Early Life and Education
Amethyst Amelia Kelly who is known professionally as Iggy Azalea, was raised in Mullumbimby, New South Wales, after being born in Sydney.
Tanya Kelly, her mother, worked as a housekeeper in resorts and hotels, while her father, Brendan Kelly, was an Irish-Australian painter and comic book creator.
Azalea resided in a home surrounded by 5 hectares (12 acres) of land that her father hand-built from mud bricks. She has two brothers and sisters, Mathias and Emerald Kelly.
The New Classic (2014), Azalea’s debut studio album, reached the top five on a number of international charts, although industry critics weren’t unanimous in their praise.
As a result of the album’s eventual success on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums list, Azalea became the first female rapper from a country other than the United States to do so.
Azalea’s debut single “Work” and the number-one single “Fancy” (featuring Charli XCX), both of which debuted on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, came before The New Classic.
Ariana Grande’s 2014 single “Problem,” which reached at number two behind “Fancy,” included Azalea.
Azalea’s maiden entries on the Hot 100 with these singles made them the second musical act (after The Beatles) to rank at numbers one and two concurrently.
With the aforementioned songs and the album’s fifth single, “Black Widow” (featuring Rita Ora), which debuted later that year, she also managed to score three top ten hits simultaneously on the Hot 100.
After releasing her debut album, Azalea put out a ton of singles to get people excited for her upcoming second album, Digital Distortion.
However, the project was abandoned as a result of numerous disputes with her label and internal issues. As a result, Azalea changed record labels and issued the EP Survive the Summer (2018) through Island Records.
Further arguments prompted Azalea to separate from Empire and form her own label, Bad Dreams, under a distribution agreement.
In My Defense, her second studio album, was released in 2019. Wicked Lips, another EP, was also released in 2019, and The End of an Era, her third studio album, was released in 2021.
Among Azalea’s honors are four Grammy Award nominations, two American Music Awards, three Billboard Music Awards, an MTV Video Music Award, a People’s Choice Award, and three Billboard Music Awards.
15 music videos by Azalea have received more than 100 million views on Vevo, and her official YouTube channel has received 3.4 billion views overall.
