new songs for free via WeTransfer in November, and features a guest appearance from MigosQuavo.

Speaking to iHeartRadio about the new song, Azalea said she had written it during a “really heavy period in my life where I’d had a lot of changes that had happened overnight.”


“I’d had a big breakup, and my career wasn’t going well,” she said. “And I sort of found myself in this space where everything that I was used to, just my day-to-day routine, had abruptly stopped.

“And I just didn’t know how to get my life back together, or what my life looked like with all of these changes, and how to get a routine going again, and just how to get my happiness back and feeling normal. So that was the space that I was in when I wrote this song.”

Azalea added that ‘Savior’, which will feature on her upcoming ‘Surviving The Summer’ album, was a “hard one to put out there”. “Sometimes it takes me back to that place, which was so heavy,” she explained. “But it also makes me really happy when I hear it because I figured it out for myself.”

The rapper told fans on Twitter that the track will appear in a Super Bowl commercial tonight (February 4), while an official music video is on the way. Watch the lyric video for the track in the meantime above.



‘Surviving The Summer’ was originally titled ‘Digital Distortion’ and was expected to be released in 2016, but failed to materialise. Last year, Azalea announced that she and Azealia Banks had ended a long-running feud to collaborate together.

“Public service announcement. Azealia is going to be on [Digital Distortion],” she wrote. “We are collaborating. Burn your wigs now or preserve them in your freezer for release day.” It is unclear if the track will still appear on the album, which is slated for release later this year.
