Iggy Azalea has released another single right on the heels of her “Iggy SZN” release. “Beg For It” features vocals from Danish singer, MØ and will be on Iggy’s upcoming album Reclassified. We can expect her new project to drop November 24.
Nope, it’s not #CarterSeason, #TetsuoSeason, or #KendrickSeason, it’s “Iggy SZN” according to Iggy Azalea, who proclaims such with this all-new track off her upcoming re-release album, Reclassified, on November 24th. I’m done with calling everything seasons though (even before this track, Iggy) but at the same time I shouldn’t complain since the “season” trend is about 47x less annoying than a lot of these other trends. There are synonyms for season though, just sayin’.
My season mini-rant above for some reason reminded me of the hilarious Horrible Bosses 2 trailer. Watch what happens with “Shower Buddy” in the first 50 seconds, hahah.
It’s 2014 so when you see Iggy Azalea and Pharrell as contributors for a new single, you only assume it’s aimed for the mainstream. Fortunately, this is Jennifer Hudson’s single so it’s more on the fresh end of the spectrum than cookie cutter.
Pharrell first establishes the tone with a funky, edgy and not happy-go-lucky beat. Note the subtleties throughout the transitions and Iggy’s guest verse. Before we get there, J-Hud’s piercing vocals give this song a resonating impact and thankfully she stays true to a lyrical story. Iggy puts down a fast flow, which is what I was hoping for because if she slowed it down to a talking tone than it woulda killed this single for me. I feel like J-Hud can carry this one by her lonesome, but Iggy’s presence should raise “He Ain’t Going Nowhere” upwards on the charts. I’m cool with it because the single doesn’t try to do that, though it’s certainly crossing over. Plus, this Pharrell production is a hot one that I hope other artists remix. At this point, hear for yourselves below… off Jennifer Hudson’s upcoming album, JHUD — out next Tuesday the 23rd.
Tonight, Kanye West headlined Philadelphia’s Made In America Festival: Day 1 as he came out to his 2014 set of the large rectangular screen and a series of turn-up songs like “Black Skinhead”, “I Don’t Like” (still showin’ the Chi love), and “Mercy”. I’m diving into this myself but read on Twitter there was no new music debuted and also a mishap with the lighting that ‘Ye instructed Virgil Abloh to fix. Parts 1 and 2 of Kanye West ‘Made In America’ full set is above.
Down below, more HD full stream sets of J. Cole & Iggy Azalea just prior to ‘Ye.
New friends J. Lo & Iggy Azalea team up for the remix to the former’s album cut that samples Diplo & Swick’s “Dat A Freak”. With Hype Williams said to be directing the video, and the hotness of Iggy Azalea on the charts, and yes the general hotness of Iggy Azalea & J. Lo, I suspect we’ll see this single rise up the charts as summer comes to a close.
