New Music: Azealia Banks - 'Movin' on Up'
Azealia Banks is “Movin’ on Up.” Teaming up with Newbody, the Harlem spitfire delivers a house-inspired banger that blends rapping and singing over dance-ready production.
“I been getting cheddar since whenever,” boasts Banks on the high-energy track. “Ever since quarters in piggy bank / Now it’s pricey diamonds, feisty niña / Icy diva / ¡Hay que linda!”
A demo had been floating around before Banks released the final version. “Daaaaaaaaang,” she wrote. “Why they had to post my demo to streaming lol. Now it has to come out .. brb I added more new raps to it.”
“Movin’ on Up” is the first taste of things to come from Banks’ forthcoming album Fantasea II: The Second Wave, which is also slated to feature Busta Rhymes, Mel B, and more.
Recently, Banks promised that it would shake up the game. “Azealia Banks will have the album of the year across all genres,” she wrote. “I will have the best female rap album this year and for years to come.”
