Iggy Azalea Signs New Partnership Deal With EMPIRE: Iggy Azalea’s been making some major plays lately in order to get more music out for her fans. In early November, she announced that she was finally out of her label deal. Today, she announces her new partnership deal with EMPIRE.
Iggy is gearing up to kick 2019 off on the right note. The rapper announced that she’s now signed a multi-year partnership deal with EMPIRE Records where she’ll be keeping her movement entirely independent.
“I’m so excited to begin a new entrepreneurial chapter in my career with EMPIRE as my partner,” she said in a press release. “The ability to have control of my own artistic future is a long-awaited and monumental change in my life. I genuinely feel I am in the best position to achieve my creative ambitions.”
So today’s the day!
I’m officially announcing my new label will be distributed via EMPIRE.
So satisfying to be able to keep everything about this new chapter 100% indie.
Bring on 2019!!! ??

EMPIRE will be overseeing “the release and promotion” of new music from Azalea which includes her follow-up to 2014’s The New Classic.
“The ability to have control of my own artistic future is a long-awaited and monumental change in my life. I genuinely feel I am in the best position to achieve my creative ambitions,” EMPIRE CEO Ghazi Shami said.
Iggy announced her deal last week but didn’t share too much information on the deal. However, she did say that she’s 100% independent and that the deal was worth $2.7M.
