Last August, Azealia Banks said on Twitter she had been working with Kanye West i n Hawaii. “When Kanye West Calls...... You Go To Honolulu,” Banks tweeted, excited. Now, the vocalist has given more details about the meeting, in an interview with Brazilian TV station Mix TV. “Working with Kanye was a lot of fun. I just kind of went out to Hawaii for vacation, and he has a studio out there," she said. "And he was just like, 'You should really come to the studio,' so I went to the studio and just worked it out.”
In the same interview, Banks also confirmed her rumoured collaboration with Lady Gaga, although, she explains, they never met in person. “I worked with Lady Gaga, but I worked with Lady Gaga from afar. We worked via email and via Internet. We have a song called 'Red Flame' and a song called 'Ratchet,' but I don't know what she's doing with it. She's going to release it when she wants to release it.”
Azealia Banks' own, delayed, official debut album, “Broke With Expensive Taste”, is now slated for release on 12th February, 2013.
