"Remember my name, about to blow," wails Charli XCX on the hook to Iggy Azalea's new single, "Fancy." It's a fitting statement from the two burgeoning pop stars, both of whom have been trying to break into the mainstream ever since being tipped as the next big things by bloggers and music mags a couple of years ago.
With that in mind, it's no surprise to see that the two ended up together on "Fancy": a blog-friendly electro-hop number with stabby synths, hip-hop chants, and finger snaps -- all of which provide the perfect backdrop for the two leading ladies to let loose with their signature bratty, boastful rapping.
"Trashed the hotel / let's get drunk on the minibar," chants Charli. "Hot girl, hands off, don't touch that," raps Iggy after jumping in. "Look at it / I bet you're wishin' you could clutch that."
"Fancy" doesn't sound like the song that's going to take the pair from the world wide web to the top of the Hot 100, but it's still a strong effort that should please their respective fanbases.
Take a listen below.
The hit musical will drop on Disney+ July 3rd.
Lin Manuel-Miranda's Hamilton has taken the theater world by storm since its 2015 Broadway premiere.
A hip-hop musical about America's founding fathers doesn't sound immediately appealing, but Manuel-Miranda's brilliant song writing and diverse casting not only captured the attention of audiences, but proved that major change is possible within an art form as encumbered by traditions as musical theater.
The white supremacist Trump fan is back in jail—again—a symbol of everything wrong with America's prison system.
"I am a white supremacist. The Aryan Nation will rule the world!"
If you think that sounds like the words of a man who is about to be deservedly choked out, you're partially right. But before 36-year-old Nicholas Arnold Schock got taken down by a group of brave bystanders in Nokomis Florida, he would do a lot more to deserve such aggressive treatment.
The viral video of the incident opens with a belligerent Schock, half-naked, shouting at the staff of Pop's Sunset Grille to "call Donald Trump, he's gonna come get me out of prison." It's not evident what sparked the confrontation—whether Schock was refusing to wear a mask in the popular open-air venue, or simply wanted to strip naked. Whatever the case, Schock was seemingly convinced that Donald Trump would have his back in the ordeal.
