Iggy Azalea's new album is set to be released after nearly two years since she unveiled her debut. Now, Nick Young's fiancée has revealed she hopes to create a trend rather than just follow what is out there.

The Australian rapper admitted that for 'The New Classic,' she chose songs that would appeal to society. However, she took a totally different approach with 'Digital Distortion.'

"With Digital Distortion, rather than following the trend, I was trying to create my own trend," Iggy Azalea told Hashtag Legend. "The intention is, 'hey we live in this digital era, it's really easy for people to distort your character and let the record show, this is my character that can't really be twisted', and I'm trying to sonically give you the vibe of what I would want to represent myself as."

She revealed her new album would be energetic and fun. For Iggy Azalea's new album, she said that she turned to her "top pop influence for lyrical inspiration."

Nick Young's fiancée admitted that she likes the Spice Girls and thought "about them a little bit" when she was writing for her new album.

"One thing I liked was that they would incorporate made-up words like "zig-a-zig-ah" and leave the meaning open to the listeners," she said. "I considered that when writing lyrics, caring not as much what the words mean most of the time but leaving the words open to interpretation."

She also credited Missy Elliot as another influence. Despite making it big in music, Iggy Azalea has never met her idol, Missy.

"She's tweeted me a couple of times which is pretty cool," the rapper said. "That's something - better than nothing!"
