Azealia Banks Unleashes Empowering New Song “Movin’ On Up”
Azealia Banks returns with a brand new song called "Movin' On Up," which is sure to get listeners on their feet to dance. The new electronic-infused record from the Harlem native serves as an empowering anthem for the ladies.
"Movin' On Up" is slated to be featured on her forthcoming project, Fantasea 2: The Second Wave, but Banks says that it was originally intended to be part of the movie, Love Beats Rhymes, which she stars in as the lead character, CoCo.
On the record, the female entertainer leads with some empowering lyrics, encouraging women to embrace who they are to the fullest.
"All I want is to live in this world/Express my femininity/Love myself more," she rhymes. "And be free to explore my sexuality/All the girls if you're feelin' me/Find your bliss, spread your wings, live your life."
In a new Instagram post, the Entertainment One signee claims that the song was going to be the big finale in the movie from last year, which was directed by RZA. Banks once again calls out the Wu-Tang Clan founder for not putting together a proper soundtrack for the film, despite having musical actors in the film such as her, Jill Scott and Common. She even mentions the Russell Crowe incident that took place between her and him at a party in Los Angeles.
"This would have sold the movie soooooo much harder. I’m still down to shoot an additional ending and finally give this movie a soundtrack," she writes. "Coco deserves it she’s such a sweet girl. Have no clue how rza couldn’t forge a soundtrack whilst having myself common AND jill Scott in cast. Legendary producer MY ASS! Im better than the veterans. A dope soundtrack would have had this movie in the SKY."
