Iggy Azalea, The New Classic: Reclassified

600_1412871066_iggy_azalea_reclassified_14Aside from the success of ‘Fancy’, Iggy Azalea is riding high with the success of ‘Black Widow’ and her success all over Billboard. With that being said, it’s only right that her debut, The New Classic be released titled, The New Classic: Reclassified.

The album is set to be released next month, she tweeted it’s currently being mastered. The rerelease will of course feature the original album, for those who never listened past the radio hits, along with six new tracks.

Expect a review on those additional tracks, but in the meantime, check out my review to The New Classic, HERE!

 

Video Review: Iggy Azalea x Rita Ora, ‘Black Widow’

IMG_3562.JPGWhile I am usually a huge fan of Iggy Azalea videos, this one has to be my least favorite. There have been pictures circulating for weeks for ‘Black Widow’ and the snippet that was released did not match that of the video. There’s no surprise that it had a Kill Bill theme, but being that Iggy is all for themes the video should’ve been just that. The diner scene in the beginning reminded me a lot of Lady Gaga’s, ‘Telephone’. In fact, the videos are very similar in using the Kill Bill theme as the truck from Kill Bill was used in ‘Telephone’.

Although the video was nicely put together, it did nothing for me. I get what they were going for, but it was really nothing spectacular to me. It was just a little bland. I know there was action and that’s a different side of Iggy, but she has better videos.

Be sure to catch her LIVE on the VMAs with Rita Ora when they perform ‘Black Widow’ on 8.24.Check out the video below:

‘Fancy’ was released February 17, 2014 and five months later on July 27th it was declared triple platinum. The that it took to get to #1 is similar to that of Nicki Minaj‘s, ‘Starships’,which was released on February 14, and was declared triple platinum on August 16, 2012. Iggy has reached the mark a hare faster and she was able to lock down the Hot 100 for seven weeks.
