“7Teen” is actually not from her upcoming album. It is an unused song she recorded in 2011 and never released
AceShowbiz: Iggy Azalea recently said that she wouldn’t be releasing new music until next year. To tide fans over, the Aussie native took to Twitter over the weekend to preview a demo of never-before-heard song called “7teen”, presumably from her upcoming sophomore album.
In the 20-second snippet, which is featured in a video of two people dancing in a studio, Iggy sort of name-checks fellow rapper Future as she mentions his tour DJ when rapping, “Meet me in the Future, OK, let’s go/ Make them dance around – DJ Esco.”
“Late last night… watching these geeks dance around to demos like it was 2011 again, and laughing about it all,” the “Fancy” hitmaker wrote in the caption.
Iggy’s second album would be called “Digital Distortion” and was originally planned for release this year. A few days ago, she gave an update on the follow-up to 2014’s “The New Classic” while tweeting her response to a harsh comment Erykah Badu made about her when she was hosting the 2015 Soul Train Awards.
“I dont really know what im doing with my music release; but im finished (except for getting the features recorded),” she wrote at that time. “Right now i live in america and am very close to the Def Jam team; but im actually signed out of the UK. Things are complicated… Im ready with my music but i am also trying to restructure some things to work smoother and better for me. So we are all kind of still just figuring out how things should work and id guess thats going to take a few weeks.”
In another tweet she posted this weekend, Iggy explained to a fan why she would wait until 2016 to drop new project. “Oh, you didnt know the entire music business is no where to be found after thanksgiving? its slow moving in dec, best 2 wait,” she said.
