New York rapper Azealia Banks isn’t sweating over becoming an independent artist following a record label dispute and has announced plans to release new music later this month.
According to reports, Banks has a new record called “Heavy Metal and Reflective” coming together.
Touting that she is now a truly independent rapper and #freeagent on her Twitter, Banks announced the single title in a simple message on July 18: “‘HEAVY METAL AND REFELCTIVE’ is out 7/29,” she wrote before claiming she couldn’t wait to “finally start dropping these bangers!” Over the last few days, Banks has continually touted how great her new music video and song is online, claiming that it’s “honestly [her] best video this far” and that it will “make all your heads roll!!!!!” (Music Times)
Banks broke big news about becoming a free agent across Twitter earlier this month.
“IM ABOUT TO GET OUT OF MY DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THATS THE BIG SURPRISE!!!!!,” Azelia tweeted July 10.
“I’S IS FREE!!!!!!”
“I’m feeling like miss celie at the end of color purple.”
“Free at last.” (Azealia Banks’ Twitter)
Banks jumped onto her Twitter page to make an unexpected threat at her label last March.
“Album leaks starting April 15th.,” Azealia tweeted March 20. (Azealia Banks’ Twitter)
According to reports, she had some album promotion tour dates pushed back.
The news comes after Banks’ UK tour dates were postponed from September 2014 to December 2014 – not exactly a good sign. The shows were supposed to be in support of Broke With Expensive Taste, which was last confirmed to be released April 16. (Gigwise)
