Iggy Azalea told fans this that track is particularly 'important' to her
Iggy Azalea has high hopes for “I Am the Stripclub,” asking fans to support her however they can. “I really want this video to trend you guys! I was bummed last time, but this time we will get it!” she tweeted after dropping the track’s official music video. “This song is important to me.” The rapper’s “bummed” comment is likely referring her previous single “Sip It” with Tyga, which she claims YouTube failed to promote because it was too explicit. At the time, Azalea said she was “really disappointed because I’m indie and I depend on things like that for streaming.”

She also revealed the real meaning behind the track, clarifying via Twitter that it’s not “literally about the strip club, it just means, hey I’m a realllllly f***in good time.” This is illustrated in the hook, as she raps: “Don’t need dark rooms / I am the stripclub / Don’t need red lights / I am the stripclub.” She even shouts out Ginuwine’s “Pony”: “Swear he Ginuwine trynna ride the pony.”
As for her favorite lyric… “”D**k magnet, who’s askin?'” Azalea revealed. “‘Cause I had drunk a few glasses of wine in the studio writing that verse and I couldn’t even say it to the room without laughing.”
