Hot 97 debuted the studio version of Azealia Banks‘ second official single, “ATM Jam,” just two days after Banks performed a snippet live at Glastonbury. While Banks had unveiled its earworm of a hook and confident two verses, the radio station introduced its listeners to the song’s heated breakdown.
“ATM Jam” is tailor-made for ass-shaking. To its popping hi-hat rhythm, Pharrell repeatedly insists, “I got racks racks racks on the ATM jam, tell me whatcha wanna do.” During the breakdown though, blasting synths fire and Pharrell sings almost deadpan, “There’s shooting in the parking lot, everyone get low / There’s shooting in the parking lot, anywhere you wanna go.”
The Broke with Expensive Taste track gets serious, but only for a minute — and without missing a beat. Hear the song after the jump.
