Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks have been involved in a longtime feud, but have decided to collaborate on new music together.


Fans will be shocked to discover this new team, but Azalea tried to explain her reasoning for the collab on Twitter. “I don’t expect you guys to understand why i would collaborate with someone who has publicly said they hope i die,” she began. “This has been something extremely negative for so long, if there is a way to make it positive and also be creative together, im here for it.”

The singer previously spoke out about the rivalry on Instagram, writing to Banks that she does not hate her. “I just want to say FYI; re A. banks. Call me crazy, but girl; I don’t hate you. I don’t know you to hate you,” she said outright. “I believe you may want to meet me in person so you can steal a lock of my hair and cast a spell hoping I die (lol) I don’t agree with many of your opinions but honestly, at times I empathize with you as a creative Gemini woman.” She continued: “I wish you had spoken to me before deciding I was out to get you when we first came on the scene, but that’s also typical Gemini reaction s–t (I get it). As a 27-year-old adult woman just know: I wish you well from one human to another and joke collaboration or not as adults we should move past trivial beef with strangers.”

Banks tweeted out the words to her followers.

This development came under a month ago, and now the pair have seemingly made up. Banks has kept fans up to date via her Instagram page, posting articles and explanations about the upcoming collaboration. She cleared up that Azalea may have announced the news prematurely, but that she is still very excited for the work to come. “I am incredibly flattered and so excited about a future collaboration with Iggy,” she said July 5. “Yes, she and I had our differences in the past, but we were so young and that was so long ago. She and I are both on a whole other level right now, and I have nothing but respect for her as a woman, an artist, and a business woman. As such, I’m thrilled for the opportunity to work with her, or any other artist out there because I truly believe that united, we are stronger.” She added a #GRRLPOWER hashtag to a previous post.
