Iggy Azalea's new single features mystery female vocalist

Iggy Azalea's new single features mystery female vocalist

Iggy Azalea is to release a new single in January featuring a female pop vocalist.

The 'Fancy' rapper has been sat on her second album - the follow-up to 2014's 'The New Classic' - for months now, but has finally unveiled her plans to drop a new song and she has teased that a mystery singer features on the track.

According to The Idolator, she said: "My album has been finished for months now but of course I have been doing ['X Factor'], which is a big task.

"I'm going to put my single out, which has a feature on it, a girl singing with me, so that will be in January. I'm really excited."

The 26-year-old beauty has previously teamed up with Charli XCX, Ellie Goulding, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez to name a few.

Meanwhile, the buxom blonde previously admitted she was forced to put her record on hold because her personal life "fell apart".

Iggy "needed a lot of time" to deal with her split from her ex-fiancé Nick Young, after she allegedly caught him having sex with another woman, which led her to delay the release of her LP 'Digital Distortion' for a year.

Speaking about the track, which was set to be unveiled this year but had been pushed back to January 2017, she previously said: "It's no secret, I kind of had my personal life fall apart ... I needed a lot of time.

"I mean, you wake up one morning and your fiancé is having a baby with someone else, you're going to need some time, right?"

She also didn't want the focus of interviews during the time of promoting her new tracks to be about her relationship.

She explained: "I don't want to go and promote my album and get asked about my relationship that has just crumbled."

However, Iggy - whose real name is Amethyst Amelia Kelly - has revealed her break-up has led her to change the direction of the album to suit her current relationship status.

Speaking about the songs on her album, she said: "I just kind of felt like, on top of me needing the personal time, then feeling, 'Okay, I'm single now. I want to have sexy songs. I want to say stuff about being single'.

"I obviously didn't write that on my [original] album because when I wrote it I was about to get married."
