Date: Monday 30th September 2013
Venue: Roundhouse, Camden, London
This was the last night of the iTunes Festival 2013 – a night with three stars that go by the names of Icona Pop, Iggy Azalea and Katy Perry.
With a background staging like a circus with merry go round horses, sky high heeled boots and a little golden, metallic corset – certainly different from her usual two piece hot-shorts and crop tops – a huge introduction was made by “the infamous DJ WizKid”, and Iggy Azalea ran on stage with dancers in toe to her first song, Beat Down.
Hair slicked back off her face as a long, golden high ponytail, with simple, feminine make-up and just a touch of fuchsia lipstick to finish it off, she looked more woman than ever before. Iggy certainly proved herself as equal competition to wow the crowd as she owned the stage.
Following her intro to the stage, Iggy continued her set with her newest single, Change Your Life.
Going through the motions of playing her songs both old and new, Iggy danced and twerked alongside her female dancers to her older songs including Pu$$y. next on her setlist was Murda Bizness, which she introduced to the Roundhouse crowd by saying,
D’ya know what it’s called when you go out at night and you look so good, you kill everybody else in the club? That’s called being in the Murda Bizness.
At only 23, Iggy has presented herself as a successful young artist in her own right, and a great role model to young girls – proud of her hourglass figure.
She played her recent hits including Bounce, and ended with the infamous song which catapulted her into the limelight, Work.
As a girl in the hip hop industry, she’s certainly had her work cut out for her, but with support from the likes of T.I and other huge names in that scene, she’s definitely one to watch, who’ll just be getting bigger and better as time goes on.
The Sydney born star is due to release her debut studio album, The New Classic before the end of this year, after its original release date of September 2nd was pushed back.
All in all, she was 10/10, and I can’t wait to see her perform again!
