Black Widow as a Piano Piece The gritty "Black Widow" pop song by Rita
Ora and Iggy Azalea is the new smash song today. In addition to the
sinister lyrics; the energetic melody and mysterious chords give the
song edge and grit. Any individual who would even try to make this song
beautiful will definitely have a difficult time. Also, it seems like it
would not be possible to play this song on piano.

Possibilities are it wouldn't sound great. You can't really play rap song as a piano instrumental, so there is the problem of playing Iggy Azalea's part. It would also be too edgy for a piano instrumental. Since everything is possible then maybe transforming this song into a piano instrumental could be possible too.
The rap part of Iggy Azalea can be redone by simply playing over the synth background riff. It can actually sound really good if the lower registers of the piano is played for the gloomy chords. Rita Ora's part is easy to transfer to a piano piece, and since there is a lot of gaps between the phrases you can even play the background riff in between the melody line. For the accompaniment, there are many various things you could check out. In order to follow up that gritty bass note with a softer mid range configuration, jump bass can work very well. To be able to acquire a soft yet enigmatic effect you can arpeggiate the chords. If you would like a thicker texture you can even play block chords and just follow the bass drum pace for the pattern.

Blending various approaches for different intensity levels can be really good for the melody line. Like for instance, you can just play solitary notes for the introduction. Now when it comes to the stanza, you can pick up the intensity a little by adding a harmony note with the right hand. In order to actually produce the huge effect, you can play in octaves or full chords for the chorus. In conclusion, while it may seem weird for several rap songs like Black Widow to be played on piano, they still sound great.
