Australian rapper Iggy Azalea is going from “Fancy” to Fast & Furious.
Iggy Azalea’s hit song “Fancy” not only set a new #1 Billboard record this summer, but the track’s catchy hook also earned the female rapper a cameo in Fast & Furious 7, the latest installment of Universal’s successful car-racing/heist franchise.
The role will mark Azalea’s acting debut, but there’s no word yet on who she might play.
“Iggy Azaela, I just worked with her about two weeks ago,” Vin Diesel told Skyrock.fm while promoting Guardians of the Galaxy. “We casted her in ‘Fast & Furious 7’. She has a cameo in ‘Fast & Furious 7’.”
Fast & Furious 7 is set to open in theaters on April 3, 2015 starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ronda Rousey, Tony Jaa, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kurt Russell, Djimon Hounsou, Lucas Black, and the late Paul Walker.
Azalea will also bring her talents to television as the new host of MTV’s House of Style, premiering August 4 on MTV.com.
