Azealia Banks has some huge collaborations in her corner and she hasn’t even dropped an album yet. We already sort of knew that she had been in the studio with Kanye and that Gaga called her for work, but while on tour in Brazil the rapper/singer revealed a few details.
“Working with Kanye was a lot of fun,” she told the interviewer. “I just kind of went out to Hawaii for vacation, and he has a studio out there and he was just like, ‘You should really come to the studio,’ so I went to the studio and just worked it out.”
“I worked with Lady Gaga, but I worked with Lady Gaga from afar,” she continues. “We have a song called ‘Red Flame’ and we also have a song called ‘Ratchet,’ but I don’t know what she’s doing with it. She’s going to release it when she wants to release it.”
Lady Gaga on a song called “Ratchet.” Interesting.
Azealia has also become a new face for ASOS and their Holiday 2012 campaign. You can check out footage of that here and prepare for her debut album, Broke With Expensive Taste, in February.
