Barack Obama Sings Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy”

“First things first, I’m the realest.” So says Iggy Azalea in “Fancy,” but turns out the line sounds way cooler when President Obama sings it. You can hear that and more in baracksdubs latest video, which has our beloved commander in chief cover the first few verses of this summer's biggest hit.

The video sorts and splices clips from various Obama speeches to make a very amusing cover, mostly because we get to hear the president implore us to “drop it low and pick it up” while he's “takin' all the liquor straight.” Enjoy.
