MONROE, La. — The famous Australian rapper, Amethyst Amelia Kelly, better known by her stage name, Iggy Azalea, will perform at the University of Louisiana Monroe's Fant-Ewing Coliseum on Thursday, October 13 at 8 p.m.
Iggy’s performance was secured by ULM’s Campus Activities Board, which organized the concert as a part of ULM's Homecoming week.
In 2006, as a 16 year-old, Iggy left Australia and flew to the United States to pursue her dream.
Her professional career started in 2011 with the release of her first full-length mix-tape project titled “Ignorant Art.” In 2014, she released her debut album, “The New Classic,” which debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 chart, with first-week sales topping 52,000 across the United States.
Iggy has collaborated with many well-known artists throughout her career. The most notable ones include Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.
She was the first woman and the first non-American rapper to be featured in XXL Magazine’s “Top 10 Freshman List” in 2012.
Iggy’s most notable songs include “Fancy,” “Black Widow,” “Work” and “Team.”
