Million Dollar Dream - Iggy Azalea ft. Sukhwinder Singh

 
by Simon Cleary 

The Experience: Iggy joins her rap with Sukhwinder Singh's punjabish Indian sound (you might remember his songs from the film Slumdog Millionaire). The idea is surprising, and the result is surprisingly good. 
Official Video: Lyrics from the song spliced in with clips from the movie Million Dollar Arm.

The meaning of Iggy Azalea's Million Dollar Dream is about hope. Disney's Million Dollar Arm takes a Rinku Singh from an Indian cricket bowler (that's what they call their pitchers) to a MLB baseball pitcher in the Pittsburgh Pirates. (That's the meaning of the lines "Spinning bowls good enough to bring the winnings home, now the top of the mound is what we sitting on!") What began like an  illusion of success has changed, "the goal ain't as far as it seems!" Any dream is possible if you "give it all for the dream!"
Find the dreams that mean something to you. Then fight for them. Don't get distracted. "Everything that mean something is what we came for." You can have a million-dollar dream yourself.

Ask Yourself: What is my Million Dollar Dream? Do I give it all for the dream? (or have I settled for less?) 


LYRICS:
I give it all for the dream
I give it all for the dream
I give it all for the dream
I give it all for the dream

I give it all for the dream
Cause the goal ain't as far as it seems
I got this million dollar arm
Throwing everything I got into this million dollar dream
Into this million dollar dream
Into this, into this million dollar dream
Live and direct fresh out the jet
My bet is y'all ain't seen nothing like this yet
Confident walk, it's success when I step
You'll probably never see this again, don't hold your breath

I give it all for the dream
I give it all for the dream
I give it all for the dream
I give it all for the dream

Spinning bowls good enough to bring the winnings home
Now the top of the mound is what we sitting on
Balling like we supposed to
The level that we sitting in now ain't nobody close to
Everything that mean something is what we came for
I'm going home with it all, that's how the game go
I'm on the way to the top, I know the way to go
We just want the world while it's spinning
That's what we playing for
Nothing new here so what I gotta do here?
I like it, I love it, I just might bring the whole crew here
Stay for two years and get to acting like I grew here
Next thing you know, you look up, I ...
Everything that mean something is what we came for
I'm going home with it all, that's how the game go
I'm on the way to the top, I know the way to go
We just want the world while it's spinning
That's what we playing for

I give it all for the dream
I give it all for the dream
I give it all for the dream
I give it all for the dream
