Media picks of the week: Iggy Azalea, 24: Live Another Day
Every week Apple adds tons of new media content on iTunes — music, books, movies and more. It's impossible to keep up with all of it, but it's not impossible to pick out the very best. Here they are! This week we've got new music from an up-and-coming hip hop star, a fast-paced action show, and more!
Iggy Azalea - The New Classic (Deluxe Version)
After several years of releasing free "mixtapes" for download, Australian-born hip hop artist Iggy Azalea's debut major labor release was finally released in late April. Her collaboration with English pop star Charli XCX "Fancy" has already made the rounds, partly thanks to a cheeky video homage to the movie "Clueless." But there's a lot of other solid work here, too, like the biographical "Work," "100," a collaboration with Watch the Duck, and more. The deluxe version sports an extra three tracks.

Superman: Red Son (New Edition)
What would have happened if the spaceship carrying baby Jor-El had landed and been raised in the cold war-era Soviet Union instead of the United States? That's the question this alternate history story written by Mark Millar (and originally published in 2003) seeks to answer. This is the digital edition of a trade paperback reprint published by DC in April that comprises the three issues of the original Red Son's run.
