Iggy Azalea, real name Amethyst Amelia Kelly, is a rapper from Australia who has reached a net worth of $10 million.
She was born and raised in a simple family in Mullumbimby, New South Wales. At a young age, she taught herself how to rap. That’s when she realized that music was her calling. She dropped out of school, worked with her mom cleaning hotel rooms, saved money, and moved to the United States at the age of 16 to pursue a career as a rapper.
Even before the release of her first album, Iggy Azalea already had the public eye on her for releasing several successful and controversial singles. She signed with T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records in 2012. Her debut album, “The New Classic”, topped several 2014 charts worldwide. Her songs also were part of the Billboard Chart Top for R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. This made her the pioneer non-American female artist/rapper to reach the top of the chart.
Her single “Fancy” reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. Ariana Grande’s single “Problem,” on which she was featured, ranked behind “Fancy” making Azalea one of the few artists to simultaneously rank in Hot 100 entries. Following that, three of her singles including “Black Widow” with Rita Ora reached the top ten on the Hot 100.
In 2016, she released her second album “Digital Distortion” and announced that she had started a production company called Azalea Street Productions. Her company later announced that they would be creating original content for NBC Universal. Azalea was also one of the judges of The X Factor Australia for its eighth season.
Apart from music, Iggy Azalea received numerous modeling project offers from influential companies which helped her reach her net worth. Steve Madden collaborated with her for a signature shoe line. She is paid handsomely to promote products to her almost 11 million followers.
These are all the milestones that helped Iggy achieve her $10 million net worth.
