Is Sally Walker a drag queen?
Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea has been busy on social media teasing her upcoming single “Sally Walker,” the first release from In My Defense, her long-overdue second studio album.
After sharing a series of fishy promo images, Azalea posted a behind-the-scenes shot Saturday featuring RuPaul’s Drag Race sisters Mayhem Miller and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, who are expected to appear in the “Sally Walker” music video.

The “Fancy” singer, who has been known to publicly stan Drag Race contestants like Shea Coulée on Twitter, previously hired Raja, AKA Sutan Amrull, as her makeup artist. She has also queened out with RuPaul.
“I have so much respect & love for drag queens,” Azalea tweeted in January. “They make me feel like such a boring bitch. The amount of sheer personality alone put into the looks & performances really is something we could all take notes on.”

Azalea recently tapped gay YouTube beauty guru James Charles to paint her mug for the “Sally Walker” single artwork, so they also shot a makeup tutorial video. Charles became the first male spokesperson for CoverGirl cosmetics in 2016 after his glamorous senior photos went viral.
“Sally Walker” and its video will both drop March 15. Following Azalea’s departure from Island Records, In My Defense will be released independently this spring by her own label, Bad Dreams, in partnership with Empire Distribution.

In My Defense marks a creative comeback for the controversial performer, who famously canceled her 2015 arena tour and took a break from the murda bizness altogether after a string of feuds, a major breakup, and other drama.
Azalea also made headlines in 2015 when she canceled her appearance at Pittsburgh Pride amid criticism of her seemingly homophobic pre-fame tweets and her high performance fee.
