AceShowbiz - After squashing their longtime feud, %cIggy Azalea% and %cAzealia Banks% have been rumored to be collaborating on a new song. Iggy confirmed it herself, taking to social media to announce that her former nemesis would assist her on her long-awaited album "Digital Distortion". However, it looks like the Australian raptress' label Def Jam doesn't approve the collaboration.
Azealia recently took to Instagram Story to share that the collaboration would not happen, after all. The Harlem femcee wrote, "Iggy Azalea collab is def not happening as Def Jam says they aren't releasing anymore singles for her."
In response to Azealia's statement, Iggy took to Twitter to set the record straight. "Misinformation," she shared. "I am releasing a single. The song I had in mind for us is not a single, Banks is still very much welcome to collab w. me."
Misinformation. Iam releasing a single. The song i had in mind for us is not a single, Banks is still very much welcome to collab w. me :-)— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) 16 Agustus 2017
Def Jam's alleged decision not to release more songs for Iggy in the meantime is understandable, as the rapper's new music hasn't been doing well on music charts. In March, Iggy's "Mo Bounce" failed to enter Billboard Hot 100. Her latest single "Switch" also failed to score a place on American music charts.
The potential collaboration came after Iggy officially ended her beef with Azealia in June. The "Black Widow" hitmaker posted on social media a lengthy message to Azealia, saying, "Call me crazy, but girl; I don't hate you. I believe you may want to meet me in person so you can steal a lock of my hair and cast a spell hoping I die (lol) I don't agree with many of your opinions but honestly, at times I empathize with you as a creative Gemini woman." Azealia later acknowledged the message by reposting it on her Instagram account.
The two began feuding in 2011. They had been trading blows over music and race for years. Azealia was the first person who called Iggy out for degrading black culture. She named Iggy "Igloo Australia" and slammed her for not being involved in Black Lives Matter marches in 2014. "It's funny to see people like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen," the "Liquorice" spitter said at that time. "Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren't huh?"
