Azealia Banks Back to Releasing Music with ‘Heavy Metal and Reflective’: Listen
By Marissa G. Muller
After a two-and-a-half year contract with Universal and no proper album to show for it after its recent end, Azealia Banks might finally be getting closer to releasing her full-length debut Broke with Expensive Taste – or whatever she might be calling it now.
There’s nothing particularly heavy metal or reflective about the track, but it is a solid comeback for Banks. It has the same menacing feel of her early singles “212” and “Yung Rapunxel,” which isn’t coincidental — the latter song’s producer Lil Internet came up with the clapping, laser-streaked, bass-heavy beat for this track as well.
Lyrically, Banks doesn’t get too specific though the she does shout out the iconic ’90s digital toy Tamagotchi.
Last week, Banks teased the video for the track on her Instagram which takes on a different meaning of heavy metal and reflective with BMX bikes. Look for its release Aug. 5.
