A few weeks ago Iggy Azealea hinted that she was working on something with Britney Spears, and it looks like that something is a collaborative track that could be released very shortly. Like, today.

A site called BreatheHeavy is reporting that the song is titled “BLI$$,” is written by J.Pebworth, A. Kelly, B. Spears and J.Shave, and is slated for a 12/9 drop.

If true, this is either going to be Christmas come early or a reminder of everything that’s wrong with music in 2014. If it’s false, this cover art has to used for at least something — a collaborative line of power scrunchies?

On Friday, Iggy Azalea scored four nominations at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards including Best New Artist and Record of the Year for “Fancy.” The Aussie rap sensation also picked up nods for Best Rap Album for The New Classic and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

During his appearance at Power 106′s Cali Christmas on Friday, her Hustle Gang mentor T.I. was beaming with pride as he reacted to the news.

“It’s awesome,” he told Rap-Up TV. “We’re just incredibly proud of her and happy that she’s enjoying her moment. She’s worked hard.”

According to Tip, Iggy is heading back into the studio soon to work on her sophomore album.

“She’s really just focused on her next project though,” he added. “She’s definitely working diligently trying to make sure that she maintains this level of intensity.”

When asked if he will be part of the project, Tip laughed. “We’ll see.”

Two Australians, one who celebrated her assets in the public eye and one who hid hers behind a paper bag, are among the ten videos we watched on YouTube this year.
Iggy Azalea’s clip for Fancy topped the list of filmclips Australians watched most through 2014 while fellow Australian Sia, whose face is never seen in the clip, came in at number six for the video for her huge hit, Chandelier.
It probably is no surprise that not only have Azalea and Sia both been among the year’s best sellers and now most watched but they have earned multiple Grammy Award nominations ahead of next year’s awards presentation.

As a sign that singing about and eulogising backsides was the music trend of the year – YouTube’s not wholly scientific estimation is that the top 10 videos were played “billions of times” through the year – Azalea’s sometime partner in rhyme, Nicki Minaj, was the second most watched artist on YouTube for her literally arse-shaking clip Anaconda.
Meanwhile, Azalea reappears on the list at No.7 for her collaboration with Ariana Grande, Problem. This amplifies another eye-catching element of this list: all but one video, that for the Chainsmokers’ club banger, #Selfie, is for a song by a female artist.
Rounding out the list are Katy Perry (twice – Dark Horse and This Is How We Do), Shakira (Can’t Remember to Forget You), Meghan Trainor (All about That Bass) and the late arriving but already year-defining Shake It Off from Taylor Swift.

1. Iggy Azalea – Fancy (Explicit) ft. Charli XCX
2. Nicki Minaj – Anaconda
3. Katy Perry – Dark Horse (Official) ft. Juicy J
4. Meghan Trainor – All About That Bass
5. Taylor Swift – Shake It Off
6. Sia – Chandelier (Official Video)
7. Ariana Grande – Problem ft. Iggy Azalea
8. #SELFIE (Official Music Video) – The Chainsmokers
9. Katy Perry – This Is How We Do (Official)
10. Shakira – Can’t Remember to Forget You ft. Rihanna.

Iggy Azalea and Nick Jonas have both had a full and massively successful 2014. Iggy became a household name and one of the music industry’s hottest tickets, while Nick launched his solo career since his days in the Jonas Brothers and went platinum with his single “Jealous.”

Now as 2014 is coming to a close, the two are looking forward to a busy 2015, including hitting the road together on Iggy’s scheduled tour.

The announcement was made on twitter when Iggy posted, “”what I’m trying to say is: @nickjonas is my special guest on tour next year.”

Nick replied with, “@IGGYAZALEA let’s do this.”

This could be one of the more random tour match ups, but we won’t be surprised when every dates sells out because of both names on the bill.
