How Iggy Azalea’s ‘Digital Distortion’ Prank Fooled the Internet

By Nilankur Dutta | 2 years ago

Iggy Azalea just can’t stop tweeting! After revealing the name of her sophomore album on Twitter on Wednesday, the “Fancy” singer has also promised a new track called “Zillion.” But she has been teasing at the name of her album for ages now. Want to know how? Read on for more details.

Azalea certainly lives an eventful life. After her first album “The New Classic” propelled her to a life of fame and controversy, the 25-year-old singer hasn’t stopped shaking things up. Take for example the fact that after the Beatles, Azalea is the only artist to have her hits simultaneously in the first and the second spots on the billboard charts (via Billboard)

Azalea promised on Twitter that her new album “Digital Distortion” is going to be out soon, featuring songs Middle Man, Zillion and CFTS (whatever that is, we have no doubt it is going to be a future hit).

Azalea also revealed that she is collaborating with D.R.U.G.S for her new album. That sounds ominous until you realize D.R.U.G.S stands for Dirty Rotten Underground Sound, and they are the guys who produced her 2011 debut mixtape “Ignorant Art.”

 “I just been doing my whole album with the guys I did my first mixtape with actually, and we’re almost finished and it’s been super cool working with my whole friends,” Azalea said via Music News)

She also expressed her desire to work with R&B artist Tinashe on her new album, with whom she made “All Hands On Deck.”

In the meanwhile, while you might not have realized it, Azalea has been trying to give away the name of her album for ages. Check out for instance her recent Instagram posts, all featuring one thing in common: “Digital Distortion.”


Getting back in shape and ready for the next chapter… 💪🏻Hope everyone's enjoying their Labor Day.
