First week sales projections are in for Iggy Azalea's debut album, "The New Classic."

Iggy Azalea's The New Classic is expected to sell between 50,000 and 55,000 units in its first week of availability, according to HITS Daily Double

The New Classic earned a 2.5 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review recently

"In a now altogether too common meeting of marketing prowess and the expectations of a society in the throes of progression, Australian-born emcee Iggy Azalea’s debut album The New Classicis just that; a modern twist on mainstream marketing’s ideal of beauty and expectations from popular music," HipHopDX says in its review. "Depending on perspective, Azalea unfortunately (or fortunately) follows in a long line of physically attractive blondes pushed to the stars by the music industry. In that being said instead of Azalea’s unique gifts as a lyricist being showcased, the album feels flat and uninspiring. This isn’t as much an enjoyable album as it is a brand marketing impact report highlighting percentages of target demographics reached."

In October 2013, Azalea spoke about the album with HipHopDX"There are moments on my album where you’ll go, 'Whoa that was fucking left of field,'" Iggy said at the time. "It’s probably going to be 14 or 15 tracks, and I can tell you that three or four tracks are really far left compared to the rest of the body of work. I wish they could’ve all been that far left, but I have to make everybody happy. It’s more sonic experimentation than anything. Visually, I try to get away with what I can, but there’s always the issue of censorship."

    Why is this bird constantly featured on these pages? Just because she has an OK-ish boat, she recieves more coverage than more talented, worthy female emcees like Invincible and Lady of Rage. Anyone with an iota of knowledge or passion for hip-hop knows her music's pants. If DX continues to promote and give unjustified coverage to this bollocks, hip-hop will continue to wilt and perish.
    • DX STAFF
      Is lady of rage doing anything these days or should we just write news stories about her old songs.
    • Doubl Negative
      Yeah, if you check out Premo's HeadQCourterz show, you'd be more au fait with her new material she's recorded with him and it shits all over this blonde bimbo you in explicitly hail so highly.

      @ DX Staff..........Is Lord Jamar doing anything these days or do you just write news stories about his old songs? And to answer your question. Yes, Rage just dropped a record with DJ PRemier....and you call yourselves a "hip hop" website....step your game up!

      I would be way more impressed if she did asap Rockys numbers her first week and went gold 5 months later instead of doing futures numbers her first week but hey she doesn't have those big big promotions so it will be very tough for her to even go certified gold let alone platinum shit LOL I don't know why I thought she would be doing similar numbers to nicki minaj or beyonce on her opening week lol never the less 55k is still cool for a newcomer like Iggy once she gets more known she may just do 255k on her next album or so we will see only time will tell whether the masses will accept her or not in this rap game

    Iggy about to sell more first week than French Montana and twice as much as DJ Khaled.
    • john
      iggy will outsell future, the hottest artist in the game right now only because of her being white and having a major white following. We all know that's true. Iggy is trash and a gimmick and Ti should be smacked for signing her stupid ass just to get a check, theres got to be a balance respect for the culture as well as get paid.
  • Chrisalejo
    That's a shame, if Iggy outsells future and you supposed to be the "hottest." That means your label aint doing you shit. This bitch almost out selling YG's album first week, and that's supposed to be a "classic."
    • Anonymous
      Let's not pretend that Iggy's sales are good either. She had tons of hype and is only on track to do slighty better than french montana. Pusha T and Gambino did not have anywhere near the hype yet sold more.
    • Ree Up
      YG album sold 65,000 first week... and French sold 50,000 first week. Sucks for Future, everybody talking about his album but nobody buying it
