Leaking and alternate versionsEdit
The song was originally leaked under the title "Leave It" and was composed without Charli XCX's hook, instead featuring an Azalea-rapped chorus. Additional lyrics include the title line "Tell me how you want it, I could leave it right there for you, eh". A few months after the leak, Azalea announced that she will be releasing her first single "Fancy" featuring Charli XCX soon. When it was released, it appeared that this song was the same as "Leave It" except with a Charli XCX chorus.
The music video, released on March 4th, 2014, is a homage to classic teen-film "Clueless" (1995). The video has over half a billion views on YouTube, making it one of the top viewed music videos of 2014.
