Singles[]

"Dance Like Nobody's Watching", featuring Tinashe, was released on August 21, 2020 as the originally intended lead single for the album, but was scrapped due to its under-performance.

The official lead single "Sip It" with Tyga was released on April 2, 2021, along with its music video, which caused controversy, with Azalea rightfully calling out YouTube for not promoting the video. The song was omitted from the standard track listing, but is expected to be featured in the deluxe edition, yet to be released. "Brazil" was also released as a promotional single on the same day.

"I Am the Stripclub" was released on July 2, 2021 as the second single for the album.
