Iggy Azalea - Fancy (ft. Charli XCX)

Iggy Azalea has always been someone I admired in theory. Essentially, I wanted to like her music because she was soooOO cool (Is this embarassing to admit? whatevr), but ultimately I hated it. With "Fancy", Iggy has changed my mind. First of all, she has chosen to emulate Kendrick with her half-enunciated delivery (ala Gurrrr , I knoo u want dattt dehhhh). I am not hating it. Secondly, the beat on this song is unreal. Simple but fierce. The presence of Charli XCX is also welcome. Her familiar vocal styling works well with rap. Sort of reminds me of Chiddy Bang and Icona Pop's "Manners." Single out April 6th, and hopefully it will be accompanied with a ridiculous video.
