Iggy Azalea's Digital Distortion maybe dropping soon, she has unveiled her brand new single “Switch” today (May 19), a club-ready collaboration with Anitta that’s eagerly inviting anyone within earshot to head straight to the dancefloor.
Iggy told People in an interview that the song is primarily a battle cry for women.
“I wanted to make a song that could be fun to dance to, but the lyrics when you really listen to them are very powerful,” she said, adding “it’s not a victimized sexualization” but, on the contrary, more a matter of “a woman being in control of what I want to do and when I want to go and when I want to stop.”
Azalea added that Anitta’s feature seemed like a natural fit.
“[The song] has that tropical vibe and a Latin flavor people are really enjoying right now,” she said. “I wanted to find the perfect girl who already had that kind of style and as soon as I saw her videos on YouTube, I was like ‘This is the perfect person!’ She’s very unapologetic and strong but super feminine. We clicked straight away.”
The “Switch” video’s still awaiting release, but Azalea insists it’ll be worth the wait.
“It’s sort of this fantasy safari of badass women,” she said. “Some of the stuff I would see back on camera and think to myself, ‘Wow, this must seem like it’s all green-screen,’ but it’s really happening! I feel really nostalgic thinking about the music videos I liked as a child and not knowing how much was reality or what was computer-generated. I want to be able to give that to the kids and adults of my generation.”
