Iggy Azalea performs on stage at the iHeartRadio Village in Las Vegas on Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014.

As we predicted just before Saturday Night Live's 40th season kicked off three weekends ago, Iggy Azalea is set to make her first appearance at Studio 8H on Oct. 25, the night Jim Carrey returns as host. It'll be more than a regular musical guest spot, though, as Iggy will debut her new single, "Beg For It," featuring Denmark's MØ. 

Last we'd heard, "Beg For It" was being positioned as a sort of sequel to "Fancy," one that would be built around the second collaboration between Iggy and British singer Charli XCX. Now the hook will come from Copenhagen instead, from Karen Marie Ørsted, who goes by MØ. (You say it like "moo.") 26-year-old MØ released her debut album, No Mythologies to Follow, earlier this year, featuring the single "Don't Wanna Dance":


Iggy Azalea recently did a live preview of "Beg For It," possibly when it still had the Charli XCX hook, in London. Check it out, if you feel like having mega "Fancy" déjà vu:

Until "Beg for It" is set free into the world, why not start speculating about what type of acting cameo Iggy will make? While Hozier didn't make it into this past week's batch of sketches, Ariana Grande appeared as super-princess She-Ra in the season 40 premiere, and Adam Levine made a quick appearance as Freddie Mercury during Maroon 5's turn as musical guest in week two. Iggy as Hilary Clinton rapping on the campaign trail?
