New Music: “US”, Azealia Banks…
As Azealia Banks makes us wait for the release of her anticipated new EP 1991, it’s nice to hear new stuff pop up from her in the meantime.
A few months back, an unfinished version of Azealia’s extra-cocky track “US” appeared online. It flew under the radar, and she left it out of her Coachella sets. But now the mastered version has come out, and it’s special because this might be the last time for a while that we get to hear a track from Azealia’s lo-fi days.
Since signing her new management deal with Lady Gaga’s manager Troy Carter, Azealia says she’ll be putting out higher-quality material from now on. She tweeted, “No more ghetto mixes and closet recording.. I have a budget now!”
But “US” was definitely one of those do-it-yourself productions, probably made in the bedroom. While singing on the track, Azealia shows that wordplay is her specialty by rapping about jealous chicks and having to watch out for suspect dudes. (Listen at Necole Bitchie…)
