While promoting her sleepwear line back in September, Britney Spears was asked who she’d most like to collaborate with. Her first answer: “Katy Perry.” And her second: “Iggy.” No word on whether Spears’ and Perry’s relationship will expand beyond trading compliments on one another’s full-body denim wear, but Iggy Azalea confirmed on Twitter yesterday that she and Spears have something cooking together.

A fan tweeted at the rapper, asking whether she would ever work with Spears. Azalea responded, short and sweet:

Eminem’s on a lyrical rampage, and not in a cool way.

After making headlines two weeks ago by threatening to “Punch Lana Del Rey in the face like Ray Rice” in a freestyle, he’s shifting his aim towards Iggy Azalea.

On his upcoming compilation, “Shady XV,” he raps, “If I let you run alongside the Humvee. Unless you’re Nicki [Minaj], grab you by the wrist, let’s ski, so what’s it gon’ be? Put that s**t away Iggy. You don’t wanna blow that rape whistle on me. Scream! I love it.”

Azalea responded quickly to the misogynistic name-drop with a series of tweets, explaining that Eminem’s reference was especially “awkward” because her younger brother is a fan of his music.

Here comes “Trouble.” After teaming up on the Pharrell-produced “He Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere” for Jennifer Hudson’s album JHUD, Iggy Azalea reconnects with the Oscar winner for her album Reclassified. Over a bouncy piano instrumental, the blonde bombshell raps about a bad boy (“A little trouble only makes for a good time”), while JHUD supplies the soulful hook.

In one week, Iggy will release Reclassified featuring five new tracks in addition to seven songs from The New Classic.

Iggy Azalea’s second release of 2014, Reclassified, is rapidly approaching, with a Nov. 24 release date, just in time for the insane holiday shopping season. It is the reimagining of her earlier in 2014 record, The New Classic, and features five new cuts added to the mix.
And while we’ve already heard the first single, “Beg For It,” in both the recorded and live formats, another song from the album is now available-sort of.

“Heavy Crown,” features Ellie Goulding on the hook, and a teaser of the song released Friday (Nov. 14) offers up the Goulding portion of the song as a first taste, with Azalea’s verse coming in like the salt to Goulding’s pepper.

Reclassified will also offer up a new collaboration with Jennifer Hudson among the new tracks, shuffled in with the massive successes of “Black Widow” and “Fancy.”

In the end, and if “Heavy Crown” is any indication, Reclassified seems to make a case for a stronger Azalea release on all fronts.

With the release of ‘Reclassified’ on Nov. 24, Iggy Azalea has shared a new track off the the revamped album.
On ‘We in This Bitch,’ Iggy Azalea demands respect and calls out the haters with lyrics like “Ridin’ d— won’t get me nowhere / I ain’t that type of chick.”
However, she not only throws verbal daggers at the mic, but also requests that the public put her into the same group as her hip-hop peers.
“Unpolished product of my environment / Trying to get the same type of love and respect / As the people I be rhyming with,” she delivers.
‘Reclassified’ features four new tracks that include collaborations with MØ, Jennifer Hudson and Ellie Goulding.
