MULLUMBIMBY's recording artist Iggy Azalea has released her debut album The New Classic on top of the iTunes charts in the United States today.

Amethyst Amelia Kelly (Iggy's real name) was also the subject of a photo and editorial spread in the April 2014 edition  of  US Vogue magazine.

Azalea has become a favourite of the US rap scene soon after moving to the US three years ago.

The New Classic currently sits at number one on iTunes in the United States, ahead of the Frozen soundtrack.

The album is expected to have a similar reception on the Billboard 200 (the official US album chart) this week.

Iggy Azalea was born in Sydney, Australia.

Her family later relocated to when she was still an infant, into a house on 12 acres that her father built by hand from mud bricks.

Azalea dropped out of high school; instead choosing to work and save the money in order to move to the US to pursue a music career.

Azalea traveled to the United States in 2006, right before she turned 16.

She told her parents she was going on a holiday with a friend, but eventually decided to stay and shortly after told them she was not coming back home.

Check out her latest video below:
