Video: Azealia Banks – ‘Luxury’

Azealia Banks

Azealia Banks is in an Empire State of mind in the slick black-and-white video for “Luxury,” the first visual from her mixtape Fantasea. The Harlem firecracker rocks a cowboy hat and suspenders as she parades around the gritty streets of her hometown in the Clarence Fuller-directed clip.

Meanwhile, her single for “Esta Noche” has caused quite a bit of controversy. Producer Munchi has stopped the song from being released to iTunes, claiming that Banks took his beat without permission. She later offered him $25,000 and a public apology, which he declined.

“good luck being a dickriding, trackstealing, sorry excuse for a artist,” he tweeted. Have fun with the fame – it’ll get back at ya.”

She will go in front of the lens today to shoot a video for “Atlantis,” also off her mixtape.

    @thefollowerofthesun, I have a real legit question. Is she suppose to be a singer or rapper? Because if she a rapper she SUCKS! But as a singer she’s GREAT! I love her voice!! Its nice. I hope she just sticks to singing because she sounds amazing!

    With all that’s lovely about her, I still must ask,Why does Azealia look so “high-end” & fashion forward in her music videos and so damn tacky on the red carpet?

    love it. who cares if she stole the beat. its a dog eat dog world. its show business. get revenge by being better than her. good luck tho, this girl is FIRE. even this video which she no doubt wanted to be simple and understated.

    @deelee, Do you understand the music business? You can’t use other artists’ beats without approval. Think about what you typed. “get revenge by being better than her.” WHAT! SMH

    She’s a great artist, i can’t wait for the first album. I just don’t want her sound to change its so unique and perfect and im glad interscope gives her and other artist such as gaga a chance to do their music without too much interference.

    She used the beat on a mixtape…that means there was NO Monetary gain, therefore it wasnt stolen, people rap on other peoples beats all the time..why this is diff. is because she wants to release it to iTunes, and he feels as if he didn’t get the cred he deserved.

    @Lawd A Mercy, bingo.
    munchi himself did not ask the permission of montell jordan or claudja berry when he did his remix so this whole thing is hilarious.

    azealia cleared with montell and claudjia….AND credited munchi when the mixtape came out.

    what does this guy want? i don’t get it.

    - At least Nicki can ACTUALLY release her tracks my dear. Unlike AB, My Queen doesn’t steal tracks and try to profit from it. I know you saw the ‘Esta Noche’ producer clock her. Don’t do it.
