Lyric Video: "Problem" by Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea

>> When I get stressed, I turn to pop music.  Sometimes it's intentional, sometimes it's instinctual.  So it's no secret that I've been listening to a whole lot of Iggy Azalea recently. (Just check my most listened to artists on Twitter each week - it's getting excessive in the best way.)

>> Now that I'm really aware of Iggy, I found that she was featured on a new song called "Problem" by Ariana Grande.  Maybe it's because I've been in a pop mood for the past 6 months, or maybe it's because the song was designed by robots mastering in catchy tunes, but either way this song is a jam.

>> "Problem" has the classic Ariana Grande vocals, including high notes that are simply impressive.  Then there's Iggy Azalea and her smooth verse about being an independent woman coming at the 3/4 mark of the song.  As if that and the energetic sax tune weren't enough, the track includes a guy whispering "I've got one less problem without you" in a way that would make the Yin Yang Twins proud.  If you're looking for a song to get caught in your head and distract you from all the things that are going on, if you're looking for a song to rock out to in celebration of spring, if you're looking for a catchy song by two beautiful and popular female musicians - you've found it. Watch the lyric video below, and download the song on iTunes here.
