A staple among nightclub belters. Rigid, ballsy, in-your-face and a beautifully intense and vulgar compilation of swears, sex and empowerment slapped onto an energetic pump of a track that not only commands but forces you to your feet to jump around to this track in a ballsy dare to make you learn the lyrics while you're at it.

Filthy and in-your-face. It would be a charming and fun song if I'd heard it when it first came out. Then I wouldn't have current-day Azealia Banks in mind the whole time.

It's more than just a woman shouting through a EDM beat. But let's address the beat first - Lazy Jay has stayed relatively anonymous since "212" but this beat is a shape-shifting palate of captivating club DJ sets. Banks' lyrics bounce off the beat in all the perfect places here, and her flow paves new ground in the discussion of "talk-rap". It's still her most compelling single, because of its blunt, kiss-off nature.
