Beg For It - Iggy Izalea

Song: Beg For It (feat. Mø)
Artist: Iggy Azalea
Album: Reclassified

Iggy Azalea's had quite the year eh?

"Work" remains her biggest triumph, but "Fancy" sure caught fire, unquestionably supported by Charli XCX's monster hook chorus.  (Don't believe me?  Check out the original.)

Without any other big singles on the album post the okay "Black Widow," Iggy's going down the re-release path though instead of an E.P. or just tacked-on new bonus tracks, her album The New Classic has been... "rehauled" (?) as Reclassified, with five new tracks and missing a whole bunch.  Apparently this will be the album moving forward.  Okay?

So first up is "Beg For It" a literal carbon-copy of "Fancy" complete with Charli XCX-written hooky chorus.  But they replace Charli with Mø just to make it different enough.

Jennifer Hudson and Ellie Goulding are on the revised Reclassified, nothing all that inspired.  I've gone from cheerleader to semi-detractor with this girl.  What happened?

Just listen to "Work" again.
