Watch Chilly Gonzalez Deconstruct Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" In His Latest Pop Music Masterclass

A few months back, Chilly Gonzales sat in front of his piano to deconstruct “Get Lucky” and “Hold On, We’re Going Home” for German radio station 1Live. He’s just given “Fancy” the same treatment and also gives the weirdest pronunciation of “Azalea” I’ve ever heard. “I’m not sure I ’like’ this song, but I am convinced it is a masterpiece in reduction. There’s just so little in this song.” (He means musically, but the way he talks, he probably doesn’t think much of the lyrics either.) He compares the song’s use of syncopation with Prince’s “When Doves Cry.” Watch the Masterclass below.
