After a lengthy break from releasing new music, Iggy Azalea returned in 2016 with "Azillion." The song, which she has previously called a "buzz track" and "viral record," was meant to launch the rollout for her upcoming album, Digital Distortion. But, according to Iggy, there's a major roadblock in adding momentum to the song: Her label.
In a series of tweets early Thursday (Jan. 21), the rapper said that Virgin EMI doesn't think the reponse to the song wasn't "good enough" to make a video shoot worthwhile. She specifically called out Ted Cockle, the president of the label, and said that she hopes to make the switch to Def Jam (she's on DJ in the U.S. and Virgin EMI in the U.K., which share Universal Music Group as a parent company).
In almost two weeks, the track, which you can stream below, has just under 900,000 plays on Soundcloud.
