I don’t think there’s ever been a more Dazed sentence but: Azealia Banks has been in Elon Musk’s house alone for days, and she won’t leave until Grimes arrives and finishes a song for her new album Fantasea II: The Second Wave.
In July, the singer revealed that she has an incomplete track on the album with Grimes. “All the songs are finished except Lorelei and Grimes song,” she tweeted. “I have a session next week with Alex Carapetis to lock Lorelei down. Then I go to LA to finish grimes (...) daaaaaaaamn there’s some heat.”
It appears Grimes may have been a little harder to get hold of than she bargained for, so Azealia went via the natural route. She is parked at Grimes’ boyfriend’s house until she gets a glimpse of the pop auteur. “Literally been sitting at Elon Musk’s house alone for days waiting for @grimes to show up and start these sessions,” she revealed on Instagram stories. “I have no idea when she is coming back. I’m going to wait one more day then I’m going to go home.”
It’s been months since Azealia has been teasing new material, having released two anthemic tracks in the form of the euphoric dance track “Anna Wintour” and the love-sick bop that is “Treasure Island”.
Let’s hope she makes it out of the Bel Air mansion and into the studio some time soon before we get impatient waiting for the album, and before things get awkward and Musk starts ranting about Thai cave divers being paedophiles or something.
