"Mo Bounce" is a song recorded by Australian rapper Iggy Azalea. It was released on 23 March 2017 and it debuted on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show.[3][4] It was produced by The Stereotypes and Far East Movement.[5]

The song was teased from the beginning of the month of March with various pictures posted on her social networks, some of them being GIFs.[6][2][7] The song was originally released as a second single from her then-forthcoming second studio album, then titled Digital Distortion, before being shelved and the album being scrapped.[8]

Critical reception[edit]

Lauren Tom from Billboard commented that "the upbeat tempo and the fun and loud lyrics mirror the happier-sounding track and perhaps her [Iggy's] life right now."[9] Claire Lobenfeld from Fact gave a negative review, calling the song "a blog house revival nightmare."[10] According to Hardeep Phull from New York Post, the song is "the best thing the 26-year-old has released since her glory days of 2014" and "ultra-catchy", also pointing out "it's the strong comeback she desperately needs."[11] "Mo Bounce" was among the Stereotypes's recognized body of work that secured their Producer of the Year, Non-Classical nomination at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.[12][13]

Music video[edit]

The music video was shot in Hong Kong by director Lil Internet in late February.[5] On 20 March 2017, Vevo announced the video would also be premiering on 24 March.[14] On March 21, Iggy Azalea posted a series of GIFs on her Twitter profile from the music video as she partnered with Giphy to release a promotional set.[7] There are multiple instances where young women are twerking, as well as Iggy doing so.[15][16] On March 22, Vevo released a 20-second video promoting Iggy Azalea's single.[17]

The official music video was released on 24 March 2017 on Vevo.[18][19][20][21][22][23]

In June 2018, the music video has received 60 million views on YouTube.
