Saying 2016 has not been so great for Iggy Azalea might be the understatement of the year!
First in January, her buzz single “Azillion” created little to no positive buzz for her comeback album. Later during Spring, her Los Angeles Lakers fiancé, Nick “Swaggy P” Young, made news for admitting to cheating on Iggy via a leaked video filmed by teammate D’Angelo Russell.
The video became public knowledge at a terrible time for Iggy Azalea, when she had to do many promotional appearances for her newly released single, “Team."
Striding on like a trooper, Iggy continued to promote her official first single “Team” from her upcoming sophomore album, Digital Distortion. Sadly the single didn’t perform as well as her Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 predecessors, despite Azalea's promo campaign, which included high profile visits to Ellen DeGenres and Jimmy Fallon's talk shows.
The icing on a not so tasty wedding cake, Azalea just announced she and Swaggy P have officially split. The news comes nearly a year after she announced her engagement to the famous baller.
Iggy went on to write on Instagram stating, “although I love Nick and have tried and tried to rebuild my trust in him - it’s become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to.” Young simply took to Twitter to post “single."
If there is any blessing within this breakup, perhaps it will provide great ideas and content for the still release date-awaiting Digital Distortion LP, due out this year.
