Iggy Azalea isn’t one to let a broken engagement get her down.

Instead of wallowing in her split last year from Nick Young, the rapper, 26, used it to fuel her empowering new music.

“When I started [writing], I think things were very lovey-dovey, and I was engaged and about to get married and in that head space,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively about the inspiration behind the songs on her upcoming LP Digital Distortion. “I had a lot of changes and a breakup and was sort of like, ‘Wow, okay. Now I’m a single woman in my mid-20s and I want to talk about other stuff now!”

Her new single “Switch” — along with several other songs on the album – were written right after she and Young called it quits. “It wasn’t that I was sad or feeling down in the dumps or feeling like I wanted to write heartbreak ballads,” she explains. “I was kind of excited about all of the things that I could do now, and I just really wanted to talk about that on my album.”

The Aussie has a “good balance of aggressively confident, ‘Screw you, I believe in me!’” songs on the album as well as “sexy jams that you want to play with your girlfriends,” she says. “It’s a good mix of both.”

Azalea’s empowerment doesn’t just come from bouncing back after a breakup, however. Over the years, she’s gained a confidence after repeatedly dealing with people who didn’t believe in her.

“I always had to be my own support system and my mom would always say ‘Fake it ’til you make it,’ so I just say, ‘You’re beautiful’ or ‘You’re the best’ even if you don’t believe it,” she says. “Eventually, you believe the words you’re saying. I like to always have those strong messages for women because we need to have as many female voices as we can telling people that.”

One of those female voices includes her pal Katy Perry, who helped write her 2014 hit “Black Widow.”

“I love Katy. I met her in 2013 and I really owe her “Black Widow,” she says of their friendship. “It wouldn’t exist without her, so she’s always been somebody I feel very indebted to and a great friend.”

Perry recently voiced her support for Azalea’s new music on Instagram, and “she doesn’t have to do that at all,” adds the rapper. “I really appreciate the ongoing support with her over the years. To me, she’s a real girl’s girl, and I love that.”

Iggy Azalea‘s “Switch” video leaked over the weekend. There is a lot to take in, from wildcats, to barely-there swimsuits, to alligator ice sculptures on leash. Unfortunately, because the video was still a work in progress when it surfaced online, the pop-rap star says she might not release it, after all.

“I just wanted to clarify for everyone saying I should put it on Vevo,” Iggy said on Snapchat. “The video is not even finished being edited yet. We had media partners and other bigger plans for the video on the right day of release. And this leaking really just ruins things for [featured vocalist] Anitta and I. So I’m really disappointed that this has happened. I don’t know if the video will come out or be released at all now. And if it does, I hope that everyone will still support it.”

“Switch,” released just days ago, was Iggy aiming for song of the summer status. With its feather-light dance production, combined with its sassy lyrics, “Switch” is clearly Iggy’s offering to pop radio, while predecessor “Mo Bounce” was better suited for the club. “Switch” also got Katy Perry‘s stamp of approval.

Iggy and Anitta had only recently wrapped the “Switch” video shoot. See Iggy talk what could have been below.

Zedd might have already released ‘Stay‘ with Alessia Cara, but from the likes of it the Russian-German DJ/producer has a lot more to come.

Having teased a collaboration with Khalid back in March, the ‘Clarity’ producer has confirmed that he is also collaborating with Iggy Azalea and Liam Payne (of One Direction). A recent tweet from Zedd’s Philippines fan base, which was later retweeted by Zedd himself, mentions collaborations with Iggy Azalea and Liam Payne, which most probably could end up on the producer’s third studio album.

Iggy Azalea pushed back her album ‘Digital Distortion‘ last year to feature more material, which also included a possible collaboration with Zedd. Could it be the same one? We’ll just have to wait and watch till then.

In case you haven’t heard, Iggy Azalea is back. Last week, the Aussie rapper unveiled the first single from her upcoming album Digital Distortion, an infectious track titled “Mo Bounce.” To help spread the word about her latest effort, Azalea has tried to spark a bit of viral marketing. She took to Twitter trumpeting the #MoBounceChallenge. That’s right good people of the Internet, Iggy Azalea wants to see you shake your ass.

The rules to participate in the challenge are simple. Simply grab your phone, put on “Mo Bounce,” switch to video, hit record, shake your ass, and then upload to social media. The results have been wildly entertaining as you can imagine.

Talking to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 just after debuting “Mo Bounce,” Iggy said that the song is “probably the most fun record on my album,” while adding, “I’ve thought a really long time about what I’ve wanted to put out… I was going to say something super serious and then, I don’t know, I’ve been in such a good mood lately.” She also pointed out that “It’s summer and I just wanted to twerk in a video! Like I’m single. I wanna have a good time.”

As for the rest of Digital Distortion, she told the Apple Music DJ that “I executive produced this second album entirely and I just feel like it’s a much better reflection of me. In a way closer to the mixtape stuff that I had total control over as well.”

Iggy Azalea twerks her way back in shape for an upcoming show in Hong Kong.

The Australian showstopper Iggy Azalea has decided to twerk her way back in her fans’ hearts. The “Team” rapper made a video of herself jiggling her jelly as her dance instructor gives her directions. She shared the visual gem on Instagram.

The clip starts with Iggy sitting with her legs folded on a gym mat. She’s wearing six-inch heels, a blue crop top and red poom poom shorts. Her dance instructor shouts numbers while she crouches down to a prone position like a feline. Though the image inverts into negative colors, her bum visibly quakes as the swift rapper lifts and wiggles her hips to the sky.

Iggy made it clear in the caption that she’s gearing up for her performance in Hong Kong on the 26 at the Dragonland Music Festival. The 26-year-old’s upcoming Digital Distortion should drop later this year. She hasn’t put out an album since 2014.
