Iggy Azalea reveals that Jidenna's "Classic Man" directly samples "Fancy".
"Classic Man" is yet another radio hit that owes something to DJ Mustard's chunky bass riffs, but unfortunately, it's not Dijon who'll be getting a check out of it. You may recall a similarly-borrowing single from last year, Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," and it turns out, Jidenna's hit is a direct sample of the song.
Azalea confirmed as much on Twitter, revealing that (as is standard procedure) she gets a percentage of the song's earnings.
This means that-- whether you knew it or not --you've been putting money in Iggy Azalea's pocket every time you play "Classic Man" on YouTube or Spotify. Check out her tweets below.
