Iggy Azalea enlisted some help from Spider-Man and Batman while shooting the video for Steve Aoki’s “Beat Down” featuring Angger Dimas. The Aussie rapper, who just inked a deal with Wilhelmina Models, whips her blonde ponytail in a boxing ring as she struts in her stilettos.
T.I.’s protégée had full creative control over the video, which was inspired by a YouTube clip of people dancing in superhero costumes. “They were just getting it and I was like, ‘This has to be in here,'” said Iggy, whose EP Glory drops later this month.
“A lot of the stuff I was gonna save for the album,” she explained. “I sometimes like to hold on to stuff, but I didn’t. I put everything that I felt was great, I put it on Glory, and now I have nothing for my album [The New Classic]. I hope that everybody will really love this project ’cause I did give it my best.”
The full video for “Beat Down” will premiere June 21. Go behind the scenes below.
