In a post shared on Twitter, Australian rapper Iggy Azalea criticised YouTube for refusing to promote her racy new music video for her track Sip It with Tyga.

"So @YouTube won't recommended my video or add it to trending because of the 'content in the video' I've waited 48 hours and still can't get a real answer from anyone at YouTube about why they have far more controversial videos in their trending list as we speak [sic]," the Fancy hitmaker shared over the weekend.

The music video for Sip It sees Iggy, along with a bunch of dancers, inside a convenience store, wearing risqué clothing, twerking and engaging in other sexually suggestive dances.

"I'm really disappointed because I'm indie and I depend on things like that for streaming. I sent my video in to their staff a week prior and they told me it was perfect, no issues. I don't really feel like it's fair, and I really wish someone at @youtube would resolve it [sic]," Iggy added in a follow-up tweet.
