    I like this! Very creative and different! She also did say the song has a lot of the same screaming style she did in 212, so I guess the scream face works! Excited to hear the single!

    Reminds me of Angel Haze’s artwork for her EP New York. This will flop.

    Hopefully the single is crazy as the cover =). To people who say it is a stupid cover stfu. At least she did something unlike other covers that just have the name of the songs on it.

    I guess Rap-up didn’t like my comment about this cover not being original or creative since Madonna did something very similar on her bedtime story video back in 1994, because it got deleted.

    She stated that “Yung Rapunxel” was the dark sinister screamo version of 212. So the album cover does it justice but it doesn’t change the fact its scary as fuck. But I think thats what she was aiming for “Luxury -Witch” “Spook you with spells” “I’m spooky as fuck” etc. Her art was always dark and twisted(Fantasea). So I am looking forward to her first “Era” in the music industry. I hope the single is as good as this cover. *screaming yungrapunxel in the ear*

    The cover art definitely isn’t beautiful but industry standards but it speaks to the emotions she is trying to express in the song (I can only assume since it hasn’t been released yet). I think it’s dope.

    The black, grey and white color scheme as well as the font remind me of Gaga’s Fame Monster.

    I love Azealia and can’t wait for the album to come out!

    @Kortney, damn, it’s true. The contrast and deepness of the black in the photo is very remindfull of Fame Monster

    Unoriginal. Hope the single makes up for the lack of creativity. Since this trick talks a lot of mess about nothing.

  29. Brass_knucklez

    I love that she’s not trying to be just another pretty face to sell her music. But instead just letting her music and art speak for itself. That takes balls and integrity. I approve.

    I’ve never seen something like this in a single cover art, so I don’t understand the “unoriginal” comments. Azealia is doing her thing, I mean, look at her. I’m very very excited about her album

    @NickiLyrics, She’s not a Nicki imposter!Let’s don’t mention that Nicki’s whole career is based on Lil Kim’s career!

    [Reply]

    NickiLyrics Reply:

    @A Bad Bitch, you guys talk about how nick career is based on Kim. Um no there’s differences. Nicki does stuff Kim wouldn’t. But at the end of the day she shouted Kim out and paid homage. Azealia went to the same school as nick, Mac lipstick like nick, sings and raps like Nick, make weird faces like nick, and has alter egos like Nic. & one of her alter egos is a boy just like Nic. Which is ROMAN! Imposter like I said. Then she tried to start beef with nick on twitter to get her name out and got ignored! Ha Nicki ain’t stupid.

    A Bad Bitch Reply:

    @NickiLyrics, So what if she went to the same school with Nicki?Everybody that went to the same school with Nicki copies her then!”& one of her alter egos is a boy just like Nic.” You’re wrong.Yung Rapunxel is a female,not a male like Nicki’s Roman Polanski alter ego!Azealia doing crazy faces?This was the only picture in which Azealia did a crazy face and at the 1991 video!

    Those comments about Sticky Collage (Collaj) are getting annoying!Her slaves/trolls (a.k.a. “barbz”) need to get life!They have nothing else to do but to come on other posts and to hate on other rappers!If they want to talk about Nicki they should go to the posts that are about Nicki!This post is about Azealia Banks and only Azealia Banks!

    Nicki is just more famous than Azealia Banks because Nicki has been singing phew years before Azealia!

  46. TrinaFan

    Hey everyone is influenced by others but this bitch is just straight up taking the exact style from that era. At least some of these artists who are so called “copycats” change it somewhat to make it their own. I mostly don’t like her because of the way she comes at all these females ( Iggy, Kim, Nicki, Kreayshawn, Angel Haze, Shystie, and I’m sure the list goes on). It’s def not a good look especially as a new artist. She turned me off of her music from the beginning from her attitude & disrespect to other artists. she may be a bitch but karma’s an even bigger bitch.
