Iggy has suffered a number of career woes after dropping her smash hit album The New Classic in 2014, which heralded the singles Fancy and Pretty Girls.
Her 2016 song Team went gold, but her three follow-up singles Switch, Mo Bounce and Savior all failed to crack the top 100 despite heavy promotion.
Kream debuted at No. 96 on the Billboard Hot 100, when it was released to the US charts last July.
