Iggy Azalea teams up with Rita Ora for new single ‘Black Widow’

The song follows the rapper's global smash hit 'Fancy'

Rapper Iggy Azalea has teamed up with Rita Ora for her new single ‘Black Widow’.

The song will be released on September 14 and features a chorus written by Katy Perry as well as production from Stargate. The release follows Azelea’s guest spot on Ariana Grande’s ‘Problem’, as well as ‘Fancy’ featuring Charli XCX, which has now sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide.

Azalea has spoken about the forthcoming video for the song, commenting: “We’re gonna have a very crazy music video, with a lot of other people that you guys may know, playing different characters. I’m really excited about it.”

Azalea plays Wireless Festival this weekend. The Australian rapper recently matched The Beatles US chart record, scoring both the Number One and Number Two spots in the Billboard Hot 100, with her first two entries on the chart, ‘Fancy’ and ‘Problem’. The last act to achieve this feat was The Beatles in February 1964, with ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand’ at Number One and ‘She Loves You’ at Number Two.

Speaking about the accolade, Azalea said it didn’t “mean anything”. Distancing herself from the record, she said: “I’d rather be The Rolling Stones.”

Iggy Azalea also made news when she criticised Lorde’s appearace at Nirvana’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction, arguing that her appearance wasn’t appropriate as she was not a peer of Kurt Cobain.
