Iggy Azalea Returns With "Trouble"
Iggy Azalea has confirmed Jennifer Hudson-assisted anthem "Trouble" as her next 'Reclassified' single.

After spending most of December and January embroiled in controversy and Twitter drama, Iggy Azalea is returning her attention to the music. She shared a still from the set of her “Trouble” video on Twitter this morning (February 2) and it shows the rapper standing by the side of the road with collaborator Jennifer Hudson, who is dressed as a very hot cop. Other pics, which have surfaced online, show the Australian superstar in handcuffs.

Expectations are high for I-G-G-Y’s latest visual given the elaborate nature and YouTube domination (they have 670+ million views between them) of her last two clips — the Clueless-themed “Fancy” and Kill Bill-channeling “Black Widow.” It’s also going to get extra attention because Reclassified lead single “Beg For It” never got a video due to touring commitments. Happily, if the stills are any indication, we’re in for another blockbuster. Both divas look incredible and the ’70s vibe — Iggy is wearing flares — is a nice touch.

It will be interesting to see if “Trouble” performs as well as the multiple Grammy nominee’s previous singles. Fans were desperate for Ellie Goulding-assisted bop “Heavy Crown” to be the next cut from Reclassified, but Iggy (and her label) went with the J Hud collaboration due to audience testing. “[‘Heavy Crown’ is] not formatted for pop or rhythmic radio and i would lose two formats of airplay,” Iggy explained on Twitter. “People need to realize they ‘test’ the songs w ppl and give them scores. thats how it works, they pick based on what scores.”

“Trouble” is being directed by the femcee and friend Alejandra Hernandez. See the video still below.
