Azealia Banks Talks Lady Gaga & Kanye West Collaborations

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.

      I was just saying how ratchet is gonna be the new “ghetto” for white people. ex. “Oh my god you’re toaster doesn’t work properly. It’s so ratchet. *white girl sigh*”

  • CaramelHottie

    Yayyy go Azealia! I am so happy for all the success and exposure she’s getting because she’s dope! I cant wait for the track with her and Mother Monster, I’ll live! 

  • Steebie Jyay

    All three on a track would be interesting.

    I love how her collabs are with big stars. She not just jumping on a track with every Tom, dick and Harry. Nicki has a collaboration with everyone and none of them are memorable at all. I like Nicki but she has over-saturated herself. Azealia has young appeal and older appeal because she has bars and raps over beats everyone can get into. She will go far but that attitude she has will have to go.

      Well, to be fair..we haven’t heard much about Azealia in a while. I think she’s mellowing out some, and focusing more on her music. At least I hope so b/c that Fantasea mixtape was EVA-REE-THANG! 

  • serenissima

    Love Yung Rapunxel and it makes me soooo happy to see her shine! Gaga is pretty ratchet, too… In a Jersey Shore Italian kind of way… Y’all never saw her on that episode of ‘Boiling Points’ when she was just Stefani Germanotta? Ch…
