Australian indie rapper turned Grand Hustle signee Iggy Azalea’s latest single packs as much punch as its aptly named song title. “Beat Down”, collaboratively produced by UK electro DJ Steve Aoki and Indonesian DJ counterpart Angger Dimas. While Iggy’s bars are the only actual new vocals featured, I’m not as impressed with her verses as I was with her ‘Ignorant Art’ mixtape. Some of the single’s lines are catchy enough to be pushed as her debut mainstream single (“it’s a party on your face and I’m ’bout to dance on it”), and unfortunately, some aren’t (“you think I’m cool, then forget it, you feeling froggy then ribbit”) as memorable. The verses are unusually short for the standard rap format, instead relying on the pulsating beat’s knock to carry the overall cohesiveness of the song. Even though the overall lyrical content doesn’t compare to other current female artists today (see Kreay’s “Breakfast” verse), any solo performance from Iggy is much better than featuring every rapper from Atlanta on all her songs (as her upcoming EP ‘Glory’ will show). Either way, listen and download “Beat Down” below.
