Single Cover: Iggy Azalea f/ Rita Ora – ‘Black Widow’

Black Widow

Blonde ambition. Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora combine their superpowers on the illustrated cover for “Black Widow,” the next single off Iggy’s debut The New Classic. The Kill Bill-inspired artwork shows a sword-wielding Iggy in action alongside her British counterpart, who rocks a cleavage-baring catsuit.

They have already shot a video for the vengeful anthem, co-written by Katy Perry and produced by Benny Blanco and Stargate. While the shoot required physical training, it won’t be movie-themed like Iggy’s “Fancy” video.

“It’s just a very physical video,” Iggy told MTV, while Rita added, “She’s literally putting me in bootcamp.”

The femme fatales performed the song live for the first time at last weekend’s Wireless Festival in the U.K.

Meanwhile, “Fancy” continues to dominate the charts. The Charli XCX-assisted song sits atop the Billboard Hot 100 for a seventh week.

    @m4ti, Not the best cover but tbh the song is amazing. Her verses aren’t great but the beat and singing parts are awesome. This song is going to be big.

    @m4ti, Why must all of her visual components be so entirely derivative. Is she that devoid of her own character? The Fancy video wasn’t even imagery of her own. It’s one thing to be inspired by something, but to completely re-enact the movie is unacceptable. And now this offense is being repeated and few are taking note. The ripped imagery paired with her appropriated southern accent is just one of the reasons why Iggy Azalea is not okay.

    @EveRyder, What you point out are shallow similarities, not deliberate replications.
    1. Please provide instances on which you claim these looks to have been stolen. Pasties? Meat Suits? I don’t think so.
    2. Wearing colorful hair is copywritten by Kim? Katy Perry Does it, Gaga does it, Rihanna does it Eve did it..next!
    3. Who goes out of their way to study someone else’s pose. Garbage-filled claim.
    This isn’t about Nicki, so your argument is null and void on top of being nonexistent.
    If you want to challenge my comment, you’ll need to come harder than that.

    @Mandela Barb, y’all barbs would try to make it seem like we are the ones dumb when y’all are actually the delusional ones. 1.since u tried to be sarcastic with the ur answer shows how actually dumb u are,but actually kim was the first rap bitch that wore pasties and that outfit nicki had on was one just like kim had on and u lucky we can’t provide links on here. Kim and gaga both wore stuffed animal dresses and then copy minaj. 2. U knw the style of her like in the hello goodmorning video, the printed designs hair. Yeah the all wore color hair,but they wore it like they wanted. Eve wore short colored hair something this other female rappers stayed away from bcuz bcuz Eve always took it out the box look. 3.ur answer nicki minaj. Any questions?

    Your hate on Nicki won’t bring more sales to 8K Eve. (Did it shipped wood already?)

    1. Who’s being sarcastic? Can’t you read properly? And how in the world being sarcastic shows how -actually- dumb someone is? And why you suddenly answered Mandela’s question? Wasn’t it “dumb”, as you said? And thanks for reminding us that Kim did it first, we care so much.

    2. Okay… what?

    3. False, no evidence to support your claims.

    Yes, one: is Eve going to “come” this year (like you claimed the past years) or should we wait?

    @-, Not comparing or trying to start an argument, but I did too. My mind went from Kill Bill to Nicki’s “Your Love” video.

    ———–

    Anyway, I like Rita a bit, but I’m not a fan of Iggy’s rapping. I don’t know how this is going to do but good luck to them both.

    Smdh at y’all iggy haters……y’all will do anything to try and discredit her success. Y’all not gonna sit here and say iggy didn’t kill that second verse bcuz she did. Her verses on this song is better than fancy besides the first line in fancy. I like some of rita’s songs especially r.i.p and shine ya light,but america don’t knw her like that or they aren’t feeling her bcuz they feel she’s a rihanna reject. This song will be a hit bcuz of iggy bcuz rita don’t have no hits in america only overseas. So try again haters. Iggy helped ariana move units for problem vs mac miller with the way and mac miller is a bigger artist than iggy. Tbh
