Iggy Azalea & Rita Ora – “Black Widow” [Official Video]

 Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora channel Tarantino’s Kill Bill  in the video for “Black Widow”!

As I prepared to completely dismiss this I thought… in the words of O-Ren Ishii, “Silly Caucasian girl likes to play with Samurai swords”  but as the video progressed I found myself really enjoying the video. There are some funny moments by the woman playing Iggy’s boss and the cameos by Michael Madsen, T.I. and Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas)  are really great too. And both, Iggy and Rita look quite amazing as sword-wielding femme fatales. As a fan of Anime and Tarantino; I can’t help but grin at Black Widow, baby!

Thoughts?!

“Black Widow” is taken from Iggy’s debut album, The New Classic  out now.

Azealia Banks – “Heavy Metal and Reflective“ [Official Video]

 Azealia Banks‘ brand new jam, “Heavy Metal and Reflective“ receives the proper visuals with a clip directed by Rob Soucy x Nick Ace.“It’s supposed to be a little Tarantino kinda vibe, and it’s symbolic of me getting off the label,”  Banks tells Buzzfeed. She also adds: “So I’m really happy to get this project off. Cause I’ve already started working on a bunch of new stuff. I’m still connected to the [Broke With Expensive Taste] music, but I’m still somewhere else, with these other projects, because I know how quickly I like to move and my fan base likes to move. So I’m halfway, like one foot in Broke With Expensive Taste and one foot in the next project, and having all these other ideas. But I’m just happy that I can do whatever I want now.”

Expect Broke With Expensive Taste to arrive later this year via Banks’ own label, Azealia Banks Records. “Heavy Metal and Reflective“ is out now.

ADI ULMANSKY feat. BORGORE – Was It You? [Official Video]

Producer\Singer-songwriter\rapper and all around baddest chic, Adi Ulmansky teams up with rapper Borgore for the trip-hop, R&B-tinged tune, “Was It You?” her latest single and video taken from the killer, Hurricane Girl EP.

In the video, a visually mesmerizing treat directed by Gal Muggia, we see Ulmansky in stunning blue-hair, analyzing the numbing phases of her relationship; “Just where you left me, Wait, was it I that left you? Oh god, my head is melting, It’s a hazy view”  she soulfully sings as the world around her fractures into (perfectly squared) pieces.

The standout track is the only vulnerable moment from the energetic Hurricane Girl  so we’re glad it received the video treatment. Although, we sort of knew it was coming. Adi revealed to us that it’s her favorite track from the EP in our interview with her last year (here).

Check out the video!

“Was It You?” is available now via iTunes, part of the Hurricane Girl EP
