On February 2nd, Iggy will release a brand new single…
The song is called Saviour, and features Quavo. It’s the first single off the second album, which is being released by a new label.
Whilst we’re excited at Feisty, as are many other people, it seems there’s one person who has produced it that we wanted to see the end of: Dr Luke.
If you’ve been following Kesha’s news, you would have no doubt heard that Kesha fought to get out of a contract that involved her working with Dr Luke, as she alleged he physically and mentally assaulted her. Kesha took the producer to court over allegations he had raped her.
When the #FreeKesha campaign had traction online, Iggy reached out to Kesha to show her support, even going horse riding together.
Fast forward to 2018, and Kesha has released a song that has become the anthem for the #MeToo movement, as well as a new studio album that was not produced by Dr Luke. Iggy has had a string of unsuccessful singles – commercially, but not to us – and is now releasing a new single.
But according to Lyric website, Genius, the song was produced by Dr Luke.
The credits for producers, which have now been removed, cited Dr Luke as a producer. Fans were quick to question this, and ask why she would work with someone who is now labelled an abuser.
It could just be a mistake on Genius’ part, and with the credit for Luke disappearing ever so quickly, it makes me think that the story doesn’t hold much weight.
Meanwhile, at Feisty, we know this isn’t true. Iggy Azalea fans have been quick to shut down the story, by tweeting that Genius was accessed and edited by a source that wanted to cause trouble.
