Iggy Azalea - Team
In October 2015, Azalea announced her second studio album was titled Digital Distortion and set be released in the following year, along with a buzz track titled "Zillion" and the project's lead single premiering before its release. In December, during a Twitter Q&A with fans, she revealed that the lead single would be titled "Team", later sharing a snippet of the track and clarifying: "lead is TEAM. meaning: I've got my own back, I am my own team. 20% meaningful 70% bop 10% ratchet." In March 2016, she announced the song would be released on 18 March and unveiled the single's cover artwork, a "colorfully distorted" portrait of Azalea with a white cap. She also shared a second snippet featuring Azalea chanting the lyrics: "Yeah, that's all I need/ That's all I need/ Baby I got me, only friend I need/ Playing on my team is someone like me."
Iggy Azalea - Team
On 31 March 2016, the music video was uploaded on Azalea's Vevo channel. Directed by Fabien Montique, the visuals start off with Azalea making a break from a crowd in a Ferrari, narrowly escaping the stampede, performing donuts and burnouts to make her way to an airport where she heads through security before meeting up with her team, composed by dancers and supporters, on a private hangar. From there, everyone douses an aircraft in spray paint, covering it with graffiti tags related to her upcoming album "Digital Distortion". Azalea is then also featured in a dance breakdown. The police eventually show up and escort Azalea inside the jet where she comes face to face with an eerily familiar figure with a digitally distorted face that she had encountered along the clip and is now recognized by herself.
Today Iggy Azalea released "Team," the lead single from the new album Digital Distortion she's been threatening all year. Unlike the summer-debacle-slash-possible-retconned-single "Azillion," "Team" kinda hits if you relax and enjoy it as peppy, dated basketball bleachers music. It's basically a jock jam. There's a place for those, right? "Team" feels like a big to-do; the stomping production worms through weird changes. This could be the product of the basketball team worth of producers credited here.
Since claiming she would be quitting social media last night, it looks like the rapper has done just that. An hour after she said the Social Media posting would now be handled by her team and not personally, three pictures were posted to Instagram that are very basic in nature, a contrast to pics posted previously that included those with her boyfriend Nick Young.
Lorde and Iggy Azalea, two of the biggest new female stars in music, have teamed up to hit out at critics who ask for interview time and gig tickets - only to then slate them in subsequent reviews.
The name would imply that this is a rap anthem about Iggy's Taylor Swiftian squad of buddies. When you get to the chorus, though, you'll understand what Iggy really means by the term: "Baby I got me/And that's all I need/Baby I got me/Only friend I need/Playing on my team." 041b061a72
