Iggy Azalea signs to Island Def Jam
The Island Records president David Massey said “We are beyond proud and excited to welcome Iggy to the Island Def Jam family. Iggy has created a massive buzz and rightfully so: she’s incredibly talented, she’s focused, driven, and has great creative tastes and instincts. She is nothing short of an international star, and the team here -- including Steve Bartels, Chris Anokute, Karen Kwak, our chairman Barry Weiss and myself -- are thrilled she’s chosen Island Records as her U.S. home.”
Azalea expressed her excitement and said "I am elated to be a part of the Island Def Jam family! After speaking in depth with David, Steve and Chris, it became clear that Island Records was attuned to the type of artist I am. They are a great addition to my UK team. Along with T.I. and the Grand Hustle family, I couldn't have asked for a more understanding and aspirational group of people to work with.
Iggy is promoting her new single “Work” off the new album “The New Classic”.
