About New Classic [Deluxe][Best Buy Exclusive]

The New Classic is the debut studio album by Australian rapper Iggy Azalea. It was released on 21 April 2014, by Def Jam Recordings in United States, Virgin EMI in United Kingdom and affiliated record labels in other countries. Azalea came to prominence, after releasing her debut mixtape Ignorant Art and subsequently aligning herself with American rapper T. I. and his Hustle Gang imprint. Azalea first mentioned plans for the album in December 2011, but after numerous delays and label conflicts, Azalea eventually secured herself a record contract through Island Def Jam Music Group (now defunct). Though generally categorized as a hip hop album, The New Classic also incorporates elements of other genres, such as EDM, dance-pop and trap music in its production. The album debuted inside the top five of several charts worldwide, and produced five singles. The album's lead single, "Work", performed well commercially, charting at number 17 in the UK charts and also eventually charting in Australia and the United States. The second single, "Bounce", saw a similar success in the United Kingdom, peaking at number 13. The third single, "Change Your Life", peaked at number 10 on the UK Singles Chart, her first UK Top 10 single, and also made appearances in the Australian Top 50 singles (Azalea's first to do so) and on New Zealand and US charts. The fourth single, "Fancy" featuring British singer Charli XCX was an international success, reaching the top-five in Australia and the United Kingdom, and peaking at number one in New Zealand, the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States and the Canadian Hot 100. The fifth single, "Black Widow" featuring British singer Rita Ora, peaked at number 4 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming her highest charting single as a lead artist on that chart, and also peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. It won the Breakthrough Artist Release at the 2014's ARIA Music Awards and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album at the 2014 American Music Awards.
