Update: The music video for "Pretty Girls" has been released! Take a look and try not to roll your eyes (too much) below.
"All around the world pretty girls. Wipe the floor with all the boys. Pour the drinks, bring the noise. We're just so pretty!" There you have it: Four lines, plus a pop princess veteran, a hip-hop newcomer, and a catchy beat — all of which, undoubtedly, equals one serious summer jam. In under three minutes, Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea's new song, "Pretty Girls," will have you snapping, tapping, and dancing around in your chair — even in the stuffiest of offices. The highly anticipated single was officially released today, though much to Azalea's dismay, it was leaked over the weekend. The Australian rapper took to Twitter to get the facts straight and express her disappointment. "I happened to have noticed that pretty girls, my song with Britney Spears has leaked and is on some radio stations etc..." she tweeted. "I'm really really happy to see so many people loving it but I also just want to clarify it's not an 'early' release it's a leak and if you can...we would really appreciate everyone holding out until monday to share links if possible (I know it's hard, I'm excited too!)," she continued. Now that the release is official (the track is available on iTunes), she's all smiles. Azalea's had quite a busy year, performing alongside today's biggest artists most of the time. Between Charli XCX ("Fancy"), Rita Ora ("Black Widow"), Ariana Grande ("Problem"), and Jennifer Hudson ("Trouble"), it's clear she works best in a duo. Teaming up with Spears, however, is a new level. Since the '90s, Britney's been one of the best pop artists in the game — despite the breaks in-between — and it's exciting to see that generational gap bridged with an epic collaboration. Sure, the simplicity of the song is laughable, but good luck trying not to love it. Once the track gets stuck in your head, it's all over. Take a listen to the hot new single below. You'll thank us eventually.
Let the countdown to the music video begin. It'll be tough to top Iggy's video for her hit debut, "Fancy." All hail Clueless.
