Video: Iggy Azalea – ‘Bounce’

Iggy Azalea

From Australia to India. Iggy Azalea goes global in the Bollywood-themed video for “Bounce,” the second U.K. single off her debut The New Classic. The Aussie rap sensation soaks up the culture in the colorful clip. She dances in saris and rides an elephant through the streets of Mumbai.

The shoot was a dream come true for the 22-year-old, who recently inked a deal with Island Def Jam. “Shooting ‘Bounce’ in India was surreal,” Iggy told Rap-Up TV. “It’s just so crazy to dream something so big and actually see it happen.”

She hopes the video will inspire others. “I think record labels need to reinvest in doing stuff like that,” said Iggy. “It helps create the fantasy and the bigness of an artist. This video definitely perpetuates escapism.”

See Iggy’s vision to come life in the vibrant visuals.

    @wtf, lol I like how you’re throwing subs at nicki. if you have to kick one female rapper to hype up another, why don’t you just keep your opinions to yourself. the song AND the video was lame.

    The video started out very cinematic like the start to a great movie then the beat kicked in and then got extra corny. Bali wood choreography to this beat just seemed outa place. I wish it stayed more serious with her just being fierce on elephants n sh#t… Oh well. Maybe next single. Still like her

    Honestly THE BEST video ever created!! EVER. she fuckin did this.. So much quality put into this. Iggy is a hard worker.. not like some lazy artists who just put out a cheap low budget video.. brand new artist and she’s doing it like a veteran.

    @Matt, Matt her video being not low budget doesn’t mean she is a hard worker and others are lazy, they just don’t have the same budget because they are on their grind. TF. very dumb comment.

    @Miss AMerica, Actually yea… Some artists rely on the director to think of everything. Iggy got the indian mafia to get a fucking elephant! It took 2 weeks to get it! She put lots of effort into making a great video!

    Not trying to start an argument or whatever, and it is my opinion so I couldn’t really give a fuck what you other people say about it anyway, this reminds me of ‘Pound the Alarm’ so, so much.
    The concept of the whole video and everything.
    Like, in the beginning, how she had clips of whatever country she was in and then it fades out and then the video starts like ‘Pound the Alarm’
    And then how it’s very cultural and looks sort of like an Indian based parade theme (Nicki’s was just in Trinidad)
    I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me. And I’m not comparing her to Nicki just because I’m a Nicki fan. I’m not an idiot like 50% of Onika’s fan base.

    But anyway, I don’t like the lyrics very much. They seem really basic to me. “Time to party that’s all I know. Grab somebody tell them baby, baby, baby let’s go.” The lyrics are so basic and worn out in like, every party song.
    She is beautiful, though. I love her makeup.
    Idk what kind of buzz this would get. Since it is a pop song it does have the potential to get somewhat noticed.

    This is sort of “Blah” for me. I like her rapping better.

    I don’t know if I like her music, but visually she’s always on point and I really like her. She seems like a nice girl with her head on straight and isn’t on her on naughty bits. I personally need that after dealing with Onika and Azealia’s foolishness.

    This video is crap. I was expecting a better video for that song. The video doesn’t even match the song, and she can’t dance. I just don’t get it. She’s not going to be as “big” as Nicki Minaj or Azealia Banks. If she does become “big” then it would be purely on the way she looks, she’ll fade away within a year or two. The ‘Work’ video was ten times better, too bad she couldn’t follow that up with a better video. Video rank: Unsatisfactory. Stars: ** 2 stars.

  41. I hate fake female Artist with no talent who bring shame to their nations and apparently expose them selves and inflict harm on the souls with out using their brains

    This bitch needs to stop making music she is just a joke to Australia period and she is mocking Indian culture they can clearly see that but some won’t because they are blinded by the harsh reality so It’s best for her to quit music and stop making trashy music which won’t be liked by the society it kills the society and harm the society but not fix the society so give up and do something with your life okay ?

    @I hate fake female Artist with no talent who bring shame to their nations and apparently expose them selves and inflict harm on the souls with out using their brains, how is she Mocking Indian culture? Give examples plz cuz I don’t see that. That’s like saying somebody from another country wearing an American flag tee in a music video shot in America is mocking America. How so?

    Some of the scenes in this video remind of me one of Ke$ha’s videos. The bollywood theme is cool and the song is just OK. “Work” is 100x better.
