Azealia Banks might be a handful, but she makes great music.
There's no denying Banks is talented, and her latest release titled "The Big Big Beat" is a prime example. Banks raps, sings and coos (ooh boy) in her latest release over a minimal fluttering electro beat that relies on her vocal talents versus cinematic production (thank you, Expresso). “You’ve been ’round the world looking for love in the strangest places, don’t you think it’s time you confess your love to me?” Banks sings. “Shining diamond, all of your facets, you’ve so many faces / Bet your evil smile’ll convince anyone who sees.”
Banks Tweeted and since deleted: "OK NOW SOMEBODY SIGN ME, I HAVE ANOTHER HIT THAT NEEDS TO BE ON THE RADIO, PLZ AND THANK YOU. SIGNED, -AN ANGRY BLACK WOMAN FROM NYC."
There's more to come... Banks is readying her new album SLAY-Z. It features eight songs and a bonus track from Fantasea II: The Second Wave. Listen to "The Big Big Beat" below:
If she can keep it together, she has a solid shot at inking a deal. Until then she'll have to rely on SoundCloud premieres.
