Iggy Azalea, the 33-year-old Australian rapper, has released a new music video titled “Money Come” where she boldly challenges traditional gender norms. In this empowering visual narrative, she collaborates with other powerful women to take control of a corporate office, transforming the male employees into their source of amusement.
Breaking Down Barriers in “Money Come”
The music video, which was unveiled on Friday (Aug. 25), begins with Iggy Azalea and her crew storming into an office space and making their way into a meeting room. In a surprising turn of events, she fires a laser at the man presiding over the meeting, turning him into a woman. Following suit, the rest of the men in the room are also transformed into women. The triumphant ladies then proceed to the main office area, which quickly descends into pandemonium.

The men’s futile attempts to escape only lead to them experiencing the same fate as their colleagues from the meeting room. Further into the video, we see the audacious Iggy Azalea riding a man like a horse, using his necktie as reins. Another scene features the women hurling dollar bills at two men wrestling in a kiddie pool filled with mud. The video portrays a powerful message of women’s corporate takeover.
A Sensual Twist in “Money Come”
The track released by Iggy Azalea on the same Friday takes on a sensual tone as she raps, “He wanna stick it in my body like voodoo/ Cause the money make the kitty go who-who.” The chorus features a call-and-response with background vocalists, emphasizing her desire to accumulate wealth, which she finds enticing. “Come baby, come baby, money make me come/ Come baby, come baby, money make her come/ Keep my name out your mouth if you can’t give me some,” they sing in unison.
The Return of the “Fancy” Artist
“Money Come” is Iggy Azalea’s first solo release since her August 2021 LP, The End Of An Era. Despite not being as musically active, she continues to be a hot topic, partly due to her public support for Tory Lanez, the Canadian rapper recently convicted.
Iggy Azalea’s Support for Tory Lanez
Iggy Azalea submitted a three-page letter expressing her support for Tory Lanez, who was involved in a shooting incident in July 2020. In her letter, she adamantly states, “I must make note of the things [I’ve] suffered through so that you understand definitively: I would not write to you on behalf of an abuser.” She goes on to commend Lanez’s character, stating she has never seen him lose his temper or disrespect a woman. She categorically states that she refuses to believe he could act maliciously, especially towards a woman.
Meghann Cuniff, the Legal Affairs And Trials reporter who covered his December 2022 trial and August sentencing, provides a thorough analysis of the full letter above.
In conclusion, Iggy Azalea’s new music video, “Money Come,” is a bold statement of female empowerment and defiance against traditional gender norms. It’s a testament to her unique approach to expressing her personality and beliefs through her music. As she continues to make waves in the music industry, one can only anticipate what she will do next.
