12 Songs, 41 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Though it seems crazy in hindsight, Iggy Azalea's The New Classic was slow to catch on, with the singles "Work" and "Bounce" earning only modest attention before "Fancy" blew up, catapulting the Aussie rapper to global stardom. On this semi-sequel, featuring five new songs, Azalea upbraids her haters on the slinking "Heavy Crown": "To everyone who said I'd never make it/Oh lord, were you mistaken." "Beg for It" mimics the unhurried pulse of "Fancy," right down to MØ's chorus, and "Iggy SZN" is a thumping victory lap. "Thumping," however, is new territory: this light-on-its-feet soul number features Jennifer Hudson and recalls The Jackson Five.
