Azealia Banks Drops Two Versions of New Song “Escapades”
Azealia Banks is back with more new music. The Harlem native drops two mixes of her new song "Escapades from her upcoming mixtape Fantasea II: The Second Wave. The song, produced by Owwwls, is fantastic, showcasing Banks' elastic versatility while she sings over uptempo production.
"Build me, love me, lift me high/Relax my soul and ease my mind/More than lust, more than sex and love," she sings on the chorus.
Banks also tweeted that "Escapades" is what "was supposed to come" of her collaboration with Disclosure back around the time of her debut album Broke with Expensive Taste. In 2014, following the release of Broke with Expensive Taste, Banks did an interview with The Guardian and explained that she scrapped a recording session with Disclosure because they were "really rude in an interview, so I canned it."
Earlier this month, Banks dropped her fantastic record “Chi Chi” via her new record label Global Records, and last week she opened the door to possible reconciliation with longstanding rival Iggy Azalea.
There's no release date for Fantasea II: The Second Wave yet but hopefully it drops sometime this year. Listen to both mixes of "Escapades" below. The Harlem MC is letting fans make the song with her interactively.
