It may enjoy a peak position of #28 on the ‘Billboard Hot 100’, but ‘Beg For It‘ – the infectious Pop bop by Iggy Azalea– will not receive a supporting music video, it has emerged this week.

Surprising news below…

‘American Cool’ creative David LaChapelle had been sought out to direct the visual, set to serve as the first promotional visual shot for Azalea’s latest body of work, ‘Reclassified.

Unfortunately, said plans were scrapped. Why?

‘Music Times’ reports:

According to Azalea, her schedule and the constant Jingle Ball concerts clogged up her time, and she was unable to shoot a video due to poor planning.

But fans of Azalea need not worry too much – she isn’t scrapping promotions for Reclassified totally. She’s prepping her next single, “Trouble” featuring Jennifer Hudson as her next promotional track.

“gotta move to trouble jingleball made it incredibly hard to do anything else this month. it seems like i missed the window,” Azalea wrote to Twitter fan @QuintaleAzalea.

 

Pulled from the aforementioned ‘Reclassified‘, ‘Beg’ has moved an impressive 401,473 units without a music video, pushed by live performances delivered to ‘Saturday Night Live‘, the ‘American Music Awards‘ and consistent support from Top 40 radio.

      • Rapper_Eve_D_Best December 28, 2014

  2. Indie December 28, 2014

    B**** please, she probably had a black guy in the video begin her for it, but with all the controversy over her racist remarks in her earlier recordings it wouldn’t go down well, so better to get a video out there with J Hud to save face! Perfect timing!

  3. Molly December 28, 2014

    Thats too bad

  4. Charlieyoncé December 28, 2014

    Reclassiflopped was so much of a failure it drained the power out of her to shoot a video for Beg for It. #SlayingAintEasy

  5. Beysus December 28, 2014

    *sips tea* *plays BWET*

    • rita ora December 28, 2014

      HOW many copes has BWET sold?

      • Beysus December 28, 2014

        Does Rita have a new nickname other than “Rihanna’s Understudy”???

  6. G4L December 28, 2014

    Smart move.
    Get those ‘im not racist- I have a black friend!’ Sales from the JHud collab!

  7. DanYiel Teflon December 28, 2014

    WOW! that is good numbers, How much has Chasing time from that black rapper sold?

    • Nicki Will Slay December 28, 2014

      Why are y’all so jealous of black rappers?
      Why y’all mad that Iggy can’t sell albums like JCole, Nicki, Drake, Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, legend Lauryn, and Jayz.
      Why y’all mad b/c the biggest white rapper in America dissed her in a track while praising Nicki?
      Even Eminem knows how wack she is. lol
      Why can’t IGG sell albums tho????????

    • LOL December 28, 2014

      LOL WHY CAN’T FLOPZALEA SELL 200K IN ONE WEEK LIKE THAT OTHER BLACK RAPPER? LOL

      • Rosie December 28, 2014

        Except the other black rapper didn’t sell 200K in a week.

      • Fancy BISH December 28, 2014

        Clock ha, Rosie 😉 #FlawlessRead

      • LOL December 28, 2014

        LOL AND NEITHER DID ULTRANONEXISTENCE LOL

  9. Xtina Warrior December 28, 2014

    That sucks if she had a video the song easily would’ve made top 10

  10. Kitty Puurrzz December 28, 2014

    Very stupid decision on Her behalf. I think it has something to do with that MO girl. I notice after the SNL performance when she caught so much flack from Her performance she stopped cooperating with the single….

  11. DEL BEY December 28, 2014

    the song is seriously wack and generic, and to the commentator above, BWET sold 11k and the reclassified sold 11k, the difference is one has no label or promotion and the other has the entire industry machine and a smash hit behind her, do that math at who profits more

    • rita ora December 28, 2014

      BWET SOLD 11K, 30K in total

      TNC SOLD 450K IN THE USA

      DONT TRY IT.

    • rita ora December 28, 2014

      • Nicki Will Slay December 28, 2014

        Weak.
        This girl is getting all the promo dollars from Def Jam and still can’t go gold.
        JCole is already gold.
        Nicki will be gold in several weeks.
        I almost feel sad for Iggy FLOP.

    • Rima December 28, 2014

      Worry about why The New Classic outsold Ultraviolence in the states.

      • Nicki Will Slay December 28, 2014

        LMAO. Niether one of those chicks can sell albums in the U.S. SMH

      • Nicki Will Slay December 28, 2014

        * Neither

      • Prismatic December 28, 2014

        And Nicki cant sell outside of the US her tour is gonna flop so badly tisk tisk

      • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* December 28, 2014

        You’re such an uninformed homo- ULTRAVIOLENCE has sold over a million copies so you really need to s*** up.

