Azealia Banks drops new track ‘The Big Big Beat’

The single is reportedly taken from the singer’s first release since her 2014 debut album

While Azealia Banks may seem ever-present on our social feeds, (see her latest endorsement of Donald Trump as proof), an occurrence far less frequent than the singer engaging in Twitter beef is news of a new beat. But after little word of new music since the singer’s long awaited debut album “Broke With Expensive Taste” dropped in late 2014, Banks has released a brand new track entitled “The Big Big Beat”, via Soundcloud.

The offering sees Banks’ share softer vocals than previous releases – captioning the song with featuring lyrics, “you’ve been round the world looking for love in the strangest places, don’t you think it’s time you confess your love to me.”

After allegedly being blocked from releasing new music, “The Big Big Beat” is taken from Banks’ upcoming mixtape entitled “Slay Z”. Originally planned as an homage to Jay Z, Banks’ teased a reworked track listing on Twitter late last week. In addition to the impending release, calling BS on white feminists and blasting Beyoncé critics, Banks is also said to be working a follow up to her 2012 mixtape “Fantasea”, appropriately named “Fantasea II”.
