Just a day after dropping her new single “Mo Bounce” on Beats 1, Iggy Azalea is back at, unveiling the song’s video early this morning. Talking to Zane Lowe yesterday, Iggy said that this track was “probably the most fun record on my album,” while adding, “I’ve thought a really long time about what I’ve wanted to put out… I was going to say something super serious and then, I don’t know, I’ve been in such a good mood lately.” She also pointed out that “It’s summer and I just wanted to twerk in a video! Like I’m single. I wanna have a good time.”
Well if she wanted to have a good time and twerk in a video: mission accomplished. The visual for “Mo Bounce” finds Iggy traveling somewhere around Asia, rapping about brushing off her haters and comparing herself to Edward Snowden, while also shaking her prodigious behind for the cameras.
“Mo Bounce” is the first official single from Azalea’s upcoming album Digital Distortion. As she told Lowe during their chat, “I think I was definitely a little more influenced by EDM music and those kinds of sounds at the beginning and, on my last record, I really took a step away from that and I wanted to bring that back.” She noted that, “I executive produced this second album entirely and I just feel like it’s a much better reflection of me. In a way closer to the mixtape stuff that I had total control over as well.”
