Reviews of the new songs from Iggy Azalea Feat. Rita Ora and Jenny Lewis

Posted on

Iggy Azalea Feat. Rita Ora, ”Black Widow”
This is no ”Fancy.” Over a basic, Soulja Boy-style beat, Azalea raps about a waste-of-time boyfriend and Ora threatens him mildly: ”I’m gonna show ya what’s really crazy.” What is it, a hedgehog riding a skateboard? Whatever it is, it’s not crazy enough. BMelissa Maerz

Jenny Lewis, ”Just One of the Guys”
Attention, dudes: If you’re scared off by a woman singing lines like ”There’s a little clock inside that keeps ticking” and ”I’m just another lady without a baby,” then Jenny Lewis doesn’t have time to waste on you anyhow. With a production assist from Beck, the former Rilo Kiley chanteuse repurposes all her last-call exasperations and insecurities into a lovely, wistful gem of a song that makes isolation sound inviting. A-Ray Rahman
