That there Iggy Azalea has only gone and signed a worldwide publishing deal with Sony/ATV. It’s actually part of a partnership between the music publishing powerhouse and TI’s company ‘Grand Hustle’, and includes Azalea’s songwriting credits on her debut album ‘The New Classic’, and future output.

Confirming this very fact, Sony/ATV big cheese Marty Bandier told reporters: “We are incredibly excited to be working with such a fresh and electrifying new talent as Iggy Azalea. She is an incredibly smart and dynamic songwriter and artist and has made an amazing start to what looks set to be a long and successful career ahead”.

Speaking for Azalea, her manager, Sarah Stennett from Turn First Artists, added: “It was clear from Iggy’s first meeting with Sony/ATV that they were as excited about the next phase of her career as all of us at Turn First and that their excitement was genuine”.

She went on: “The completion of this partnership agreement with Sony/ATV, Grand Hustle and Iggy continues the original mission that we at Turn First had agreed to with Iggy the day we met her: to only enter into relationships with people who truly support the vision and believe in her staying power, ability to write and deliver exciting records, and her potential to grow as an artist and cultural icon”.

So that’s all lovely.
