TODAY is bringing the hottest hit-makers to Rockefeller Plaza for the Toyota Concert Series on TODAY. 

The latest act added to our lineup had a "Fancy" side to her. Rising rapper Iggy Azaela behind the summer smash is made her TODAY concert debut on August 8. If you missed it, watch it here.

Summer isn't over yet so there's still time to catch a concert.
