New Music: Iggy Azalea – ‘Work’

Iggy Azalea

Days after wrapping her U.K. tour with Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea drops “Work,” the first single from her upcoming debut. The blonde rap sensation hustles hard on the twerking anthem, produced by 1stDown of FKi.

“Thanks for supporting me and im happy to have a first single about my story and not something meaningless i hope it inspires and motivates,” tweeted Iggy.

In March, she will head out on Nas’ European tour with opening act Meek Mill.

Listen to Iggy put in “Work” on the radio rip below.

    Yall to basic to understand music. Anyone remember Nicki’s first single Massive Attack? That was terrible, but hey look at her now. All you losers need to get back into your caves.

    I won’t say the girl can’t rap because she can rap, she isn’t nothing extraordinary but she has something. I give the song a 6.5/10, so/so lyrics, nice beat & the song has a nice message too it. I do look forward too hearing her new stuff in the future.

    I don’t understand why people here are some ignorant. If you don’t like a song, cool. No one is saying you have to like the song or be a fan of the artist, but don’t hoe their life. Just say something simple like, I don’t like it. Other people do that and it’s respectable.

    When you become a successful A&R or CEO of a record label, than give all that extra bs. For now leave these artists alone and let them get there paper. Shit!

    this girl loves and looks up to Nicki. There’s no reason to put them against each other.

    @JoJo, Smentions Nicki quite a few times in her songs, and did it ever occur to you she can look up to both.

    [Reply]

    JoJo Reply:

    @Natasha, Just because she mentions her in songs, It does not mean she looks upto her. iggy’s only 5-6 years younger then Nicki, Iggy was an adult when Nicki became famous. She respects nicki for openeing doors for her and she likes her music thats where the line is drawn

    @jj, no one opened the doors for Nicki she was the first in a long time there was no other female rapper around 07 08 09. She re-opened a door that had been firmly slammed shut

    THIS IS AMAZING
    It’s very rare to come across a club anthem with meaningful lyrics. Her story is beautiful and I hope she does well

    That head over heels line has been made so many times. And I see that this is something that Iggy does a lot. She just recycles what has already been said by other rappers. She puts on this accent that’s highly annoying, because it makes it hard to understand what she’s saying. Her lyrics are so mediocre, it’s not even funny. I do believe she works hard. But, for God’s sake, since when has it become so easy for an artist to put something as wack as this out as an official single and people just eat it up? I honestly believe it’s the internet. A few years ago you had to reach millions in order for people to want to invest time and money in you, now you just need a couple of thousand and you can get shit done. But a couple of thousand is nothing compared to a world of billions. Nothing personal with Iggy, but she’s not a rapper at heart and the only reason why this is getting the attention it’s getting is because of her appearance.

    Lisa Reply:

    @JoJo, is that what your rational mind came up with? Why is it that you think that someone with a negative opinion has to be someone without a life of their own?

    I doubt you would respond to someone’s opinion like that in real life, because it’d simply be unreasonable.

    I’m not sabotaging Iggy Azalea’s success and I’m not bothering her personally with my opinion. This website is just the right setting, because people with the same interest, but different opinions come together and can see what other people have to say. Don’t ruin that by insulting those who don’t think the way that you do.

    I respect Iggy Azalea and I respect you, and I ask of you and others to respect me and each other in return.

    @Lisa, I completely agree. I am white too but will whole-heartedly agree she is only getting attention because she’s white & in the hop hop game she’s gonna stand out because of that fact – people are intrigued. She’s a gimmick – the accent she puts on in her raps makes me laugh when I hear it cuz she just sounds so ridiculous! Her raps NEVER flow right and the lyrics are always incredibly mediocre. I also appreciate how hard she works but she seriously needs to put the effort in to something else she enjoys because she is NOT cut out for it. If she wants a shot she should seriously make T.I be her ghost writer at least! Less respect but at least it would be easier on the ears.

    [Reply]

    Lisa Reply:

    @B-rocka, exactly, I don’t think she is trying to profit from the fact that she has an uncommon appearance for a rapper, but that’s what the people who are investing in her are doing.

    She’s not completely horrible, but qualitatively her music does not add up to amount of praise she’s receiving. The producers do a lot of the work for her, by hooking her up with catchy beats. And she has enough confidence to go through with this, even when she’s not delivering. People who are interested in lyrics will notice it, though.

    And I am baffled that Nas has personally picked her to tour with him. Out of all the young aspiring rappers this generation counts. Too bad.

    Dessa murders Nicki Minaj. In fact, Dessa, Iggy Azalea, Azealia Banks, Angel Haze, Jean Grae, Kellee Maize… Fuck, even Santigold can all rap Nicki under the dirt. Real talk. Shut the fuck up.

    Anyway, I’m glad Iggy’s lyricism has grown. She has a very clear mind of what she wants to do, so I hope the album isn’t a flop cuz I have higher hopes now. This single is great.
