Iggy Azalea has been out of the spotlight for a little while but she’s still making moves in the music industry. The “Fancy” rapper posted on Instagram what seems to be a new deal she worked out with the music tech company Monster. The Beats Headphone competitor also has Aerosmith Guitarist, Joe Perry, on their roster to promote their audio products and also landed a 30 second commercial spot during the 2018 Super Bowl at a reported $5.5 million cost.
On Monday, Iggy posted a photo from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas of herself with Noel Lee, the CEO of the Tech Company, and Aerosmith guitarist, Joe Perry. The threesome are attended the four day event known as CES 2018 representing one of the many tech companies like Samsung, Amazon and Texas Instruments who premiere and market their newest products on the global stage.
“I am beyond excited to be working with these two absolutely legendary people,” said Azalea in the Instagram caption. “I am so grateful for the opportunity, you can’t even imagine. @monsterproducts I can’t wait for our Super Bowl Commercial.”
Iggy and Joe Perry are joining a growing roster of public figures associated with the music tech company. Oakland Raiders Running back Marshawn Lynch, Memphis Rapper Yo Gotti, Pittsburgh Steelers Rookie Wide Receiver Juju Smith-Schuster and Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson are all a part of the Monster family.
As Iggy struggles with releasing her follow up to her Grammy nominated album, “The New Classic,” it is good to see that she is still finding new opportunities to rake in some cash. The Australian born rapper has been victim to several delays and pushed back release dates of her sophomore album originally titled “Digital Distortion” but was changed to “Surviving the Summer” in November. Iggy recently announced that Quavo will have a feature on her album’s single titled, “Survivor” which is expected to be released in the near future.
