After the longest wait ever and the biggest album date push back in music history, Azealia Banks has finally dropped her highly anticipated debut album “Broke With Expensive Taste”.
The bad girl of music was quick to state just how much hard work she personally put into this record and how little support she received from both record labels Polydor and Interscope! The US artist took to twitter to clear a few things up and one who has never been afraid to speak her mind, we wasn’t that shocked to hear her voice her dissappointed.
With a negative tweet reading “@AZEALIABANKS: I know this is hella petty, but I need y’all to know that I a&r’d that record myself.. No help from polydor or interscope.” and a self praise tweet reading “@AZEALIABANKS: I am the executive producer, everything…. ,my blood sweat and tears literally went into the making of this album.” here at Flavourmag we were extremely interested in hearing the final product.
Impressed is not a big enough word in my opinion…this albums sound is dope and right on point! The first four tracks have a massive old school garage vibe to them which is pure genius. With the 90’s back in full swing and with acts like Disclosure making garage cool again there could not be a more perfect time to release music of this style. The beats go so hard and make the tracks perfect bangers for the popular club scene.
Of course the album features her bigges hit to date “212”. This being the first release from Banks was clearly an impressive move because it took the charts by storm and kept the name “Azealia Banks” in our memory. The track was named after the area code of Azealia’s home town in New York and samples track “Float My Boat” by Lazy Jay.
As the track list moves on it showcases the rappers more Hip Hop roots with a large element of RnB thrown in too. This is sure to grab everyones attention. BWET samples so many different music genres that no matter your preference or taste, it has something for everyone to enjoy. It is sure to become one of those albums that you always listen to all the way through without skipping a single track…just what an album should be!
With few single releases and little promo to none at all, the fact that the album has debuted at number three in the US iTunes chart (07/12/2014) it clearly shows that this loud mouth chick is still very very relevant. It’s a sign not to sleep on this female talent!
