Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea strikes again with a new blockbuster visual for single, ‘Black Widow feat. Rita Ora’. The international rap siren and Brit pop-sensation, Rita Ora, teamed up with Director X to create a Tarantino-esque video which pays homage to his iconic action/thriller ‘Kill Bill’.

Showcasing the pairs budding acting skills, the opener sets the scene, Iggy sporting a ‘Big Wanda’s Killer Burgers’ uniform, a waitress bent on revenge against the villain played by Hollywood royalty, Michael Madsen (Kill Bill Vol. 1, Reseviour Dogs).  Rita smoulders, putting on her best pokerface opposite a cameo appearance from hip hop mogul, T.I, and Hollywood star Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas, Nixon, Romeo & Juliet)”. Samurai swords are wielded through mid-air acrobatics as the two heroines set hearts racing in skin-tight catsuits; a nod to Uma Thurman’s original Kill Bill costume.

Iggy Azalea continues to reign the airwaves across the globe with her smash hit single, “Fancy feat. Charli XCX” which has sold over 4 million copies worldwide and has become most streamed track ever on US Spotify. “Fancy” also boasts the longest ever run at #1 by a female rapper (eclipsing Lil’ Kim’s 5 week run in 2001 with “Lady Marmalade”) and the video has received an incredible 200 million YouTube views, plus 7 VMA award nominations. The track soared to #1 in the Official charts in Canada and New Zealand, top 5 in the UK (certified silver) and Australia and also stayed strong at #1 in the US charts for 7 weeks and an impressive 16 weeks in the US Rap Charts. Iggy has been awarded two Teen Choice Awards for ‘Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song’ for ‘Fancy feat. Charli XCX’ and ‘Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Artist’. Later this year Iggy will make her big-screen debut in ‘The Fast & Furious 7’.

Rita Ora, the UK’s finest pop-stunner and international fashion icon, whose impressive musical credentials include four UK #1 single’s (“Hot Right Now”, “RIP” , “How We Do” & “I Will Never Let You Down”), plus international fashion and beauty campaign’s as the face of DKNY Jeans, Rimmel London, designer of her own Adidas range and budding screen actress with her film debut later this year in the upcoming “50 Shades of Grey”. Together, Iggy & Rita have created one of 2014’s biggest tracks, bringing their signature sound and flow to a killer-chorus (co-written by Katy Perry), amplified by the slick production of Stargate.

Iggy’s internationally critically acclaimed debut album ‘The New Classic’ hit #1 on iTunes in 19 countries worldwide and top 10 in a further 44 markets, in the US reaching #3 in the official chart, #1 Rap and #1 R&B/Hip-hop album charts, #2 in Canada and Australia, #3 in New Zealand and top 5 in the UK selling 450K copies worldwide.

August 24th will see Iggy and Rita take the stage together for an Exclusive TV performance of ‘Black Widow’ at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. Iggy Azalea will return to the UK in September for her much anticipated headline show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, following on from a sensational performance at this year’s Wireless Festival where she performed alongside Kanye West, Pharrell, Bruno Mars and Outkast.
