25 June 2014 - Ariana Grande (feat. Iggy Azalea) - Problem

I swear, Iggy Iggs is going to be a Hall of Famer in a hurry!

 But let's not focus on how this song is part of history - as Iggy Azalea's first two singles to chart are at #1 (the long-ago featured "Fancy") and #2 (this) , the first artist to do that since The damn Beatles! - but instead on the topline artist, who I have been meaning to write about for a very long time.  Indeed, Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande - a performer of several fun pop songs - is probably the most unjustly ignored artist on this blog.

Well, our ignorance ends today, and it ends with some funky saxophone blasts!

Let me assure you that a lot of other artists want to work with Iggy now. Stay tuned.


  1. I swear I don't understand this at all...this song or all the Iggy hype.

    This song screams "extremely forgettable summer 'anthem'".

    And Iggy's rapping is about as bland and un-engaging as most of the other lousy rap out there. I mean, are we supposed to get all excited just because she's a white woman who's rap doesn't end up like this: http://dangerousminds.net/comments/kids_perform_weezer_song_at_schools_recital_it_goes_all_wrong

    1. Greg, I am a big fan of Iggy, and I have been for some time. I don't find most of her stuff bland at all. She is the product of her influences - T.I., Nas, Tupac Shakur - to be sure, but she exceeds them in her own writing. I know not everyone is a fan (including the co-writer of this blog), but I am.

      I get your feelings on this song. I just see it differently.

      And now, I think I need to post some of Iggy's..... different work.
