Her costar Vin Diesel leaked the news in a radio interview with France's Skyrock FM, according to Billboard. The latest installment of the car-racing franchise, starring Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson and Ludacris, is set for release in April 2015.
"Iggy Azalea, I just worked with her two weeks ago. … We cast her in Fast & Furious 7," Diesel reportedly shared.
Azalea, 24, has owned the summer airwaves with her cheeky hip-hop hit "Fancy," which sits at No. 2 on Billboard's Hot 100 list, and Ariana Grande collaboration "Problem."
She will get more television airtime Aug. 4, when she hosts MTV's House of Style for eight episodes. The series wraps up at the Aug. 24 MTV Video Music Awards, where Azalea has scored seven nominations, including video of the year.
