Iggy Azalea Isn’t a Fan of Rita Ora’s Plan to Remake “Lady Marmalade”
Rita Ora has a huge goal. While currently working on a new solo album, her first commercially released project in the United States, she shared her dream that she's always wanted to remake a new version of "Lady Marmalade." The classic song was originally made by the group Labelle in 1975 and remade in 2001 by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya and Pink for the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack, becoming a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. for five weeks. For Rita's version, she would grab Miley Cyrus, Charli XCX and Iggy Azalea for the collaboration. "I'm trying to round up the troops - I think it would be me, Miley [Cyrus], Charli XCX - she'd be fun - and Iggy [Azalea]," Ora said.
But one of Ora's prospective collaborators isn't fond of the idea. Iggy was asked by a fan if she would remake "Lady Marmalade" and the former XXL Freshman stated the song should be left alone (see below).
There isn't a ton of information about it and it's still unclear if this was actually in motion. Iggy Azalea is gearing up to drop her sophomore album. Her new LP will be called Digital Distortion and is reportedly entirely produced by the production team D.R.U.G.S., the same group that was responsible for her 2012 mixtape Ignorant Art. Last year, the Australian MC released her debut album The New Classic.
