Iggy Iggz is back at it… again!
A collaboration with Migos‘ man of the moment Quavo, the island-tinged number is lifted from Iggy‘s much delayed sophomore album Surviving the Summer. Originally titled Digital Distortion, the forthcoming LP has been re-worked after the Aussie rapstress departed Def Jam for Island Records.
The immediately infectious throb kicks off with a nod to P. Diddy, Ma$e, The Notorious B.I.G., and Lisa Stansfield. “Been around the world and I, I, I, I,” she sing-raps on the track. “I can’t find my baby.” Soon after that, Quavo comes through for an Auto-Tuned assist on the Akon-like hook: “I’ve been lookin’ for a savior,” he sings across the pulsating Verse Simmonds and Cirkut production. “I’ve been lookin’ for a savior / I’ve been looking for a real one to hold on to (hey)/ I’ve been looking for a savior, savior, yeah, to save me.”
The song is an actual bop, but that isn’t much of a surprise. Both “Mo Bounce” and “Switch” were underappreciated if I’m being honest. This is fresh, on trend, and radio ready. All ingredients for a hit. To aid her comeback, Iggy has teamed with Monster Electronics who’ll be featuring the track in their Super Bowl commercial for their Airlink Elements Bluetooth headphones. Here’s hoping that this is given the push it deserves.
“It is not a record about you needing a man or a woman to come and save you in a relationship,” Iggy said about the song in a video posted to her Twitter. “It’s about you being your own savior and finding your own strength within yourself to figure it the f–k out. It’s a really hard record for me to have written and I think it’s going to be one I really struggle to perform, too, just ’cause I’ll probably wanna cry every single time.”
