The New Classic

Love hurts. Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora are a deadly duo on “Black Widow” off the Aussie rapper’s debut The New Classic. The blonde bombshells get revenge on the dark love song, co-written by Katy Perry and produced by Benny Blanco and Stargate.

“I’m gonna love you until you hate me / And I’m gonna show ya what’s really crazy / You should’ve known better than to mess with me harder,” sings Rita over the trap beat.

Iggy’s album arrives Tuesday featuring collaborations with T.I., Mavado, and Watch the Duck.

She is also featured on Ariana Grande’s new single “Problem” and will kick off her tour on April 23 in Boston.

Iggy Azalea takes it to the trap with fellow blonde Rita Ora on “Black Widow,” rumored to be the next single off the Aussie rapper’s debut The New Classic. The dark love song, produced by Benny Blanco and Stargate, sounds like the sister of “Dark Horse” by Katy Perry, who wrote the chorus.

“I’m gonna love you until it hurts / Just to get you I’m doing whatever works,” raps Iggy.

You can preview snippets off Iggy’s entire album on iTunes in advance of its April 22 release.

Meanwhile, her Charli XCX-assisted single “Fancy” continues to climb the charts, rising 15 spots to No. 56 on the Hot 100 this week.

Rita Ora

Rita Ora proves that blondes have more fun in the video for “I Will Never Let You Down,” the first single off her upcoming sophomore album.

Directed by Francesco Carrozzini (BeyoncĂ©’s “Jealous”), the chic, yet simple clip features gorgeous black-and-white and color shots of the British singer as she dons a designer wardrobe and dances alongside two blonde women.

The uplifting song, produced by Calvin Harris, was inspired by Whitney Houston.

“It’s obviously a very important song to me because it’s a love song, but it reminds you of Whitney,” Rita told Paper. “And that was the vibe we were on. We just wanted to feel good. You know that feeling of ‘How Will I Know’ with the synth? It just makes you feel happy; that’s what I wanted to create.”

See Rita strut her stuff in the fierce and fashionable clip.

New Music: Rita Ora – ‘I Will Never Let You Down’

Rita Ora

Rita Ora reigns on. After conquering the U.K. with her 2012 debut Ora, the British bombshell comes back strong with “I Will Never Let You Down,” the first single off her sophomore album. Produced by her boyfriend Calvin Harris (“We Found Love”), the feel-good tune is bound to dominate radio and karaoke bars this summer.

“When you say you’ve had enough and you might just give it up / Oh, oh, I will never let you down,” sings Rita over the synth-heavy beat.

“I think this is the perfect song to launch my new album because I want it to be as personal and honest as possible and I’m happy right now,” said Rita. “I’m in a very good place. I really wanted people to just see how I felt and how I want other people to feel when they listen to my music, happy.”

The 23-year-old singer has collaborated with Macklemore (“Young Dreamers”) and Prince on her forthcoming album.

Does Rita have another hit on her hands? Listen and weigh in below.
