I have previously expressed my fondness for Charli XCX in this space. I am less familiar with the oeuvre of Iggy Azalea, but if this collaboration between the two is any indication she is an artist whose other work I would enjoy. Anyway, it is Friday of what has been yet another intolerable week, and if you need just a little push to help get you over the finish line this is not unsuitable for such an effort. Enjoy.
Yikes. Kind of amazing how well the aesthetics of the child beauty pageant circuit—with all its exploitation, and existing as it does under the long shadow of the JonBenet Ramsey murder—matches up with a sexed-up gangsta rap song. Also kind of amazing to hear how well Iggy Azalea, a 22-year-old rapper from Sidney, Australia, mimics the tone and inflection of Dirty South MCs like T.I., who signed her to his Atlanta-based Grand Hustle record label last year. All in all, very creepy and effective.
