Iggy Azalea Stands in Solidarity With Herself on ‘Team’

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Well, we now officially know what Iggy Azalea‘s daily affirmations sound like.

Very early this morning (March 19), the Australian-born rapper released the full version of “Team,” the newest track off of her forthcoming sophomore album, and made one very clear declaration: I don’t need any of y’all (except, of course, the close-to-a-dozen dancers who appear to exact stunning choreography in an accompanying lyric video).

“Team,” a rap/pop lovechild, gives Digital Distortion an immediate sure-thing for radio, and features undulating buzzsaw-bass and Iggy’s own venture into rap-sung territory.

Baby I got me / Only friend I need playing on my team / Is someone like me,” the rapper meticulously croons between verses that feature mentions of Kylie Jenner, Reggie Miller and, naturally, prolific film composer Hans Zimmer. Because it’s not truly hip hop without an allusion to the guy who scored Mufasa’s death in The Lion King.

The song’s now available on iTunes, and Iggy’s scheduled to perform it next week on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, according to Billboard.

In February, Iggy told Elle Canada that the new LP’s sound aims to mimic the haze and confusion of a frantic social media era.

“It has a bit of an electronic, digital influence, so the name fits sonically,” she said. “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 “Team” above, tell us what you think and hang tight for news on the release of Digital Distortion.
