Iggy Azalea is undoubtedly one of the most controversial female rappers. After five years of absolute silence, Iggy is trying her best to come back to the music industry. According to Genius Lyrics, ‘Started’ is the first track off of Iggy Azalea’s sophomore studio album ‘In My Defence’ released on May 3, 2019. Let’s review the lyrics of the new Iggy Azelea single, Started.
According to Genius Lyrics, the new song by Iggy Azalea, Started, has manifested an unapologetic intro. Since Iggy is seen to have risen from a humble background, it is worth listening to her rapping about her wealth and fame. However, in the music video of the song ‘Started’, she gives a very odd vibe of inheriting the property of someone rich for her own personal benefits. Let’s talk about it in the music review of ‘Started’.
I started from the bottom and now I’m rich
I got in my bag and I ain’t looked back since
The chorus in the lyrics of ‘Started’ is enough to enlighten us about the main gist of the song. The chorus is about having an excess amount of wealth and falling in love with it. The vibe we get from the song isn’t very surreal since the song explicitly exposes the fact that the materialistic mentality isn’t friendly with society.
Let’s review the lyrics in the first verse of Started by Iggy Azalea.
You know that I’m the best, is that why you depressed?
Say you gettin’ a check, girl, you be frontin’ like breasts
In the first verse, Iggy Azalea targets mental health issues. Her opinion is most people around her are depressed since they don’t have the privilege of enjoying their wealth as she has. The comparisons laid out by people with Iggy Azalea as a prime subject of discussion have made them miserable since Iggy has the incomparable amount of wealth generated by her discography.
On the other hand, the strong credentials on the side of Iggy have helped her attract more wealthy people in their old ages than other people of her age. Since people compare Iggy’s ability to attract older men, they feel depressed since they aren’t able to find wealthy men like Iggy. The rapper then proceeds to claim that the depression of people around her will go away in a single blink of the eyes if someone wealthy calls them over so as to have a good time.
Do you hate that you love me or do you love that you hate me?
All you bitches be bitin’, I hope you don’t give me rabies
You can say what you want about me as long as you pay me
In the first part of the lyrics of the second verse of the song, Started, Iggy tries to show the self-conflicting interests of other people in her. She is confused by the unstable stance of other people towards her lifestyle and behavior. However, Iggy manages to escape the judgments as long as she is getting paid for the unwanted attention she’s been getting.
Yeah, my house is so big, I’m sittin’ on acres and acres
I have never seen my neighbors, no du-rag but Iggy wavy
Materialism is the biggest weapon for the rapper to justify her actions and opinions. Her possessions speak very highly of her. The mansion in which she’s been living in is secluded from the public’s eyes. Apparently, she is an antisocial extrovert. She doesn’t like any form of human interactions outside of her comfort zone, i.e. her mansion.
I know I’m fine, okay
Yeah, I’m a dime, okay
I cut him off if he ever get outta line, okay
Let’s review the lyrics in Bridge of Started by Iggy Azalea. The rapper keeps her well being on the top priority. Iggy is confident that she can do anything so as to keep her business running and keep her social status prominent. Azalea doesn’t stick with a single person as she is the type of person who is very hard to trust. She won’t think twice to cut off a good relationship if the things don’t go her way.
The song Started is unique and has got catchy elements in it. The chorus is upbeat and catchy, the bridge is sassy and cute, and in overall, the song is straight up fire. The beats are on point, the external noises are pitched down and all we get is pure beats with no distortions whatsoever. Even though the lyrics of the song are starving substantially, the song can be a good comeback for her. However, I’d rather prefer “Sally Walker” over this single.
The targeted age group of the song ‘Started’ is fourteen years to thirty years. The song manages to throw shade at Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, as well. We’ll have to wait and watch if Eminem will respond to her new single. But, we know his response beforehand, it’s not going to be pleasing for Iggy Azalea.
I give ‘Started’ by Iggy Azalea a light 06/10 in the Lyrics Review category. Good luck with your new album Iggy. You’re doing great so far.
