I don't think I've ever seen Iggy perform 'Black Widow' without Rita. You know how a guest feature cannot always make every performance, so the lead artist performs it anyway via a backing track or a stand-in?
Rita has been at every single high profile performance gig with this song, which would have given her enough incentive to drop her new album at the back of the song's success and ongoing US promo. That's why she will never win. Wasted opportunities. Iggy also performed her other hit 'Fancy' and her new MØ-assisted single 'Beg for It' for the very first time, off her upcoming album reissue 'Reclassified', arriving November 24th.
