Iggy Azalea Gushes Over J.Lo Collaboration

Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Lopez

Iggy Azalea is quickly becoming the go-to girl for features. After linking with Ariana Grande on her single “Problem,” the Aussie rapper has collaborated with Jennifer Lopez.

J.Lo revealed that Iggy will be featured on her upcoming album A.K.A., due June 17.

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Iggy dished on getting the call from the pop superstar.

“She actually only asked me about two weeks ago, so I didn’t have to keep the secret for too long,” said Iggy. “When I opened on tour for BeyoncĂ©, I had to keep that under wraps for months, which really killed me. So this is a breeze.”

It was a dream come true for Iggy, who grew up admiring J.Lo. “I love her,” said Iggy. “I definitely used to sit in my bedroom as a young girl and lip-sync Jennifer Lopez songs, so it’s very cool to have a song with her on her album.”

Her mother was even more excited and posted an Instagram video of her singing along to Lopez’ “Jenny From the Block.”

Iggy has two singles in the top 5 this week. She is featured on Ariana’s “Problem,” which debuts at No. 3, while her own hit “Fancy” moves up to No. 4, making her the third female artist to place her first two Hot 100 hits in the top five simultaneously.

She will perform at KIIS FM’s Wango Tango in Carson, Calif. on Saturday.

    So proud of her. Go Iggy. what I’ve always loved about Iggy is that she’s so humble. Humility will get you far. Now if we could get Azealia Banks to follow suit

    @K.I.N.G, no u have a seat –> _/…..y’all hate to give Iggy or another female credit bcuz she’s being successful or slaying the charts. Nobody even knws charli in the US so Iggy mainly got the hit by herself,but we knw nicki got her so called top 10 hits mainly bcuz of the artist songs she was featured on like madonna,britney,justin,lil wayne,drake. Those artists r bigger than her. She soldout to get big hits like superbass and starships with those gimmicks as well.

    @EveRyder, Not true. Charli XCX had previously charted in the top 10 with “I Love It” by Icona Pop, also a relatively unknown group at that point. It would also interest you to note that 2 solo singles by Nicki, “Starships” and “Super Bass” both charted in the top 5 and several others including “Your Love”, “Moment 4 Life ft.Drake”, ‘Fly”, “Pound The Alarm” reached the top 20.Plus, if there’s another indicator of success, it would be album sales. Pink Friday, Nicki’s debut album has sold over 2m copies worldwide, with 340k copies in the States in the first week alone. Iggy, in comparison, has only managed about 50k. I’m not saying Iggy isn’t a good rapper. I enjoyed her verse in Problem but it is undeniable that Nicki Minaj is still a rap icon and the most successful female in hip-hop.

    @ObeyT,

    Hate to break it to you but that 52k was first week just for us sales.

    Also, to spew that much hate on someone that has given no indication that she is anything but a really nice person, go get yourself right.

    It’s funny how Nicki Minaj fans can’t stomach the fact that another female rapper is charting on Billboard. They were the same ones poking fun at the female rappers who came before Nicki that were not having as much success as they once had. Now that a new upcoming female rapper is gaining exposure they are hating on it.

    @Shayla, no one really cares tbh. if you took the time to look around, you would notice it’s always the nicki haters bringing her up. we aren’t in the wrong for giving them a reality check. this girl flopped and can only hope to chart well. nicki charts well and sells. facts.
