Iggy Azalea offers up a piano-driven, throwback jam for her new single. Trouble, featuring the R&B styling of powerhouse Jennifer Hudson and produced by The Invisible Men and Saltwives, is the latest entry from her Reclassified reissue (following The New Classic). For the song's official lyric video (below), Azalea borrows some Charlie's Angels, mid-'70s accents—hinting at what the music video has in store. Having quite recently filmed the full-length clip, Azalea is on a hot streak of creativity and doesn't plan on slowing down in 2015.
On Hudson's role in the video, the rapper shares (with MTV News):
“I will say Jennifer’s character, I think you’re kind of like the sassy, no beep-taking type of police boss lady,” Iggy said, referencing JHud. “I am, I suppose, just a bit of an accidental Bonnie and Clyde that I’ve naively have fallen into the role that I don’t really want to be into… She keeps it under control.”
Azalea adds, “Anytime there’s a video with a strong narrative and you really get to play a character and perform that character and give the character its own quirks and things, you really get to have fun with it."
Trouble follows the smashing success of Fancy, Black Widow and Beg For It.
