  1. This is an instantly engaging showcase of the 23-year-old Aussie’s talents--poppy without diluting her fierce-flowing charisma.

    Twerk-inducing and loud; 'Goddess' is the game-changer for Iggy Azalea and the glistening cherry on top of the immaculately produced, lyrically creative gem that is The New Classic.

    There’s no rap entitlement on display, and even brand-dropping doesn’t feel disingenuous or superficial, somehow--and, furthermore, she’s a grounded everyman rap icon. It’s endearing to no end.

    The production is an expertly judged combination of radio-friendly pop and club-influenced, sparse trap beats. Iggy’s the real deal.

    Iggy's got a handful of top shelf singles, but too much of The New Classic is old news. [2 May 2014, p.63]

    This isn't creative. A Pop álbum from a model who says that can write songs. It has no sense of power and glory. It's not classic anyway.This isn't creative.
