Azealia Banks Rides Solo in “The Big Big Beat” Video
During a Periscope session last week, Azealia Banks said that her video for "The Big Beat" was being delayed due to a distribution deal she was about to sign. Well, it appears that everything is worked out because the Harlem native dropped the clip for her Slay-Z track.
Moving through a building hallway wearing all black and blood red leather gloves, Banks dances seductively for the camera as her sex appeal jumps off the camera. From there, the controversial heads to downtown New York City where she changes wardrobe and dances on top of police cars and in front of court houses.
The oft-controversial artist is sitting on a healthy amount of music and in the same Periscope session where she explained the hold up for her music video, Banks revealed that she has two projects on the way and played music from both Business and Pleasure and Fantasea II. As far as a timeline for their release dates, Banks said that she will drop Fantasea II after touring this summer and Business and Pleasure next fall or winter.
Along with the album news, Banks also played a song that she claimed to have written for Rihanna. "“You wanna hear one of the songs I did for, what’s this bitch, antioxidant?” she said, poking fun at the pop star’s ANTI album title. After revealing that she co-produced the song with Hit-Boy, Banks raps along to the bass-heavy track. Later, she retweeted a SoundCloud link with the title, “Rihanna demo snippet.” Banks, of course, has not been shy about throwing shots at the superstar artist and recently criticized her “Work” video.
