"Fast & Furious 7" is getting all fancy on us.
The next installment of Universal's automotive action franchise will feature an appearance by Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, whose electro-dusted single "Fancy" has been an inescapable earworm this summer and currently holds the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
Azalea's name came up during an interview with France's Skyrock FM, prompting Diesel to reply, "I just worked with her two weeks ago. I guess you'll be the first person that knows this: We cast her in 'Fast & Furious 7.'"
Diesel didn't offer any specifics of Azalea's role, though he did describe it as a cameo. The actor also posted a photo of him (clad in a black tank top) and Azalea (in a pink satin racing jacket) on set via his Facebook page.
With her appearance in the film, which is currently scheduled to open April 3, 2015, Azalea becomes the latest in a long line of musicians to buckle up for the series. Her predecessors include Ja Rule, Ludacris, Bow Wow and Rita Ora.
