New Music Video: "Black Widow" by Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora

>> Iggy Azalea unveiled a new music video for her song "Black Widow" featuring Rita Ora.  The Kill Bill-inspired video features two female assassins, tight jumpsuits, T.I., sword fights, and several dramatic hair flips.  Better yet, there's a cameo from Michael Madsen who played Budd (you know, Bill's brother) in Kill Bill.  This time around, Madsen is being pursued by two musically inclined assassins instead of The Bride.  Intrigued? Watch the video below.

>> The song is one of my personal favorites from Iggy's album The New Classic which came out earlier this year, and making the video for it heavily influenced by a film I've been watching almost non-stop lately?  I'm hooked.

>> While it definitely gets cheesy at points (can we talk about the bacon sandwich exchange?), the mini-narrative in the video definitely compliments the song and its lyrics.  It's a great combination, and it was certainly a good follow-up to Iggy's "Fancy" video which was essentially a recreation of the movie Clueless. 

>> Like what you hear? Tune in to the MTV Video Music Awards on August 24th to catch Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora perform "Black Widow!"
