Iggy Azalea slams Rita Ora's idea of remaking 'Lady Marmalade'

MUMBAI: Rapper Iggy Azalea says she does not want to be involved in singer Rita Ora's planned remake of the popular number ‘Lady Marmalade’.

The rapper has blasted ‘The X Factor’ judge's idea of reworking Labelle's 1975 classic hit, which was later covered by Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mya and Pink in 2001, and agrees it “should be left alone”, reports

Azalea took to Twitter to voice her thoughts.

Her message on Twitter comes after Ora told The Sun newspaper that she was keen to “round up the troops” for a new version of the soul song.

She said, “I'm trying to round up the troops. I think it would be me, Miley (Cyrus), Charlie XCX - she'd be fun - and Iggy (Azalea).”

Ora’s idea of remaking ‘Lady Marmalade’ is very similar to the 2001 version, which also featured four female singers, including one rapper. The track was created as part of the soundtrack for the film ‘Moulin Rouge’, staring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor. It topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US for five weeks, and sold about 5.2 million copies.
