After spending the last two years tweeting her way to irrelevance, Azealia Banks has given long-suffering fans reason for hope by sharing a video still from her new single “Heavy Metal And Reflective”, which is due on July 29. It will be her first release an independent artist after being dumped by her record label two weeks ago.
There’s not a lot known about the 23-year-old’s new direction apart from the fact that she thinks it’s good. “Heavy Metal and Reflective is so fun because on the track I sound like I’m 10ft tall and I look like a peanut in the video,” the femcee tweeted. In an earlier missive, she declared her new album to be “better than anything that’s out right now GOOD. You all will be SO glad you waited!” Time will tell if that’s true but it’s nice to be writing about Azealia’s music again instead of a yet another messy beef. See the rap diva’s tweets after the jump.
My album is so so so SOOO good. Like better than anything that's out right now GOOD. You all will be SO glad you waited!
