New Music: Azealia Banks – ‘NEEDSUMLUV (SXLND)’

NEEDSUMLUV

With Kanye West in her corner and Coachella on the horizon, Azealia Banks is quickly making a name for herself. Now the Harlem rapper-singer, whose video for “212” has racked up 2.5 million views, keeps the buzz growing with her latest release “NEEDSUMLUV (SXLND),” on which she sings over Machinedrum’s “SXLND” house beat and samples Aaliyah.

“‘NEEDSUMLUV’ is about being a guy’s other girl,” explained Azealia. “It’s about knowing that ur number #2, but still sticking around in hopes of becoming #1.”

The 20-year-old newcomer announced that she will be signing her label deal this week and recently shot a video for her next single “Liquorice” directed by Lady Gaga’s stylist Nicola Formichetti.

    @Say Word?, Mariah? I don’t hear it at all. I do hear ALOT of M.I.A. And Santogold influence tho. Like I almost thought it was one of their records. I liked her back on her tracks like “L8R” or “Barbie Shit” she’s too hipster scum for me now.

    @ATT, Warning was NOT a single it was just a song she recorded months ago. And I Am Not The One was a buzz single and reached #82 on the Hot 100 on Billboard. Also i dont get why u Nicki stans hate Kim so much it is their beef not yours. Good music is good music no matter who the artist behind the lyrics is

    Kim Reply:

    @Aaron, I agree good music is good music no matter who the artist is…but Kim’s new shit sounds awful. Her voice sounds like a 60 year old hooker who chain smokes, she can’t rap well anymore, too much botox.
