Yesterday, Azealia Banks released the video for her track LUXURY from her FANTASEA mixtape. I can honestly say I have not gotten through that whole mixtape in one sitting, and have been repeating my favorites since I downloaded it. LUXURY isn’t one of my favorite songs, but I can appreciate the flow and lyrics.
The video is set of course in Azealia’s hometown of New York City. The harlem rapper spends most of her time on top of a building with a great shot of the Empire State Building behind her. Azealia’s dancers from her 1991 video made another appearance doing some old school vogue moves. I don’t know why her dancers give me such life, but they do.
This video was full of great black and white beauty shots of Azealia. I don’t know if someone beat her face for sugar, spice, and everything nice or if her skin is actually that porcelain, but either way, I LIVE. She’s really a pretty girl and her music is definitely growing on me. I believe she’ll be a star very soon, if not now. Even after all the twitter beefs and angst, this girl knows her music.
Check out the video after the jump and post your thoughts. What’s your favorite FANTASEA track that you’d like to see made into a video next? I’d definitely like to see what they’d come up with for FIERCE.
