Cover of The New Classic

From The New Classic and 1 other release

“Fancy” is a song by Australian recording artist Iggy Azalea from her debut studio album, The New Classic (2014). It features English singer-songwriter Charli XCX, and was released on February 17, 2014 by Island Records as the fourth single from the album.

In the United States, the song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming both Azalea’s and Charli XCX’s first number-one on that chart, holding the spot for seven consecutive weeks. “Fancy” also became XCX’s second top-ten single on the US Hot 100 after collaborating with Swedish synthpop duo Icona Pop on their single “I Love It”, which reached #7 in 2013.

“Fancy” is an electro-hop number that was written by Iggy Azalea, Charli XCX, Kurtis McKenzie, and the production team The Invisible Men, who also produced it, alongside The Arcade. The song is played in the key of C minor without any chord progression followed, and Charli XCX’s vocals range from G3 to C5. It is in common time and is played at a tempo of 94 beats per minute. Stabby synths, hip-hop chants, and finger snaps are heard in the original mix. Lyrically, the song is about being “the realest”, “bringing ‘88 back”, and ignoring “haters”, while Charli XCX brings some recklessness, threatening to trash the hotel and raid the minibar.

On 5 December 2013, an unfinished song by Azalea, which surfaced with the title “Leave It” was leaked online. Azalea later revealed the song was produced by The Invisible Men and The Arcade, whom she collaborated with on her entire album.
