Australian hip hop star Iggy Azalea is without a doubt, currently the hottest artist in the music industry, and after the massive success of “fancy”, everyone wants to work with her. Azalea’s collaboration with Ariana Grande on the track “Problem” currently sits at the top of both the Mainstream and Rhythmic Based Charts, replacing Fancy which currently sits at #2, showing that even when she gets knocked off the top spot, it’s because of her own doing.

No one see’s her potential and talent more than her mentor T.I, who enlisted her talents for the latest single, “No Mediocre”, which is off his first release from his brand new partnership with Columbia Records. The song has garnered a lot of mainstream attention lately, as the result of a twitter war that occurred between T.I and Azealia Banks, after Banks essentially called his wife “mediocre”.

 

The music video, however, is anything but mediocre, taking place in Rio De Janeiro, as T.I. plays soccer and dances alongside some of the sexiest women alive, Iggy included.

Not to be topped, Fancy featured artist Charli XCX looks just as good on her own. Her breakout single, “Boom Clap”, was released with much acclaim alongside the promotion for the 20th century fox film, the Fault in our stars, and is the current single on the films soundtrack.

Charli could be the next star on the rise and certainly has Iggy to thank for it. With all the star power Iggy is lending to other artists, being featured left and right, it’s nice to know that she will be getting some help of her own in the form of Rock Nation pop singer Rita Ora. The two have collaborated on what will now be her fourth single on her debut album, The New Classic, the fan favorite, “Black Widow.”

In an interview with Hot New Hip Hop’s Ashlee Ray, Azalea said “We’re gonna have a very crazy music video, with a lot of other people that you guys may know, playing different characters. I’m really excited about it.” For those who haven’t already heard it, the track  is a swagger-filled track co-written by Katy Perry and produced by Stargate! Looks like Iggy has really proven her album to actually be, The New Classic as she positions herself to be one of this generation’s true superstars in Hip Hop.
