Iggy Azalea is back with the lead single to her next album, Digital Distortion. “Team” was released on Friday morning (Mar. 18) and finds Azalea delivering rap verses and a pop chorus—a change-up from guest-star-assisted hits like “Fancy” and “Black Widow.”
Iggy Iggs references both Hans Zimmer (!) and Chance The Rapper in the first verse, then spits, “Watch that new car dash/Call me Kylie” in the second. In between, the Australian hip-hop star declares, “Baby I got me/And that’s all I need,” in a moment of snarling independence; the sentiment would have made it impossible for anyone else besides Azalea to handle the song’s hook.
“Team” has been teased for months as the first single for Digital Distortion, which serves as the follow-up to 2014’s The New Classic and has yet to receive a release date. “Fancy” was declared Song of the Summer in 2014, and Azalea went on to earn a Best New Artist nomination at last year’s GRAMMY Awards.
The new single is now available on iTunes and at Spotify. A “dance video” accompanies the track on YouTube, hinting at a more elaborate, Iggy-starring visual coming soon.
