As she first reported while speaking with an Entertainment Tonight reporter during Cardi B's Fashion Nova launch party on Wednesday (Nov. 14), Iggy claims that she's signed a lucrative new record deal worth $2.7 million.
"Proud to say I literally just signed my new deal/partnership!" Iggy told her Twitter followers. "2.7mil, can sign others, own my masters + 100% independent - I'm feeling like such a bossy grown ass bitch today! Time to get back to ME. I'm so grateful & excited..."
While the ink dries on her new contract, Iggy was thrilled to share the news with her fans. "I'm just so happy & excited; I wanted to tell you guys as soon as the pen hit the paper!" she added.
