Azalea returned to the social media platform today to clarify that she was not suggesting her sophomore album Digital Distortion or its next single were being pushed back.

“I didn’t intend on making anyone think my album or single was being delayed yesterday. I was just sharing what was going on with a viral vid,” posted Iggy.

Azalea told a Twitter follower she believes her label refused to finance the “Azillion” video because the company was upset she leaked the song to the internet for free. Another Twitter user offered advice to the Australia native, writing “Start your own label. Problem solved.”

Iggy responded by praising to American label Def Jam. In addition, she explained the United Kingdom based Virgin EMI has control over her budget.
