New Video: Azealia Banks – ‘Liquorice’

Published: Thursday 14th Jun 2012 by David

It’s finally here.

Yes, in what might see her surpass the success of ‘212’, Azealia Banks has released the clip for the Dance Rap anthem ‘Liquorice‘.

Tuck in below…


Classically Rankin but truthful to Banks, ‘Liquorice’ is one of a few videos out there with the power to stop a viewer in their tracks.

In short, it’s stunning-serving up enough beauty shots to up Azealia’s aesthetic stock, breathtaking when placed against the varying scenarios.

Though we’re not sure how well the cut will do Stateside, we’re sure the UK will eat it all up- especially if the clip picks up enough steam to land heavy rotation on the networks that matter.

Your thoughts?

    I like her , thanks for not giving us a gimmick

  4. Kingphoenix June 14, 2012

    OMY GOD! She did it! She gave us everything we could ask for…Her being absolutely fierce. Them other b****** could never.

    • POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) June 14, 2012

      she’s gonna be an ICON someday , i told y’all this the first time and you all made fun of me , she’s really cool.

      and she’s distinctive 😀 !! something is unique about her 🙂

      F*** NICKI MINAJ btw.

      • RLS June 14, 2012

        Hey hey, it doesn’t have to be Nick or Azaelia. I love them both. They’re different enough to coexist.

      • OpD2 June 14, 2012

        you are saying f-ck nicki minaj,ok then listen to banks song from 2:19 then listen to the beginning of this nicki minaj old song

      • Kingphoenix June 14, 2012


        I know, i been a big fan since i first saw her 212 video in the begining of the year, and immediately looked her music up despite all the bad press she was getting from the urban blogs and audience. She is a treasure. And i hope she does get to icon status…hopefully she doesn’t sellout and let the pressure of fame get to her. But she dosen’t take crap from no one so i have great fate in her.

        And i understand your anger at nicki because i used to be a big fan untill after Super Bass became big and that b**** went bonkers. I’m hoping though that with Azealia coming for them wigs that it will “inspire” her to stop the b******* and just make good music.

    Hey SkinTight…. F*** Off!!
    Ur Face i s boring lol

    • skintightjeans June 15, 2012

      boooo b****

  7. Benron June 14, 2012

    Oh please If Rihanna, Cheryl Cole or Katy perry did this they would be “Talentless h*** selling s**” but this chick does it and its genius, LIES TBH!

    • Richnblack11(Beyonce keep em mad) June 14, 2012

      no comment

    • Gaaglooo! June 14, 2012

      Agree!! This S*** Has Nonsense!!!!

    • Kingphoenix June 14, 2012

      Azealia is a rapper, not a pop star…the standards are way different. Look at Lil Kim and Foxy videos from the nineties…thats what these rap girls have to ascend to.

      For Rihanna’s and Katy’s they have to different standards, Like Janet Jackson and Madonna videos. Its a whole different ball game. Just because Nicki Minaj went and became a “pop diva” doesn’t mean that is the goail forever other rap girl.

      Usually i think you cute, and sometime you sound smart…but this comment shows how much rhitards are musically challenged.

  8. Benron June 14, 2012

    She IS much to skinny, dhoulfs ate that hot fog and 100 more!

    • Kingphoenix June 14, 2012

      Yet Rihanna is complaining about being a zero and her lack of ass, and using body doubles to look as if she has curves…#PoorDot

  9. $$$$ (Dollar$ign$kills) June 14, 2012

    Yes b****, yes!!! Miss Banks is giving all sorts of LIFE!! This video is fire and the song is addicting! Ugh, why cant the U.S catch on already?? Can you say EMAs/VMAs?? Its way to early to call her an icon, but Azealia has something the other b****** (Kreayshawn and Nicki) dont.

    I wish her and Iggy Azalea liked each other, they would make a sick ass song together. They both are bring new life to a dying field of music.

    • OpD2 June 14, 2012

      why are you dissing nicki,nicki haven’t said anything to banks why drama queens like you always trying to start sh!t,and you are putting kreay and nicki in the same boat,you are a f-cking haters enough said.

      • $$$$ (Dollar$ign$kills) June 14, 2012

        Cause Nicki is s***, just like Kreay.

        Iggy & Azealia>>>Nicki and Kreayshawn

  10. O_O June 14, 2012

    Boring but she has finally found her look. Stick with this look AB it looks clubkidpolishedchic.

  11. RLS June 14, 2012


    This song is seriously my song of Summer 2012. Nothing else has even come close.

    This chick is the next to pop. Kreashawn and that Australian girl could never.

    She is slaying every rap chick out there not named Nicki Minaj.

  12. Janetallday June 14, 2012

    I’m feeling this soooo much. It’s like she’s mixing rap with old school house music. Give me another single and I may buy her album.

  13. Bianca June 14, 2012

    Hi ummm Lady Gaga would like her American Flag print two -piece back from the Telephone video ,Xtina would like her chaps back from the Dirrty video and Pink would like her entire video concept back from her Trouble video and Ciara wants her wig back b****…..that is all

    • virtuoso intellect June 14, 2012

      you have no case b**** – DISMISSED!

      • DUH June 14, 2012

        Im a Lady Gaga fan but mother monster was not the first to wear an American flag top and shorts get over yourself the American flag print is in right now you can find it on shorts everywhere I guess if I decide to wear purple im copying off barney…

    • Kissy_Minaj June 14, 2012

      Hahaha see what it feels like when u all keep saying saying Nicki copy this one and that one? Feel the burn Azealia fans lol.

