Azealia Banks confirms collaborations with Kanye and Lady Gaga
New York rapper Azealia Banks. Has confirmed she is working with Kayne West and Lady Gaga. Banks revealed all in an interview while in Brazil, "I worked with Lady Gaga, but I worked with Lady Gaga from afar," going on to confirm that they have made two tracks together; "We worked via email and via Internet. We have a song called 'Red Flame' and 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."
The sassy MC also explained how she ended up working with Kanye while on holiday; "I just kind of went out to Hawaii for vacation, and he has a studio out there," Banks said. "And he was just like, 'You should really come to the studio,' so I went to the studio and just worked it out."
Whether these tracks will feature on the highly anticipated debut from Banks, Broke With Expensive Taste which has seen its release delayed more than once already, who knows.
