About Iggy Azalea
Iggy Azalea net worth is currently estimated at $10 million, so yes, she has a pretty long way to go to get into the ranks of world’s wealthiest celebrities. But you have to keep in mind that this singer has released her first studio album just a little more than a year ago. Having in mind that she was born in an artistic (Iggy’s father was a painter and comic artist) yet financially rather troubled family (we all know that painter’s profession doesn’t usually pay very well and neither does hotel cleaning – the job done by Azalea’s mother), we must admit that the singer has come a pretty long way already. But let’s look at her career straight from the beginning.
Iggy Azalea net worth started to grow in the early 2010s, as she released her debut mixtape, titled Ignorant Art. Although the songwriter, rapper and an occasional model released it as a free digital download, it is widely accepted that it greatly contributed to the growth of her fortune. And how exactly? The answer is as simple as it gets: it helped her to attract wider attention and opened the doors to record studious.
The following year, in 2014, the rapper has finished her first studio album: The New Classic. The album was successful both commercially and among the critics. It topped US R’n’B and HH chart lists and charted in variety of other counties all over the world, including Iggy’s native Australia, Canada, Ireland, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Sweden. Speaking about sales, it distributed over 500 thousand copies in the United States alone, earning gold certificate from the Recording Industries Association of America, as well as ARIA and MC. Just a few months after her debut, Azalea released a second album, Reclassified, which was actually a reissue of The New Classic. Although this later record featured only five new songs, including, “We in This Bitch”, “Heavy Crown”, “Trouble”, and “Iggy SZN”, those were pretty popular and increased the sales of the whole album. As to my knowledge, Reclassified debuted at number twenty-seven on the Billboard 200 chart, with 33,638 album-equivalent units, while at the same time its parent album, The New Classic, also climbed back up to number seventy.
Now let‘s speak about the later and more scandalous events related to Iggy Azalea net worth. Although some people placed considerable expectations on Iggy‘s newest single, recorded together with former pop-princess Britney spears, so far it has not exactly turned into a hit. While the song, titled „Pretty Girls“, was quite popular in the United Kingdom and France, it was barely noticed in other European countries and was not received with much enthusiasm in the United States. Somewhat daringly, Iggy has placed the blame for the failure on Britney, saying that the later didn’t do much in the way of promotions prior to the song’s May 4 release.
