On July 19, Iggy Azalea is releasing her new album.
Since her debut record ‘The New Classic’ back in 2014, the 29-year-old rapper is yet to publish an album. However, she revealed her upcoming second album ‘In My Defense’ will be published next month on Monday night (24.06.19).
Iggy also disclosed the album’s artwork featuring the blood-soaked star on her car’s side while wearing a gleaming silver dress, while the car’s side is also splattered with blood and the scene is illuminated with a red light.
Posting the image of the artwork on Instagram, Iggy wrote: “In My Defense: July 19th Pre Order: June 28th (sic)”
Iggy spoke on Twitter about the inspiration of the artwork, saying it was a “statement” about females in the public eye finding it difficult to “defend themselves.”

In a series of tweets explaining the artwork, Iggy wrote: “It’s a statement about women not having the ability to defend themselves under public gaze, not rebirth.
“I guess I don’t feel women are really given a fair chance to be “heard out” so how could anyone survive that amount of judgement.
“I wore a “going out” dress and clutch because I wanted it to feel like I had been out somewhere and was clearly unprepared for a fight (sic)”
Meanwhile, the star rapper took to social media this week to express her excitement upon the completion of the artwork, teasing fans by stating she was “satisfied” with her album’s packaging.
She wrote: “I just saw my album packaging all finished in all physical formats and I feel tingly.
“Ahhhhh… satisfaction. Nothing better than an idea coming to life perfectly how you dreamt it up. (sic)”
