New York, NY (Top40 Charts) To promote her upcoming album Surviving The Summer, which is slated to drop later year, Iggy Azalea decides to come through today and share the official video for her lead single "Savior" featuring Quavo, who unfortunately doesn't make an appearance here.
The symbolic visual, directed by Colin Tilley, takes place inside a Neon Cathedral decked out with neon fixtures and religious imagery. Iggy, dressed in all white, walks down the aisle of a church, and is also seen in black with a neon halo around her head and burning roses in her hands. As the video progresses, she gets baptized and eventually rises from the darkness to a place of light, ultimately realizing that she is her own savior.
"The song itself 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," explained Iggy. "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."
Up next, Iggy is set to release her long-awaited sophomore album Surviving the Summer, the follow-up to her 2014 debut The New Classic.
