Blonde ambition. Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora slay the screen in the cinematic video for “Black Widow,” the latest single off Iggy’s debut The New Classic. After channeling Clueless in her “Fancy” video, the Aussie rap sensation draws inspiration from Quentin Tarantino’s thriller Kill Bill.

The femme fatales star as sword-wielding samurais in the action-packed clip, which was shot in L.A. and features cameos from T.I. and Kill Bill star Michael Madsen. Iggy plays a waitress at a diner and dreams of exacting revenge on the obnoxious Madsen, but something gets to him first.

Before they went in front of the camera, the ladies underwent kung fu and samurai fight training.

They will perform the song live at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 24.

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.

What happens when Rita Ora meets Prince? You get the “single most amazing thing in the room.” The Roc Nation singer has previewed her collaboration with the Purple One in a behind-the-scenes video from Roberto Cavalli’s Autumn/Winter 2015 campaign. The song, entitled “The Single Most Amazing,” was penned by Prince and produced by Josh Welton.

“She didn’t care how many there were and who / ‘Cause she was fallin’ in love with single most amazing thing in the room,” sings Rita over lush horns.

She previously spoke about working with the pop legend. “We did a few tracks together,” she told Paper. “I flew to Minneapolis and went to Paisley Park, which is like his iconic studios and we just made music. I was there for a week. It was the best thing I have ever done in my life.”

In addition to Prince, she has been in the studio with Diplo, DJ Mustard, and Macklemore for her sophomore album, due this fall.

Prince has also recorded an “aggressive and menacing” rap song with Rita for his upcoming album.
