[Discuss] Are We Liking Iggy Azalea? (Also, Check Out The Orchestral Version Of "Work")

Iggy Azalea - Work

I initially listened to Iggy Azalea's Work and hated it. But now I can't get enough of it! How does that happen? It's not like I kept listening to it over and over until my sense of taste relented. It was more like one second I hated it, the next I LOVED it. Stupid subconscious, always subverting my concious thoughts!!

From the compelling lyrics documenting her far from easy struggle to relevance, to the 1st Down and The Invisible Men trap-pop beat, Work is a tasty piece of pie that is as easy on the ear as it is on the eye- just check out the super hot video! I just wonder why I never noticed all this goodness the first time round. There's no denying there is an abrasive and grubby side to the whole project (and the rapper, herself), but that's something that only puts me further under Azalea's spell. After all there's nothing more boring than a plastic pop/rap/whatever star. 

So what's are your thoughts on Work, and more importantly Iggy Azalea? I know she's been on the scene since 2011 releasing mixtapes, but I honestly haven't paid her any mind until this song. As of now, I'm cautiously excited about her and am currently resisting the urge to dig up everything pre-work (lest I be bitterly disappointed). Instead, I'll wait until this year's Glory EP- which Work is taken from- is released before I come to any firm conclusions about Iggy.

But don't let that stop you guys having your say!

Live (orchestral) Version:



  1. I actually quite like this, it is very refreshing. Normally I am not much of a rap buff to be honest, in fact the last rap album I bought was by Lil' Kim (La Bella Mafia) which was a pretty brilliant album!

    As for the influx of rap diva's these days this lady sounds about as interesting as it gets in comparison to the others, including Banks and Angel Haze...

  2. Imo, Iggy and Ms. Banks are the two best female rappers out there (thought I prefer Azaelia)

  3. I again quite like some of the works of Banks, my only problem with her is her caustic attitude, she seems to take great entertainment in hacking off others, something I really cannot stand.

  4. I started listening to her a while ago. I was sooooo obsessed with her song "My World" but I think her rapping accent is so contrived that I can't take her seriously.

  5. Yeah, her twitter beefs leave me dumbfounded xD

    She really needs to cool it, but I love her music.

  6. I liked the audio of the first and visuals of the second.
    I was also amused at the basic similarity I see between this song and Bobby Gentry's ''Fancy'' . A country tune from 1969. (Which I discovered only recently through my new found fascination Kelly Clarkson lol )

  7. I dislike rap, except for some Nicki and Azealia. Other than that no.

  8. Totally, if she doesn't she will merely offend too many people and it will be a case of crash and burn for her career before its even started, never cool :|

  9. DD, Glory was released last year, "Work" is her debut single from her upcoming debut album "The New Classic." So happy Iggy is getting love on this site ! AUSTRALIANS UNITE haha :)

  10. It takes a while to get used to, but I actually like it about her now. Its because she refined her rapping in atlanta when she was 17 with southern rappers

  11. Several decades back English was spoken simply in Britain, America and a few
    British colonies. In addition, you'll want a teacher who has taken the time to become certified. Finally, parents teaching the language at home should take advantage of the easy access to English materials available around the world.

  12. I think she's talented, I just really hate the fake southern traphouse accent that she puts on when she raps, so it keeps me from getting into her music. The juxtaposition of her natural Australian accent to the subject matter/beats would be really dope. I didn't know y'all covered rap artists.

  13. Just wish tto say your aгticle іs as astonishing.
    The claгity in your post is simply great and і can assume you're an edpeгt on this subject.
