5 Reasons why Iggy Azalea’s ‘Beg For It’ is our new anthem

Iggy Azalea has done it again: Her new song, “Beg For It,” is without a doubt the song we’re bouncing to all weekend. Gather up your girls, throw down your purses and get your swerve on.

Shhhhhhhhoot. We had the best of intentions of staying in this weekend, devouring pumpkin spice everything and watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix. Azalea is ruining all of our laid-back plans, though, in favor of something much more fun: time dancing with the girls. We’re putting on our spandex and glitter, adding a few more layers of mascara and hitting the club. So what if we’re 30? We want to live in this track all weekend.

Need proof that “Beg For It” is meant for girl time and promotes girl power? Just take a closer look at the lyrics.

“Pulled up looking picture perfect, baby
High price, but I’m worth it, baby”

There’s hitting the bar in this afternoon’s jeans but a fresh shirt. Then there’s rolling up in a brand-new too-short dress. In one instance, we’re happy for a dude willing to buy us a Stella. Tonight, though, don’t even look at us unless you’ve got bottle service.

“I know you like the way I turn it on
I’m out here with my friends
Imma make you beg, Imma make you beg for it”

Is there anything more satisfying than standing in a circle with your friends and dancing your asses off? The dance floor is full of judging girls and obnoxious drunks. But your forcefield of friendship in impenetrable.

This. This might be the ultimate modern update to the somewhat tired and overplayed “Girl Power.” And when we hear it, all we can think is…

“You can look, boy, but don’t you touch
If you want my love, make me give a f***
Make you beg for it, Imma make you beg for it”

OK, OK. We get it. Sex is a two-way street. We want it just as bad as most dudes do, so holding out only makes us wait for it, too. Still. Sometimes we need a dude who will work for it. We need to feel like we’re worth the effort. And, more importantly, we need to know the guy is worth our time.

What?! Was that a Nortorious B.I.G. reference? Oh, yes it was! Hello, again, sixth grade. It’s been so long.
