Iggy Azalea Hints At “Music Retirement”; Announces She’s Not Going To Finish Her Album

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, known for her famous hits such as “Fancy,” appears to have announced her retirement from music. Her announcement was posted on X (previously known as Twitter) on January 3, where she articulated the thought process that led her to step back from her music career. This year marks the tenth anniversary of her breakthrough in the US, and Azalea’s decision to retire may surprise her fans who have followed her journey over the past decade.

“I’ve always been someone who finds my joy in being creative & seeing my ideas come to life. For a long time I used music to deliver my big crazy ideas to the world,”  “I know a lot of people have this idea that I was ‘bullied away from music’ and that’s something I’ve always laughed at because I’d never be bullied out of anything! In fact, I’m too stubborn. I think I’ve even resisted changes within myself at times, purely because I don’t like being viewed as someone who quits.

Azalea recently shared that she is working on her fourth studio album, which is yet to be titled. The album was set to be executive-produced by Tory Lanez, who is currently incarcerated. Azalea’s last album, “The End of an Era,” was released in 2021 and featured collaborations with BIA and Tyga, among others. Aside from music, Azalea has also directed some of her music videos, including “Trouble,” featuring Jennifer Hudson, and “I Am The Stripclub,” released in 2021. In 2012, she signed a contract with Wilhelmina Models, and last year, she joined the subscription-based platform OnlyFans to share her illustrations, poetry, photography, and videos with her fans. Azalea is scheduled to perform at the 2024 AVN Awards later this year. She has earned four career Billboard 200 entries, with her Grammy-nominated debut album “The New Classic” being her highest-charting entry at No. 3. On the Billboard Hot 100, she has had 13 total entries, with three top ten hits, including “Fancy” featuring Charli XCX, “Black Widow” featuring Rita Ora, and “Problem” featuring Ariana Grande. Her latest musical release is “Money Come,” released last year. A remix of the song featuring Ivorian Doll and Big Boss Vette was also released.
