Tuesday marks the release of Change Your Life, the second EP from Iggy Azalea, an Aussie-bred rapper who has riled up controversy within the hip-hop ranks since her 2011 mixtape, Ignorant Art. In just two years, Azalea, 23, has been dragged into a very public race war, had a fisticuffs with Azealia Banks, dropped a label, changed her sound, and somehow managed to come out on top…or damn close to it. Her recent single “Work” with T.I. has seen over 20 million views on YouTube, and her latest track “Change Your Life” is climbing the Billboard charts, thanks to continued radio play and its infectious chorus.
