The Australian rapper announced on Twitter yesterday that the track would debut today (March 3) and added that it will be included on her upcoming album Digital Distortion, the follow-up to her 2014 debut The New Classic.
“Can’t Lose,” which is supported by rapping and auto-tuned vocals by Lil Uzi Vert, rides a slow, lazy syncopated beat layered with swirling keyboards, skittering samples and a dreamy, effect-laden midsection.
It’s a welcome departure from the more traditional style fans have grown used to. ” I hope my fans understand my life has been filled with so many personal changes,” she tweeted. “I felt it was important I made some creative changes too – I needed my album to reflect where my head’s at in 2017.”
In a later tweet, Azalea added that she will be releasing additional new material throughout the month. “I know its been a long wait for my album – SORRY!,” she wrote.
The long wait has been due in part to her public breakup with ex-fiancé, L.A. Laker Nick Young, who, it was revealed, cheated on her. The couple broke up June 16 and soon after the news broke that Young’s ex-girlfriend Keonna Green was pregnant with their second child.
