To say her career has stalled would be an understatement. Despite releasing some solid singles including “Mo Bounce” and “Switch,” the Australian rapper hasn’t been able to recapture the magic of her debut album The New Classic. Things got so bleak, she scrapped plans for her sophomore album, Digital Distortion, and decided to start from scratch.
“Savior” is the first taste off her newly-named sophomore LP, Surviving The Summer. The down-tempo house track features Migos hitmaker Quavo. For those who love 90s music, you’ll appreciate the interpolation of Lisa Stansfield’s massive hit, “Been Around The World.”
“This song speaks to the notion of looking for a savior when you feel like you’re at your absolute lowest, an idea that resonates with almost everyone’s need for companionship,” Iggy explained of the track. “However, upon further thought, I believe that there is an even deeper message hidden in the song: Before someone else can save you, you need to find peace within yourself.. In searching for a savior, you will find one, but it may not be the person you were expecting. You, ultimately, are your own greatest savior.”
Sadly, the single hasn’t performed any better than her recent offerings. In fact, it hasn’t even cracked the Billboard Hot 100. With a slick visual now here, maybe it’ll give “Savior” new life. Check out the Colin Tilley-directed clip below. It’s a neon affair.
