Iggy Azalea has hit back at 'blackfishing' claims which have dogged her new video.

Out now, new single 'I Am The Stripclub' comes backed with a 'luxe video, which features the Australian artist donning a dark wig, alongside a number of different outfits.

Social media users have criticised her skin tone – seemingly darker than normal – and Iggy's lifting of tropes from Black culture.

Hitting back, Iggy Azalea said she was using the same make up as for previous videos, but her skin tone seemed darker due to the shoot.

Speaking to a fan, she called the accusations "ridiculous and baseless."

In a final message, she thanked fans for their support, and haters for "helping me promote".

The video can be found below.