    • Kingphoenix June 14, 2012

      Don’t start with that s***. You better blame Nicola Formichetti because he styled the video…ain’t he an Gaga bffs at that. #theshade.

  14. virtuoso intellect June 14, 2012

    wow brilliant on every level. i was entertained thruout, she looks like she’s finally had a bath. her beauty is unmissable in the close ups. my only issue is that the songs sounds a bit too much like 212 and the referencing dint help matters there but brilliant nonetheless im really routing for this girl, she’s a breath of fresh air.

    SN: id love for her and Rita Ora to do a collabo. i can see their styles meshing seamlessly

    • Richnblack11(Beyonce keep em mad) June 14, 2012

      yasss , I was thinking the same AZ an Rita Ora

      • virtuoso intellect June 14, 2012

        u know what they say ….. great Beys think alike 😉

      • Kingphoenix June 14, 2012

        I said that a long time ago too…I think it was on the post about them getting Billboard Award nominations or something. There singing voices compliment each other as much as there unique style. But neither one of them can dance so that might be double akward. I’m ready for Bey and A. Banks to work together (my dream team)…though…Or Maybe A. Banks and Solange would be a better

        Yall know Azealia is part of the Hive right?

    • Kingphoenix June 14, 2012

      Thats like saying Up Grade U and Suga Momma sound too much alike.

  15. Truth June 14, 2012

    Ummm ok so Lady Gaga wants her American flag print two piece back from the Telephone video,Xtina wants her chaps back from the Dirrty video ,Pink wants her entire Trouble video concept back and Ciara wants her f****** wig back ….. B****** are so late this kind of music isn’t original this s*** has been around for years in the Gay Ball scene this b**** is not original ….so let’s not hype this b**** up she is doing a good job of f****** up her career before she even gets a charted song on Billboard this b**** is another Charles Hamilton she is her own worst enemy

    • Kissy_Minaj June 14, 2012

      Can’t stand the best bone in Azealia, but why do ni**as gotta compare everything every new artiste does? Like WTF nothing is new under the sun.

  16. DaHotNig June 14, 2012

    I don’t get it. I’m really trying to tho.

    • Gaaglooo! June 14, 2012

      You’re Not Alone!!!

    • LindseyMari June 14, 2012

      Same here. It’s mostly because I don’t catch 70% of what she’s saying though, LOL. It’s like Busta Rhymes gibberish, but a lot of people seem to be liking it.

  17. WHUT June 14, 2012

    I like.

    • Richnblack11(Beyonce keep em mad) June 14, 2012

      RIRI in a few month is going to look just like your gravatar lmao kiiiiiiiii kiiiiiiiiii

      • Kingphoenix June 14, 2012

        Except she wil be on a stretcher on a banna boat back to Barbadoes.

    • WHUT June 14, 2012

      Attention all Lemmings!!!!

      PLEASE NOTE that my reply section of WIN is a pro-literacy zone. Before you lay a hoof on the grounds PLEASE take care to brush up on your spelling.

      That will be all thank you.

  18. soulmusiclover June 14, 2012

    i think i like her! there s definitely something fresh about her, something different

  19. Benron June 14, 2012

    Nice effort?

  20. John92 June 14, 2012

    the video is amazin! but the song is just ok in my opinion.

  21. gia June 14, 2012

    I like it!!!!!

    • gia June 14, 2012

      Her and Teyana Taylor look alike

      • Kingphoenix June 14, 2012

        I said the same thing…and the both can rap and sing.

  22. lol June 14, 2012

    I like this very distinct and unique haters f*** off her post the girl did good

    • Trudi June 15, 2012

      not so much unique… distinct maybe. she’s just ripping the beats, melodies, and rhythms from the year she was born 1991.

  23. Ciara Stan 21 June 14, 2012

    yaasss! i love this girl! so much talent!

  24. jarel June 14, 2012

    The video was a little slow, but I really like her styling in this video!! And I love the song!!!

  25. Kissy_Minaj June 14, 2012

    *Yawn* Is the video done yet? No? *Goes back to sleep*

  26. Kingphoenix June 14, 2012

    Omg, this is like the first time i have seen Bey and Rih fan/stans like a similar artist in awhile…looks like Azealia will be getting a lot of coins.

  28. Nai June 14, 2012

    Quality over quantity. That’s what Banks has been doing. I appreciate the fact that she is taking her time and slowly releasing quality work. I am not a fan of hers (if she keeps this up and stops calling everybody a n***a and a b***h in her verses I just might become a fan) but I respect her grind.

  29. I cannot tell a lie… June 14, 2012

    I’m on her d***…period….

  30. Kissy_Minaj June 14, 2012

    Not checking for this Baphomet worshipper.

  31. QueenSize June 14, 2012

    The video is cool. I love it when rappers looks normal. It’s nothing spectacular like some of you are stating. I think her hair is entirely too lllloooooonnnngggg. Not one piece of licorice anywhere? A scene of her sitting in the house or barn or on the ground just chewing on a couple of pieces when of completed it. Nice.

  32. Roachycunt June 15, 2012

    This s*** is f***** wack

  33. catnipbitch June 15, 2012

    I love her but 212 was better

  34. Oggie ‘Singer’ June 15, 2012


  35. Chrishon June 15, 2012



  36. Todd June 15, 2012

    Good job!

  37. Mizz Fifi June 18, 2012

    Representing for the dark sistas, love it. I thought she looked busted in the 212 video with them nasty ass closeups of her mouth but she is giving me Naomi Campbell realness with this long straight weave.

    Love the 90s house beat, it gives me some C&C music factory vibes. Makes me wanna vogue or some s*** tbh. If she keeps putting out hot dance s*** like this I will Stan her ass hard.
