“I’m going to see her [soon],” Azalea shared. “I’m opening for her. I am her opening act, which is cool, because I love the idea of it, because she is my girlfriend.”
Azalea is also focused on finalizing a tour and her upcoming six-song EP which drops on Aug. 3. Fans have already heard of the “Kream” and “Tokyo Snow Trip,” the Australian artist calls a mix of her old and recent work.
“They are certainly a departure from my album. But, they are a kind of a revival, almost, to, or is it a nod to my earlier mix tape stuff that I did before I signed,” she explained. “So it’s both. It feels new, it feels nostalgic at the same time for me.”
