Shakira, Iggy Azalea Reportedly Working on Song Together for New Album 2015
Iggy Azalea, despite all of her controversies, is clearly one of the most sought-after featured rappers in the game these days. After features with Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lopez hit it big, it seems as though the "Beg For It" rapper now has a single in the works with none other than Shakira.
According to Spanish-language newspaper El Mundo (via Billboard), Shakira is working on the follow-up to her 2014 self-title album already and is calling up quite the international roster to help her on her 11th studio album. Not only is the "Dare (La La La)" songstress teaming up with Azalea, but she's also reportedly working with Mexican rockers Mana, Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz and rapper Dizzee Rascal.
Further word and details on Shakira's new album are scarce and it's not even confirmed if all of these collaborations will make the final cut of the record.
Neither Azalea nor Shakira are strangers to collaborating with other artists, despite not having worked together (yet). Azalea has not only had major successes with Grande and Lopez, but she also tapped Charli XCX, Rita Ora and T.I. for some major hits. Azalea is also working with Britney Spears on a mysterious new single for 2015.
Shakira, of course, is also a frequent collaborator. Shakira alone featured guest spots from Rihanna ("Can't Remember to Forget You"), MAGIC! ("Cut Me Deep") and her fellow The Voice season six coach Blake Shelton ("Medicine").
