It appears like issues are good between Iggy Azalea and former rival Azealia Banks, a minimum of in the meanwhile.
The “Tokyo Snow Trip” rapper stopped by ET’s studios on Tuesday, the place she dished on her new EP, Survive the Summer, and addressed her tumultuous relationship with the outspoken and sometimes divisive Banks.
During her candid, in-depth interview with ET’s Sophie Schillaci, Azalea was requested if she’d seen that Banks had shared a complimentary tweet in regards to the Australian rapper following the discharge of the music video for “Kream,” her latest single.
“I genuinely didn’t see that, but she’s always tweeting, I think, about everything,” Azalea mentioned, laughing. “She tweets a lot. She has a lot of opinions.”
Which is a little bit of an understatement, to say the least. Banks shouldn’t be identified for holding something again on her twitter account, and has continuously feuded with fellow artists, celebrities and even the solid of RuPaul’s Drag Race final month, and her verified account was deleted and banned from the social media platform simply days in the past.
As for her relationship with Azalea — with whom she had a really public feud in 2014, earlier than seemingly reconciling late final yr — even Azalea does not appear positive of the place they stand.
“Well, I’ll take it for today,” Azalea mentioned, referring to Bank’s reported praise. “She changes her mind so much, but today, I will take the compliment.”
“I don’t know if it will still stand next week, but I’ll take it for today,” she added.
While Azalea has been onerous at work on her newest music, Banks simply launched a brand new monitor herself. The 27-year-old artist dropped her new single, “Treasure Island,” off her upcoming album, Fantasea II: The Second Wave.
However, Azalea says she merely hasn’t had the time to take a look at Banks’ new music.
“Not to be shady or anything,” Azalea, 28, shortly clarified, explaining that the method of releasing her first new songs in a while has been her solely focus. “I have not even listened to Scorpion, but! The Drake album! I would like to try this too.”
“The last 12 days of my life have been [a] good [kind of] crazy, but I haven’t been sleeping,” she continued. “So now I need to just sit down and hear everybody else’s projects.”
As for the largely optimistic response she’s obtained for her most up-to-date work, Azalea mentioned, “It’s been really surreal, the last three days, because I didn’t think that I would have this reception.”
While Azalea places the ultimate touches on finalizing a deliberate tour, she’s additionally preparing for the discharge of her upcoming six-song EP, which options the 2 songs followers have already heard — “Kream” and “Tokyo Snow Trip” — and the Aussie artist says the 2 singles are a mixture of her previous and up to date work.
“They are definitely a departure from my album. But, they’re sort of a resurgence, almost, to, or a nod to, my earlier mixtape stuff that I did before I got signed,” she defined. “So it’s both. It feels new, but it feels nostalgic at the same time for me.”
