According to Bartels, he wants to make sure Iggy builds a strong following with her current “Switch” single ahead of rushing out a full-body project.
“I think the big thing is focusing on the single [“Switch,” released in mid-May] and getting it into the marketplace. It just came out and the song has gotten some good feedback from radio and the team is working really hard at getting it charted. It’s a building process. The most important thing is getting her back to a place where she’s hot.” (Variety)
