Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora Slay On Set of ‘Black Widow’ Video

Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora are out to kill. The deadly duo joined forces on set of “Black Widow,” the latest single off Iggy’s debut The New Classic. After channeling Clueless in her “Fancy” video, the Aussie rapper drew inspiration from Quentin Tarantino’s thriller Kill Bill.

The femme fatales play sexy samurais in the action-packed clip, which was shot in L.A. over the weekend. Before they went in front of the camera, they underwent kung fu and samurai fight training.

In the intro scene, Iggy plays a waitress at a diner when Rita and Kill Bill star Michael Madsen walk in and take a table.

The sword-wielding ladies sport matching black-and-white jumpsuits with “Black Widow” written on the back while hunting down Madsen in an alley.

The video will premiere next month, but you can check out some behind-the-scenes pics below.

‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Spoofs Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’ in ‘Handy’ Video

Weird Al

“Weird Al” Yankovic gets “Handy” in the fourth video in his Mandatory Fun series. Following his spoofs of Pharrell’s “Happy,” Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” and Lorde’s “Royals,” the parodist puts his silly spin on Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX’s chart-topper “Fancy.”

Al plays a craftsman (“Remodeling is my only passion”), who patches drywall, cleans gutters, and even mows the lawn.

“I’m so handy / You already know / I’ll fix your plumbing when your toilets overflow,” he sings.

Watch Weird Al put in work.

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.

Crosby, Stills & Nash Cover Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’ on ‘Jimmy Fallon’

Crosby, Stills & Nash and Jimmy Fallon

“Fancy” is going folk. On Monday’s “Tonight Show,” Jimmy Fallon dressed up as Neil Young to cover Iggy Azalea’s chart-topping hit with some help from folk supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash.

Jimmy played guitar and harmonica before the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers joined him on stage. They even switched up some of the lyrics to include “Who dat? Who dat? C-S-N-Y.”

Iggy was blown away by the performance. “This made my whole day, so amazing – I am not worthy!” she said. “Thanks to whoever came up with this idea… Brilliantly done guys.”

“Weird Al” Yankovic has also parodied “Fancy” on a song called “Handy” for his upcoming album Mandatory Fun.

Watch C-S-N-Y cover I-G-G-Y.

“You jealous? You should be! #icouldnthelpmyself @thenewclassic #sorryNick!!!” said Rita, who kneeled down and struck a raunchy pose alongside Iggy.

The song, co-written by Katy Perry and produced by Benny Blanco and Stargate, follows “Fancy” as the next single off Iggy’s album The New Classic. A video has already been shot.

Watch the ladies perform it live.
