Word has it that Iggy Azalea has sold her master recordings and publisher's catalog for what Iggy says is "worth an amount that means I don't have to work another day of my life."
On Monday, Billboard issued a report, citing "a source close to the deal," saying that Azalea's agreement with Domain Capital Group has included all of the artist's shares in its current catalogue. Additionally, the report added, a "trigger" for future earnings from masters is also part of the deal.

As is usual with news of this nature, the exact amount of the deal has not been publicly disclosed. However, Monday's report described the sale as an "eight-figure deal." Iggy's Bad Dreams label is now fully owned by the artist and has a new distribution deal yet to be finalized.
Complex has reached out to Domain Capital Group for comment, as well as a representative from Iggy. This story may be updated.
In tweets addressing the catalog business, Iggy has resisted being compared to the controversy surrounding Taylor Swift's master recordings, noting that Swift "didn't benefit" from the sale.
"I sold part of my catalog to whoever I wanted for an amount that means I never have to work a day in my life," Iggy said, adding that the pros and cons of the larger master discussion are "a little are beyond” the industry knowledge of most fans.
Taylor did not benefit from this sale.
I sold part of my catalog to whoever I wanted for a price that means I don't have to work another day of my life.
I love you all, but speaking with the Master is a little beyond most of your business understanding.

The End of an Era, Iggy's third studio release, came out last August via Bad Dreams and Empire. "Fancy," her 2014 blockbuster hit starring Charli XCX, was certified eight times platinum by the RIAA in March 2020.
