Australian rapstress Iggy Azalea has been making serious waves: The Wilhelmina model/Grand Hustle muse signed to Island Def Jam last week in addition to inking a deal with Mercury for her UK distribution. Impressive, but not as impressive as her new single “Bounce,” released this weekend, which pairs the fiery raps for which she gained popularity with a club-friendly house beat that’s the most commercial thing we’ve heard from her to date — more so even than the trappy “Work.” Here, she evokes a nastier Ke$ha, spitting, “Shake it, break it, make it bounce,” over a pounding beat.
The lyrics are party-happy, uncomplicated fun: “Let ya hair down and shake that shit / Sweat it out, go nuts in this bitch / Dip it, spin it, and watchin’ my hips / I see you watchin’ my hips / Crazy, move your body like Swayze.” World: Meet your new twerk anthem. Listen after the jump.
