New Music: Azealia Banks – ‘Count Contessa’

Count Contessa

Azealia Banks hasn’t even released her debut, but she’s already working on her next album. Yung Rapunxel unleashes “Count Contessa” as the first offering from her sophomore album Fantasea II: The Second Wave. The project even has a release date of July 11, 2014.

“It’s a song about a woman with a man’s physical strength. Like, literally. Hahaaa,” said the Harlem rapper of the Lone-produced track. “Count Contessa was a Dyke who won the fist fight with Muscle Mike.”

Her debut Broke With Expensive Taste is due early next year. “SODA,” produced by SCNTST, will serve as the follow-up single to “ATM Jam.”

    @YoMansKeeper,
    Standard Azealia.
    The first 30seconds is the whole damn song.
    I would have to really listen to this to even pick up some of the lyrics (not going to happen).
    It’s a solid track, slightly better than some of the previous release but it’s not good enough to have her feeling some type of way which causes her to attack anybody that looks her way.

    WTF. I’ve never been a fan of hers because her music is wack, but why in the hell does she have a release date for her 2nd album, but has no release date for her 1st album. I mean really she pushed back her 1st album 30 times. She must be confused.

    I’ve loved almost everything she’s released but this sounds to familiar to Van Vouge and 1991.

    @fa, The comments on this post is not about the musical styles its about how confusing her releases are. On top of that she have a f-ucked up attitude. This sounds like everything else she releases. Britney Spears Work B-tch > Count Contessa. The fags gonna eat it up tho. *Plays Champion by Nicki Minaj Feat. Drake, Young Jeezy & Nas*

    @LuvKeisha, So, are you sayin’Azealia Wanks is the future? LMAOOOO! Her album has been pushed like 1k times. This is an ndirect way to tell her she will flop. Nicki is the future bae, get over it. Go crazy when she releases a song that charts please. *plays I Am your Leader*

  22. Truth

    Azealia has a very fresh sound. This sounds like early 90′s cece peniston. All you young cats wouldnt know nothing about that. This generation is so judgemental we have blogs and everyone has a negative opinion thats why these days suck compared to the way it use to be.

  23. BEDSTUYFLY

    I THINK SHE SOUNDS DOPE. ITS A NEW INNOVATIVE SOUND. THIS GIRL HAS A HUGE FOLLOWING OUTSIDE OF RAP-UP. DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE HATERS HERE.

  24. tell'em

    This is refreshing. Broads want to portray the fashions and stylings of an innovative artist, but very few can touch Ms. Banks. We got Lady CrayCrap re-releasing Madonna material and Iggy Azalia sounding like she suffers from autism and that’s who the kids think are “cool” or “unique”.
    Please go buy a Kelis or Janelle Monae album and culture yourself..

    [Reply]

    Andy Reply:

    @tell’em, she is NOT refreshing. I’m sorry to break your bubble but she has the same flow in every song of her and she is barely a lyricist, which is not bad but is not enough to compete in hip hop.

    Dee Reply:

    @Andy, Barely? Go read her lyrics and compare them to alot of male rapper lyrics. She can keep with the best of them. She’s a real lyricist. Not a fan of Azealia’s but a lover of music and a wordsmith she is.

    LOL Lyrics…..right. Her music is retarded and you are just afraid to admit it.

    @Dee, How can she keep with the best of them when none of them pay her any mind. I never heard a Black Album quality song of hers. Soo try again.

    @tell’em, Sure, that’s why she sounds the same on every freaking song she releases. #oops

    umm no, this shit is definitely waaaack. forget all the bullshit about her attitude, her confusion, this is just bad music…period. Anyone who is championing this is still on the Azealia Banks hype wagon. And trust me that wagon is nearly empty.
    If her shit is so good, how come no radio station is playing it? If she’s the next Nicki, how come her song with Pharrell isn’t even in the top 100 rap songs on itunes and the shit just came out? This girl was internet hype and she clearly just loves to see her name in print so she releases all these mediocre songs because she knows blogs like this are starved for content and will post anything.
    Prediction: Her label drop her when her album flops because they probably paid to much to sign her in the first place. I bet at this point they wishing they never even signed her.

    @AZEALIAMOTHER, nice grammar. your dumb-ass explains why you got such a dumb-ass of a daughter. if she didn’t bother people on twitter she wouldn’t even get any press. she is desperate to reclaim her 15 seconds of fame two years ago. none of her tracks are poppin. radio aint playin it and people aint buyin it. check the facts because the only one who will be working at mcdonalds will be your daughter when her short-lived career ends. you probably aren’t even her mother anyway.

    All yall Nicki stans are acting like Pink Friday was never pushed back and Massive Attack and Roman in Moscow never happened….. oh, let’s not forget Nicki did a song with Jeffery Star, and if you have no idea who that is look him up LOL. It’s called Lollipop Luxury

    Righteous Reply:

    @Nick, no my dear, it’s called fresh out of ideas…. And that’s being kind…..y’all really need to check yourselves. She was hot for a second ….a blip. Around jumanji and fcuk up th fun since that point ,and that point alone, she’s been shovelling sh!t and digging that hole deeper. You seem to forget that y’all stans were banging on about how she’d finally come with acclaim when gaga dropped her wack assed ratchet track. Well since she’s been dropped off that track……My QUESTION to you is ……WHAT THE FCUK SHE GONNA COME WITH NEXT THAT’S GONNA DO SH!T for a career based on BULLSH!T tracks and WASTEFUL beefs. Y’all should hold you collective breath until Angel Haze drops Dirty Gold.

    @Righteous, you dumb ass bitch the song has a creative meaning behind it. It’s actually about Count Contessa being stronger than Muscle Mike, aka woman can be more powerful than men, meaning it’s a female empowerment song. Shut the fuck up. Angel’s album is going to flop. No one knows who the fuck that bitch is

    BITCH……IF you think that slack hood rat ……who even though had potential, is attempting to empower women with this mogadon collection of bullshit statements ……well then bitch….read a book.You really need to address the subject of which you speak….because that bitch has not tried to empower anyone but herself. You MUST have something more than a, alleged……….VERY!, committee of obviously SPENT ghost writers ….wacked management and quite frankly SH!T record company. I always find that TRUTH however painful should be ,in time a comfort to you! On the subject of ANGEL HAZE !AGAIN, CHECK YOURSELF ……..YOU’RE lack of awareness of what constitutes a DOPE…..On a higher level….female rap ARTIST is LACKING……..EDUCATE yourself…….BITCH ASSED NO SENSE FOOL?
