Iggy Azalea is reborn in the spiritual video for “Savior,” the Quavo-assisted single off her upcoming album Surviving the Summer.
The symbolic visual, directed by Colin Tilley, takes place inside a Neon Cathedral decked out with neon fixtures and religious imagery. Iggy, dressed in all white, walks down the aisle of a church, and is also seen in black with a neon halo around her head and burning roses in her hands. As the video progresses, she gets baptized and eventually rises from the darkness to a place of light, ultimately realizing that she is her own savior.
“The song itself speaks to the notion of looking for a savior when you feel like you’re at your absolute lowest, an idea that resonates with almost everyone’s need for companionship,” explained Iggy. “However, upon further thought, I believe that there is an even deeper message hidden in the song: Before someone else can save you, you need to find peace within yourself. In searching for a savior, you will find one, but it may not be the person you were expecting. You, ultimately, are your own greatest savior.”
Up next, Iggy is set to release her long-awaited sophomore album Surviving the Summer, the follow-up to her 2014 debut The New Classic.
