Shortly after the release of her first single following a year-long hiatus, Iggy Azalea has dropped the visuals to "Team."

The music video for her debut track off of her upcoming album Digital Distortion may seem like your usual fun portrayal including fancy cars, funky fashion, some baller activities (private jet, anyone?) and a little dance break to really get you in the mood to bop your head and bounce your shoulders to the beat.

But the Aussie rapper took to Twitter after its release to chat with fans about what they think of the project, and revealed that there's actually a much deeper meaning to what you see in the video.

At one point, Iggy and her friends are spray painting the private plane, which the star explains to fans is a stance against "the establishment."

"The plane is establishment! spraying it is anti establishment. people are trying to drag me in it. my other selves are," she tweeted to one user, and wrote to another, "yeah i think you pretty much get the concept. media is establishment too technically."

Another fan questioned Iggy's confidence (or lack thereof), but the celeb clarified that she was just trying to tone it down a bit on this one. "Thanks, i was just being relaxed and not over the top draggish in my delivery. wasnt a confidence issue. :-)," she tweeted.

Following what she's depicted as a year she wishes she could "erase" from her memory, the song marks the first new music she's released since her collaboration on "Pretty Girls" with Britney Spears in May 2015.

"Team" focuses on the theme of a woman only needing herself. The chorus chants, "Baby I got me/ And that's all I need/ Yeah, that's all I need/ Only friend I see/ Playing on my team." In the hit, Iggy also name drops a couple celebs, including Reggie Miller, Hans Zimmer and even Kylie Jenner.

The concept of the video definitely falls in line with what the star has recently expressed about her struggles in the past year.

"Last year, I felt like I was definitely not in control of the media's narrative of me," she told Schön! magazine. "It made me feel very out of control of my own life or my ability to have my own perception of who I was. You don't want someone else writing your narrative and making you the villain," Iggy explained.

"Then I just realized that, you know what, you can't control it and I think I accepted that and moved on to living my life."
