It seems like Iggy Azalea is finally getting through to her label, as she announced on social media Wednesday that she’ll be releasing new music soon. The Grammy-nominated rapper posted the artwork to her next single, “Savior,” which has a feature from Migos’ Quavo. Based on the caption, the track is scheduled to be released February 2.

It’s been a long journey for the 27-year-old Australian rapper. Following the release of her debut album, The New Classic, which produced the multi-platinum hit song “Fancy” featuring Charlie XCX, she has struggled to get any music out. One would think with a Platinum-selling album, a multi-platinum single and a Grammy nod, the follow up album would not be difficult to get out.

Yet, Azalea has complained about her album release date being continuously pushed back. The album titled Digital Distortion was supposed to be released June 30, but was pushed back and eventually shelved with no planned release at this time.

Back in March, the “Black Widow” rapper released a single for the sophomore LP titled, “Mo Bounce,” which didn’t take off like the hit from her first album did. This could be the cause for the delayed release, but Azalea grew frustrated with Def Jam, going on a Snapchat rant discussing her anger with getting the second album out.

Azalea has taken on other ventures in the mean time. She recently announced a partnership with the tech company Monster, which will air a commercial with the artist during the Super Bowl. Iggy recently spent a weekend at the CES Tech convention with her new partners in Las Vegas.

Now, with a new single approaching with a high-powered feature like Quavo, this could be Iggy’s opportunity to take off, and finally be able to release her second album in 2018.
