A “Switch” Fan! Katy Perry Loves Iggy Azalea’s New Single
There’s no bad blood here! Katy Perry left a cute comment on Iggy Azalea’s Instagram to say how much she loves the rapper’s new single, “Switch.” “Love this one can’t wait,” the pop star, who co-wrote “Black Widow,” enthused. “Thanks Katy!” I-G-G-Y replied. “Watched yours a million times yesterday.” (Of course, she’s referring to the just-released “Bon Appetit” visual). It’s nice to see pop’s leading ladies showing the Aussie hitmaker a little support after treating her like a pariah for most of 2015/2016.
As for “Switch,” it comes out on Friday (May 19) and features Brazilian superstar Anitta. The somewhat-unlikely pair already have TV performances lined up and they recently filmed a video, which looks like a sexy affair from this eye-popping preview. At one point, the clip was thought to have a Jurassic Park theme. However, it turns out that was just a SnapChat prank. It will be interesting to see how “Switch” is received. “Mo Bounce” was well reviewed, but failed to dent the Billboard Hot 100 — a fact Iggy openly acknowledged in a string of tweets.
