Iggy Azalea Teams Up With VVAVES On The Fiery “Boys Like You”
Update: “Boys Like You” has arrived. Listen to Iggy Azalea and VVAVES’ feisty collab below.
Iggy Azalea really means business in 2019. After going viral with two singles (“Sally Walker” and “Started”), the Australian rapper jumps on a new track by VVAVES. The Canadian singer/songwriter announced “Boys Like You” on her social media accounts and it’s shaping up to be a fiery fuck-you anthem — at least if the snippet is any indication. “If You always get off easy, you won’t ever learn,” Emma Rosen (her real name) sings, before hammering her point across in the chorus: “Fuck boys like you.”
“I want to set a good example for all the females listening,” VVAVES says of the collaboration. “I want them to feel empowered through the lyrics and the production, I want women to have fun and celebrate themselves.” She then clarifies the song’s message. “It’s not ‘fuck men’ or ‘fuck the industry,’ it’s ‘fuck letting yourself get treated as less than you are.’ It’s a reminder that we have the power and responsibility to speak up.” Get a taste for “Boys Like You” below. It drops on Friday (May 24).
