Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora's new collaboration 'Black Widow' has surfaced online a few days before the release of Azalea's album The New Classic. Listen to it below.

The song, which was produced by Benny Blanco and Stargate, sees British singer Rita Ora perform the chorus alongside Azalea's rap verses.

With its slow build to a climax that never quite arrives, many publications have been quick to point out the similarities between 'Black Widow' and Katy Perry's recent hit 'Dark Horse.' In fact, Perry co-wrote the song, and was clearly keen to repeat her tried-and-tested formula.

Azalea's debut album The New Classic suffered months of postponement before an official release date was finally settled upon. The album features previously aired singles 'Work', 'Bounce', 'Change Your Life' and Charli XCX collaboration 'Fancy, as well as guest slots from TI, Watch The Duck, and, of course, Rita Ora.

The New Classic is set to be released on Monday (21 April).
