“Black Window,” features Rita Ora on the hook, and is the fifth single from Iggy’s debut album, The New Classic, out Monday.
The song plays on the black widow spider’s predilection for sexual cannibalism, a behaviour in which the female eats the male after mating. But, did you know black widows are not the only species known to do this? I find this stuff so fascinating — I’ve been telling everyone about a special I saw that said that the praying mantis, jumping spider and scorpions are among a number of species that kill each other after sex.
