Rap-Up TV: Iggy Azalea Rides Elephant Through India in ‘Bounce’ Video

Iggy Azalea

With the ink still drying on her new deal with Island Def Jam, Iggy Azalea stopped by our Hollywood studio to discuss all the buzz surrounding her career and why she decided to sign with Def Jam over Interscope.

“Def Jam’s just always been my favorite team, and I love everybody over there,” the Aussie rap sensation tells Rap-Up TV. “They’re really young and energetic and you can tell when they’re passionate about the project.”

While she continues to promote “Work” as her first U.S. single, she recently traveled to Mumbai, India, to shoot a Bollywood-themed video for her next U.K. single, “Bounce,” calling the experience one of the highlights of her career.

“Shooting ‘Bounce’ in India was surreal,” recalls Iggy. “It’s just so crazy to dream something so big and actually see it happen.”

She imagined putting an elephant in the video, and she was able to make it happen. But it wasn’t an easy task.

“It took us a month to find it and we got it, and it was such a shit fight,” says the 22-year-old, who had to get the Indian mafia to shut down the street. “We just took this elephant and thugged it down the street, and it was insane.”

See Iggy’s dreams come to life when the big-budget video premieres next week.

    Everything she said about Def Jam (Island Def Jam), Amerie said also the exact same thing back in 2009. LMAO it’s like Iggy took her same quote “the team is young, energetic…” – and look how she ended up. I hope Iggy will succeed tho


  16. Huh

    “Mumbai, India”? That’s like saying “LA, USA” lol! Why did you skip the state? And we know where Mumbai is.

    And “a Bollywood-themed video”? Just because she’ll wearing South Asian clothes and filming in Mumbai doesn’t make it “Bollywood-themed.” It’ll be Iggy themed.
