Both stars have also posted other messages and pictures related to "Black Widow," not just on Twitter, but also on the popular image sharing site Instagram.

The single with "Fifty Shades of Grey" star Rita Ora is part of Iggy's album "The New Classic." Hot New Hip Hop also reported that the music video for Iggy and Rita's collaboration will be crazy and will include familiar faces and various characters. The "Fancy" artist who has gone under fire for reportedly using ghostwriters to write her songs, can be heard rapping in "Black Widow" as Ora sings the chorus of the song.

"Black Widow" is a single about how black widow spiders are similar to the ladies' way of dealing with heartbreaking splits involving their lovers. Black widow spiders which are also called hourglass spiders or shoe-button spiders are notorious in the animal kingdom because the female arachnids eat the males after mating with them.
Now that Iggy Azalea has officially released "Black Widow" with "Fifty Shades of Grey" star Rita Ora after the controversial Nicki Minaj speech at the 2014 BET Awards, the spotlight is now back on at their respective music careers. It looks like Iggy has benefitted from the whole drama with Minaj because it gave her some publicity which helped people notice her and pay attention to her songs.
