Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson Get in ‘Trouble’

Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson play a game of cops and robbers in the video for their single “Trouble.”

Earlier this month, Hudson talked to Billboard about working with Iggy Azelea. “I was just like, ‘Wow she wants me to do a record with her? Great, let’s do it!'” said Hudson. “It’s such an interesting combination that I think is very unexpected in a way. You know, for us both, which ended up working out pretty damn well.”

“Trouble” is featured on the Reclassified deluxe edition of Azalea’s The New Classic album, which was released last November.
