‘Heavy Metal and Reflective’ is a fresh cut from Azealia Banks, taken from her highly anticipated debut album ‘Broke with Expensive Taste’.
The tantalising 15-second teaser for the ‘Heavy Metal and Reflective’ video has already been viewed over 100,000 times online. You can watch the full video, now live, here:
The track is the first taste of new material from the recently independent 23-year-old rapper since she decided to part ways with her label Polydor/ Universal. Produced by Lil Internet who has previously worked with Azealia on ‘Yung Rapunxel’, ‘Heavy Metal and Reflective’ is available to download now via i-Tunes.
In ‘Heavy Metal and Reflective’ Banks references Tamagotchis and Michael Jackson’s “Bille Jean” amongst other things, over a synth heavy beat, and at just two-and-a-half minutes refuses to overstay her welcome.
Following her appearance at Wireless Festival this year, which received rave reviews for her notoriously infectious live set, Azealia Banks will embark on a UK and European tour this September (dates below).
