Many will recognize the sample that has been used as it’s “Mambo Italiano” originally sung by Rosemary Clooney and the Mellomen. This release follows up Iggy Azalea’s official second studio album In My Defense, and Alice Chater’s single “Tonight”.
The epic video, which finds Iggy and her fellow blonde bombshell Alice in a psych ward while nurses tend to them. They turn the white halls into a runway, lay in bathtubs filled with pills, and prance around their padded cells in green gowns. Written by Alice Chater, Amythest Kelly, A. Cygnaues, D. Gavin, Dhani Lennevald, and Kee Ingrosso, “Lola” is also produced by Carl Falk and J. White Did It. The music video which accompanies the song has been directed by Iggy Azalea and Thom Kerr, it also stars Thelma Gudmunds as one of the nurses.
Iggy Azalea, real name Amethyst Kelly, is an Australian hip-hop artist, who really started at the bottom and has now really earned her place in the rap music industry and she continues to prove herself time and time again. She’s had a bunch of various hits, namely “Fancy” featuring Charli XCX, “Black Widow” featuring Rita Ora, as well as featuring on Ariana Grande’s “Problem”. She’s one of these acts that keep us all guessing, unsure of which path she’s following, and so she creates her own path when it comes to music. She is now an independent artist, releasing the music she wants. She finally released her sophomore album In My Defense, which spawned the singles, “Sally Walker”, “Started”, instant grat single “Just Wanna”, and “F**k It Up” featuring Kash Doll. The album is totally epic, but that is no surprise since she had originally planned to drop Digital Distortion as her second studio album, but it got cancelled – so the five-year wait was totally worth it. She had planned to re-issue the album with her new releases, but her new music went in a different direction, so this new single “Lola” is the first single from her newly released EP, titled Wicked Lips.
As for Alice Chater, she is a rising British pop artist who is one of the ones to watch in the coming years. She launched onto the music scene with covers including Mariah Carey’s “Vision of Love” and Madonna’s “Hung Up”. 2018 saw her release original song “Girls X Boys” leading on to fantastic singles “Heartbreak Hotel”, “Hourglass”, “Wonderland (My Name Is Alice)”, “Thief”, and “Tonight”. Her most-streamed song on Spotify is her feature on the Professor Green song “Got It All”. She’s been busy working with some of the biggest names in the industry such as will.i.am, Rami Yacoub, Carl Falk, and Bonnie McKee and is well on her way to becoming a household name.
