Leave it to a bluegrass band to completely transform a song about getting the ultimate revenge on your ex into a lighthearted, dancey jam. Forget about Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora wielding swords against bad guys, let’s have a “Black Widow” hoedown!
YouTubers the Gregory Brothers took on the dark-minded track (which Iggy and Rita will perform at the VMAs on Sunday — eek!), but changed its chords from minor to major and added mandolins and banjos. The result? Well, I’m ready to go to a barefoot barn party, if that’s a thing.
Watch it, and tell us what you think. And get stoked for Azalea and Ora’s “Black Widow” team-up at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday.
