EW.com: When Iggy Azalea started working on her second album, Digital Distortion, she came up with about 20 songs, scrapped them because they â€œdidnâ€™t really have a direction, there was nothing fresh about them,â€ and went back to working with D.R.U.G.S., the same team who produced her first acclaimed mixtape.
â€œI just felt like they really understood me so I went back to working with my friends,â€ she says. â€œItâ€™s harder than my debut â€” more aggressive. Itâ€™s a little bit darker and moodier and thereâ€™s a bit more of a throwback to some of my older mixtape sounds. But itâ€™s got electronic influences used in a rap way. My version of rap is alway always controversial.â€
Digital Distortion also includes a love song, a rare move for Azalea. â€œItâ€™s the one song I did thatâ€™s lovey because [fiancÃ©] Nick [Young] was like, â€˜You donâ€™t have any love songs. I donâ€™t exist,â€™â€ she says. â€œI usually do break-up â€˜I hate you songs,â€™ but Iâ€™m getting married so I canâ€™t write those anymore.â€
After more than a year of making headlines for online tiffs with Talib Kweli and Azealia Banks, Azalea titled her album with specific care: â€œThis album isnâ€™t about Twitter battles. Itâ€™s about the way other people can distort your character and having the power through technology to do that.â€
