Black Widow - Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora



The Experience: I loved you so much and now I just hate you
Feeling stupid for all the time that I gave you... Love can die - that's a tragedy. But love can also turn into hate, and that's the worst...




Music video: Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora embark on a fantasy quest to right every wrong they've received from one-time lovers turned jerks. It's just a daydream... but the problem is, life can be so much uglier when you open the door to hate - the black widow that he crushes only to have it come back to life and bite him at the end - and paint it like you're the hero when you're really just lashing out. Hate and revenge may feel great in your dreams, but in real life they leave you empty and bitter.

The Meaning of Black Widow: When you don't pick your relationships well, you can end up on the losing end of something empty, abusive and dysfunctional. Knowing that is one thing... experiencing it is another. Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora sing a tune that too many people are forced to dance to in real life. But there's a note to Black Widow that rings false: they glorify the revenge. And along the way, forget that what they were originally looking for was love.


Ask yourself: Does revenge solve problems? Does it empower you, or drag you even farther down?

LYRICS:

[Rita Ora]
I'm gonna love ya
Until you hate me
And I'm gonna show ya
What's really crazy
You should've known better
Than to mess with me, honey
I'm gonna love ya, I'm gonna love ya
Gonna love ya, gonna love ya
Like a black widow, baby

[Iggy Azalea]
This twisted cat and mouse game always starts the same
First we're both down to play then somehow you go astray
We went from nothing to something, liking to loving
It was us against the world and now we just f-cking
It's like I loved you so much and now I just hate you
Feeling stupid for all the time that I gave you
I wanted all or nothing for us ain't no place in between
Might, might be me believing what you say that you never mean
Like it'll last forever but now forever ain't as long
If it wasn't for you I wouldn't be stuck singing this song
You were different from my last but now you got it mirrored
And as it all plays out I see it couldn't be clearer
Now sing

[Rita Ora]
You used to be thirsty for me
But now you wanna be set free
This is the web, web that you weave
So baby now rest in peace (It's all over with now)

[Rita Ora]
I'm gonna love ya
Until you hate me (Right)
And I'm gonna show ya (Show 'em what show 'em what)
What's really crazy
You should've known better
Than to mess with me, honey (it's all over with now)
I'm gonna love ya, I'm gonna love ya
Gonna love ya, gonna love ya
Like a black widow, baby

Black, black widow, baby

[Iggy Azalea]
I'm gonna l-l-l-love you until it hurts
Just to get you I'm doing whatever works
You've never met nobody
That'll do you how I do ya
That will bring you to your knees
Praise Jesus hallelujah
I'm-a make you beg for it, plead for it
Till you feel like you breathe for it
Till you do any and everything for it
I want you to fiend for it
Wake up and dream for it
Till it's got you gasping for air
And you lean for it
'Till they have a CAT scan and check on your mind
And it's nothing but me, on it (on it, on it, on it)
Now it's me-time believe that
If it's yours when you want it
I wouldn't promise I need that
Till I'm everywhere that you be at
I can't fall back go quick
Cause this here a fatal attraction so I take it all or I don't want sh-t

[Rita Ora]
You used to be thirsty for me (Right)
But now you wanna be set free
This is the web, web that you weave
So baby now rest in peace (It's all over with now)

[Rita Ora]
I'm gonna love ya
Until you hate me (Right)
And I'm gonna show ya (Show 'em what show 'em what)
What's really crazy
You should've known better
Than to mess with me, honey
I'm gonna love ya, I'm gonna love ya
Gonna love ya, gonna love ya
Like a black widow, baby

Bl-bl-bla-black widow, baby
