Just in case you forgot, last week, Iggy Azalea released her new EP ‘Survive the Summer.’ The 6 track project featured 4 insane singles and 2 massive collabs with Tyga & Wiz Khalifa. But guess what, Iggy is nowhere near done dropping collabs this year. In fact, she has an unreleased collab with none-other than DJ Fresh.
In a recent interview with Idolator, Iggy Azalea revealed that she has been working in the studio for years on a collab with DJ Fresh. She also revealed that their monster anthem will be released later this summer, in a matter of weeks! So read everything she had to say about the collab below, and check out the full interview HERE.
I have a really cool collaboration coming out with DJ Fresh that I’m excited about. We’re mixing a song and it’s me and DJ Fresh’s collaboration. It’s gonna be out in the summer. In a matter of weeks. I’m really excited ’cause he’s going to have a music video. Actually, we’ve been going back and forth with the treatments today between my interviews. But my collaboration with DJ Fresh has been years in the making. I’ll tell you that. Because that man has sent me beats and I’ll be like, “Oh, I don’t really like this one” or “not quite.”
Sometimes he’ll send me something and I’ll love it, and I’ll send back a verse and he’ll be like, “No, I don’t love the verse. I’ll pass.” We have tried to collaborate like four or five times, once a year or once every two years since probably about 2013, he has sent me something. Then finally he sent me this song, and I was like, “Yes, this is the one.” So I wrote my verse and he liked this one and it worked out. I think it’s coming out in August.
I’m really excited for that. I really like the music DJ Fresh makes. I like the EDM sound still and I always will like those electronic elements. I think it’s good for me to collaborate with him, because it gives me a chance to go back into that world without it having to be on my project. It gives me the freedom to keep things very rap heavy and aggressive on my own project, but do something still in that other lane that I like so much.
