Iggy Azalea hints that she is retiring from music

Iggy Azalea has announced that he has abandoned the recording of his next album and that he will dedicate himself professionally to design and creative direction. From Azalea’s words it is deduced that the Australian rapper plans her definitive retirement from music.

In a message shared on X, Iggy Azalea says that creative direction and design have become her greatest passions, and that “writing songs” no longer motivates her. In fact, Azalea assures that he has not returned to the album he was preparing for “months”, and that he does not feel the “urge” to do so. He finally gives it up: “I’m not going to finish it.”

Iggy claims that she has often “resisted” changes in her life to “not be perceived as someone who gives up things,” but she says that she has decided to listen to herself and pursue her own happiness in the professional fields that most fulfill her.

Iggy Azalea’s latest single, ‘Money Come’, was released last August. And her love of creative direction was evident in a video clip that was visually quite powerful and striking, like many of the ones the rapper has released during her career.

It seems that the title of Azalea’s latest album, ‘The End of an Era’, released in 2021, has been prescient. ‘The New Classic’, Azalea’s debut, celebrates its 10th anniversary next April.
