Azealia Banks Brings Mermaid Ball to L.A. [Video]

Azealia Banks made waves when her Mermaid Ball took over The Fonda Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday night. Following sets from Maluca, Gita, Kingdom, Charli XCX, Rye Rye, and more, the hip-hop dynamo lit up the stage in a scandalous fuchsia show-stopper with starfish pasties that would make the Little Mermaid blush.

With the words “Fantasea” spelled out in balloons over the stage, Banks kicked off her 45-minute set with “Fuck Up the Fun.” She performed “Liquorice” off her EP 1991 and new material from her mixtape Fantasea including “Jumanji,” “Aquababe,” and the Montell Jordan-sampled “Esta Noche.” Blasts of confetti fell from the sky onto the sea of fans as she closed with her salacious single “212.”
