Starring in the funeral-themed visuals are 'RuPaul's Drag Race' contestants Shea Coulee, Mayhem Miller and Vanjie.

AceShowbiz - After all the troubles that she has been going through, Iggy Azalea has finally started the rollout for her sophomore album, now titled "In My Defense". The Australian female emcee released its first track "Sally Walker" on Thursday, March 14, before unveiling its music video hours later. The visuals stars several of "RuPaul's Drag Race" contestants.

It opens with Shea Coulee running over the titular Sally Walker with her car. Shea immediately gets out of her car and when she realizes that Sally is already dead, she says, "Didn't her momma teach her not to play in the street?" The scene then changes to Sally's memorial service, where Mayhem Miller and Vanjie are seen dancing as Iggy begins rapping her verse.

After paying their respect to Sally for one last time, the funeral attendees then head outside for the burial procession. While most of them are walking, Iggy sits on top of a moving car that takes her to the cemetery. When it's her time to deliver her eulogy, friends and family of Sally are seen crying, including beauty guru James Charles.

However, the gloomy atmosphere soon changes towards the end of the music video. All of them are seen jumping up and down and enjoying the music, as if they forget that their loved one has just died.

While the music video is about funeral, "Sally Walker" itself features Iggy calling out her haters who are not brave enough to face her and boasts about her status. "All of you b****s is mad at me/ Prolly mad cause you ain't in my tax bracket," she raps. "You b****s is broker than glass crackin'/ You ain't gon' do s**t, you just act ratchet."

"Sally Walker" will be included on her sophomore album "In My Defense", the followup to her 2013 effort "The New Classic". The release of the second album has been long overdue, with Iggy encountering push backs from Def Jam. She later teamed up with Island Records, but parted ways last year. Late last year, she announced a new partnership with Empire.

"In My Defense" is set to be released later this year.
