Iggy Azalea has a bit more time on her hands since rescheduling her summer tour for the fall and says it may lead to the follow-up of New Classic coming out sooner than expected. Even better news, it will feature the much-talked about collaboration with Britney Spears.

But, have you been wondering these two hooked up? It’s actually a funny story that all started at a Toys ‘R Us.

In an interview with the Associated Press (via Billboard), Azalea explains that “I saw her at Toys “R” Us randomly; she lives right down the street from me. …Since I’ve met her now we keep bumping into each other in the street.

“I love Britney,” Azalea said. “She’s super sweet and I just want to hang out with her all the time.”

Azalea also admits that after some of the criticism she received after releasing her debut, she was getting discouraged about the music business. Luckily, Brit Brit was around to show her the way.

“I don’t know if I needed re-inspiring,” Azalea explained of getting in the studio with Britney, “but it’s just made me extra excited to want to put out new music.”
