AceShowbiz - Ahead of the release of her upcoming album "Surviving the Summer", Iggy Azalea has released the visuals for the lead track off the album, "Savior" featuring Quavo of Migos. Despite being featured in the track, Quavo doesn't make an appearance in the visuals, which was unveiled on February 28.
Directed by Colin Tilley, the music video begins with Iggy waking up in a church which is decked out with neon fixtures. Later, she dons a black wedding gown and a neon halo as she walks down the aisle while holding a bouquet of flaming roses. Her partner is draped in a mysterious cloak and disappears when she tries to look at his/her face.
The hooded figure later returns to drown the Australian rapper in a bathtub. But there's a twist. The figure is actually Iggy herself. Towards the end of the clip, she gets baptized and eventually rises from the darkness to a place of light, realizing that she is her own savior.
"Savior" was released on February 1 and was featured in the Monster Products Super Bowl commercial. In a short clip that was shared on Twitter shortly after the release of the track, Iggy revealed that the track is about saving yourself.
"It is not a record about you needing a man or a woman to come and save you in a relationship," she said as scenes of her working on the song are being shown in the clip. "It's about you being your own savior and finding your own strength within yourself to figure the f**k out. It's a really hard record for me to have written and I think it's going to be one I really struggle to perform too, just 'cause I'll probably cry every single time."
"Surviving the Summer" is set to be released later this year. It will be a follow-up to her 2014 debut album "The New Classic".
