Iggy Azalea & Rita Ora’s “Black Widow” Sounds An Awful Lot Like Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse”: Listen

Iggy Azalea‘s Rita Ora collaboration, “Black Widow,” has hit the Web a few days before the April 22 release of The New Classic, and the first thing that jumped out at us? It sounds an awful lot like “Dark Horse!” Turns out that’s because it was co-written by none other than Katy Perry. The potential single has a similarly snappy, sparse trap beat and the refrain (which is presumably the part KP wrote) follows that song’s formula of a slow-build chorus that never quite bursts.

You know that phenomenon where a guest outraps the song’s primary MC? That’s sort of the case here, with Ora bodying the hook and outshining Iggy’s snarling, bitter verses — even that triple time bit. Hear the song below.

With her debut LP’s release finally around the corner, see what Iggy had to say about the benefits of all the album delays:
