Iggy Azalea Proves There’s an ‘I’ in ‘Team’ With New Single Snippet

“I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul” — William Ernest Henley and Iggy Azalea, more or less.

The rapper, whose sophomore LP is inching closer to release, unveiled a snippet of her forthcoming single “Team” via Twitter Wednesday (March 9), and immediately killed the notion that the title signaled some kind of sisterhood or solidarity. Instead, the track centers on the state of Iggy, alone, proving there is, in fact, an “I” in “Team.”

Baby I’ve got me / Only friend I need playing on my team / Is someone like me,” Iggy declares in a new rap-sung hybrid. The 19-second sampling’s feisty and self-assured, and very indicative of what’s to come from Digital Distortion, she told Elle Canada in February.

“It has a bit of an electronic, digital influence, so the name fits sonically,” Iggy said. “But then, of course, topically, we all know the different things that were said about me in 2015 — some of them were fair and some of them, I think, were unfair. I just think it’s interesting that we live in this age of digital distortion where we’re all distorting each other and distorting ourselves and our perception of who we all are, and none of it is really accurate anymore.”

Listen to a bit of “Team” above, tell us what you think and hang tight for the song’s official release on March 18.
