Azealia Banks Unveils ‘Heavy’ New Video


Late last night “212” rapper Azealia Banks released the video for her new single “Heavy Metal and Reflective.”

Azealia recently parted ways with Interscope/Polydore Records, but is still planning to release her debut album this year, assuring fans recently via Twitter that “Broke with Expensive Taste” will be more than worth the wait.

Reflecting on her album’s long delay in a recent interview with BuzzFeed, the Harlem rapper says she doesn’t feel like she lost time while waiting to be released from Interscope, saying “I feel like everything definitely happens for a reason.”

As for now being an independent artist, Azealia says the freedom is what enabled her to get the video for “Heavy Metal and Reflective” out so soon. “I had the concept in the mind and the director on tap. All I needed was the freedom to make it happens and once I got that freedom I was off and running.”

Check out the video below and let us know what you think.

Was Azealia worth the wait.


  1. I HOPE she gets a couple of hits, but her business is about the buzz, not social media beefs before you arrive, Anna Wintour, fashion designers wanting her, she should have stayed on that moving train, start-ups ain’t easy!

  2. I’ve only just heard of Azealia Banks, I’ve never heard her rap. Well after watching her recent video, I went on YouTube and watched all her videos. This young girl is so creative visually. She’s stunning, she looks like she could model. She raps and sings well and is a breath of fresh air. I will definitely be buying her album whenever it is released. Thanks brownsista for showing someone different. Variety is a must.