      • Rosie December 28, 2014

        And is Beak To Beak at 850K worldwide yet with all that promo? Literally every single one of this f** Rima’s comments mention Lana in some way. The obsession is so real.

    • Prismatic December 28, 2014

      But when will Lana become interscope’s golden girl?

  12. Rima December 28, 2014

    The song deserves a video

  13. Rima December 28, 2014

    • Fancy BISH December 28, 2014

      You must be talking about The Sinkprint 😉

  21. Rapper_Eve_D_Best December 28, 2014

    It’s funny when you come and shade iggy when Nicki minaj is struggling too. Y’all need to leave the white girl alone. Y’all mad coz a white girl winning in hip hop?

    • BeyxMaraj December 28, 2014

      Are you mad coz Eve ain’t winning in anything??? Lool Cliiiing biatch!!!

      • Rapper_Eve_D_Best December 28, 2014

        Biatch, lemme educate yo ass. Legendary Eve won a Grammy Award for”Let Me Blow Your Mind”.and peaked at number one in Top 40 and Hip hop charts. It made a history and give way for new comer like Nicki minaj, banks etc. You don’t f*** around with the legend. Nicki minaj singles will be forgotten but Eve s single is classic bish

    • nicko December 28, 2014

      Nicki is currently outselling n outcharting iggy. Nic isnt struggling, her album just sold 244k, she has had several hits this yr, broke several records while igloo is struggling to go gold.

      • CATFISH CAREY December 29, 2014

        HER ALBUM DIDNT SELL 244K SHE SOLD 194K
        KEEP CLINGING TO THOSE STREAMING RECIPETS FOR DEAR LIFE

  22. Rosie December 28, 2014

    So funny how all these haters are perched in here.
    Also, to Lana’s #1 Fan Rima, of course TNC should’ve outsold UV when it had two top 10 hits and was released four months beforehand. You forgot to mention with all those promo spots and hits, UV is only ~10K copies behind it and will outsell it within the next few weeks.

  23. FutureCIARA December 28, 2014

    I hope Jennifer isn’t hollering in this video. And I wonder what it will do for her career…

  24. Bella3 December 28, 2014

    People always say she blow up by being white acting black but all her Urban songs failed & it wasn’t until she came out with Fancy witch is a Pop song & made the video off of Clueless witch is a Pop culture movie & then came out with BlackWidow witch is also a Pop song that she became a star so in all Realness it was her selling Pop music not Hip hop that made her a hit. And now because of all the hate she has from Hiphop she’s coming out with Trouble ft J-HUD a R&B cut that I dont think she wanted to come out with hoping to be like Bruno Mars but people want Pop from Iggy so she should come out with Heavy Crowns ft Ellie Golding witch is a Pop song that would put her back in the World of Pop because trying to get Hip hop to like her with this new song will destroy her career.

    • musicMatters101 December 28, 2014

      Which*** not the creepy old lady with a wart on her nose = witch FYI

      [But I agree, not genre based, but “HC” should be the single, and not “T”]

  25. nicko December 28, 2014

    Rapper_Eve_da_best is so pressed, lmao. Nic has been winning since 09, has outsold all of ur fav female rappers n she is currently outselling igloo aka the new “queen of rap” with HIP HOP music lmaoo. I can’t. Thats probably why ure mad. Its ok for Igloo to sell 30k n 50k first week after all the promo she had: radio deals, performances,pop songs but u call Nic a flop for selling 248k first week (which ur fav cant do ) ?

  26. nicko December 28, 2014

    How is Only, a HIP HOP song outselling beg for hits ? Why r TPP first week sales higher than BWET+Liplock+TNC+Reflopified+dirty gold first week sales combined ? I need answers.

    • Fancy BISH December 28, 2014

      You might be a little slow…the article reads Iggy scrapped her video for Beg For It…had she released the damn video, Beg For It would be selling even better than it is now…oh, and don’t forget to add The Re-Up to your little list boo boo…I know ya’ll try to forget that happened lol 😉

      • nicko December 28, 2014

        The Re Up wasnt an album tho, Reflopified was.

  27. TheElusiveLamb December 28, 2014

    She should move on to the next album. It’s more embarrassing to linger on in a failing project, than it is to just move on and have a successor.

    • Fancy BISH December 28, 2014

      Mariah’s certainly doing that, now isn’t she? lol, I LOVE Mariah by the way 😉 #Butterfly #Daydream

      • TheElusiveLamb December 29, 2014

        Mariah is certainly doing more than 11k. 🙂

  28. The_Famous_Ciara December 28, 2014

    Just thinking how much Liplock sold in US
