Amethyst Amelia Kelly (born 7 June 1990), better known by her stage name Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, and songwriter. She was born in Sydney and raised in Mullumbimby, New South Wales. She started rapping at age 16 when she moved to the United States. In September 2011 she released her first mixtape Ignorant Art. It made two promotional songs, "My World" and "Pu$$y".

Azalea's first album, The New Classic, was going to be released in September 2013. It was later released in 2014. The single "Fancy" from the album, which features British singer-songwriter Charli XCX, went on to reach number one in the United States and Canada, while becoming the fourth-best performing song of 2014 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The next single, "Black Widow", features British singer Rita Ora and reached the top three of the Billboard Hot 100. The album was rereleased with the title Reclassified in late 2014 and featured the singles "Beg for It" featuring Danish recording artist and "Trouble" featuring American R&B singer Jennifer Hudson.
