New Song: Azealia Banks – ‘Heavy Metal And Reflective (Snippet)’

Published: Sunday 27th Jul 2014 by David


Azealia Banks is back!

After cutting ties with ‘Interscope’ and touching down in the UK shortly after, the ‘Luxury’ rapper prepares for the release of her debut album, ‘Broke with Expensive Taste.’

Today, a snippet from its latest single was released via ‘Amazon’, giving fans just a taste of what they can expect from the project.

Is it any good?

Listen below…


While very few lyricists (male or female) can hold a light to the super talented Azealia, the above isn’t the business.

For, how does the rapper expect the general public to get behind and rap along to the cut when it’s impossible to make out what she’s saying.

By no means do we think she should “dumb it down”, but we’d say her best bet would be to recreate the genius that was her ‘1991′ EP, and return its House-inspired sound, universal themes and replicable flow.

Be sure to keep it locked on TGJ for ‘Heavy’ when it drops in full later today!

      I support interracial relationship. And you? If you are single and open to look for interracial partners,then don’t miss it. All members in this group believe Interracial relationship. That is –► ____ “MixedPartner.C❤m “….. ___~
      Why not google it and get more information about it? You can google-►Mixed Partner

    i don’t mind it, but lets be honest we all fell in love with 1991 EP
    she needs that house sound back

    Basura caliente.

    I like it but I’m a fan. I agree with the article the general public needs to hear some type of catchy hook or something. U can barely make out what she is saying. 212 was lyrically fast but u could at least hear something.

    • Yea ok July 27, 2014

      I take that back. I just heard the HQ full song. I LOVE it. It’s so good. I hope this does well for her but i think she is off to a good start. The song will be on iTunes tomorrow and video next week. That’s how u roll out a song when you’re doing it independent. And I love how she didn’t wait forever to release. She got off the label and a month later putting out music that will be lining only her pockets. Smart.

    She’s ahead of her time. She’s one of those artist, like Kid Cudi, that want to elevate Rap music, but get stagnate, because there’s no audience for it right now. Not only that, her delivery is creative and she needs a creative universal sound. This reminds me of “Massive Attack” by Nicki. She wanted something different…flopped…then settled with what was obvious. Azeala may need to do the same.

    Damn this song is really good. Even tho I don’t understand what the fukk she is saying. She has a big potential of taking iggy’s spot. If only she stopped beefing with people on twitter.

      She has no hope of taking Iggy’s spot, not as an indie artist while Iggy finally has a label and the industry supporting her. It took awhile to see that she has the it factor but they see it now and they are going to cash in. They saw that with Azealia and she burned those thoughts from all their minds. Azealia is the one who should be winning, not Iggy. It was Azealia who had the major label support and industry support while no one believed in Iggy and she was on an indie label. Azealia fell off to the point of no return. And even if she did, she doesn’t need to take Iggy’s spot. There can be more then two female rappers on the Hot 100. We’ve seen it before.

    Hold up now TGJ I like this…. My booty is bouncing by itself…… It’s a low quality snippet of a 30 second song and I heard everything she was saying fine, everything doesn’t have to have a pop/dance undertone. To be honest I’m not even a fan of this chick like that but this was hot!!

  8. Truth tea (take a sip) July 27, 2014

    Sounds promising.
    I’m excited for the video, she seems to be releasing this for love of art,
    As opposed to releasing it for a label forcing her ie ‘atm jam’

  9. indie July 27, 2014

    Why are people getting pressed, the snippit has been ripped from Amezon, where the sound is always to loud and it’s just 30 seconds, who said there was no hook? im not judging till i’be heard the whole track but i love the beat so far

  11. Suicide Blonde July 27, 2014

    Is this song related with Heavy Metal?

  12. Dev July 27, 2014

    Nah, I disagree TJG. The beat is dope and so is the flow. Tbh, i think she’s taking the M.I.A route and doing her thing, i think she is less thirsty for chart positions and more interested in respect as an artist. I actually cannot wait for the video.
    Iggy A might have chart positions and collaborations but she has no respect from her peers.

    • Commander of the RihannaNavy July 27, 2014

      You sound delusional. Iggy has gotten praise from Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliot, Da Brat, Angel Haze, and several other female rappers. Azealia has gotten some from Missy and that’s it. She isn’t respected by her peers or anyone in music for that matter. And most importantly, the general public.

      • YoursGrande111 July 27, 2014

        Her 1991 EP is a Critically Acclaimed smash. Even Nicki hasn’t got that acclaim yet

      • Commander of the RihannaNavy July 27, 2014

        Critically acclaimed based off 9 reviews isn’t really relevant. Besides, critics aren’t the same as your peers who are relatively in the same boat as you or veteran female rappers. Both groups have given Iggy praise. Both groups have feuded with Azealia.

      • Dev July 27, 2014

        If you say so, Although i’m sure that Nicki was shading her for not writing her lyrics and others were dissing her for her fake southern accent?

  13. YoursGrande111 July 27, 2014

    Am I the only one who think she’s underrated??

  14. YoursGrande111 July 27, 2014

    She’s developing a new sound something. She’s gonna be a pioneer if this house sound breaks to the mainstream. Good job Ms Banks

  15. Commander of the RihannaNavy July 27, 2014

    All of her fans claim this girl is talented but I have yet to see any talent they speak of. I’ve listened to her EP and her mix tape and I’m not impressed. Her lyrics don’t tell a story and she recycles her own lyrics and flow as well as from other female MCs. I’ve yet to find a single meaningful song in her discography or any song with some type of message. She’s just another rapper who relies on their flow and production to carry them over. The fact that everyone wants her to go back to her house sound proves that people only want a catchy beat they can twerk to and a flow to match it. And its funny how Azealia fans bash Iggy for the same reasons they love Azealia. They both need their production but Iggy can at least tell a story with her music. Her flow isn’t on Azealia’s level but Iggy is ahead lyrically in my book because her music has a story behind it with an encouraging message. I’ll take the story teller over the smoke N mirrors act any day. When Banks finds substance to her music I’ll give her some coins.

    Flow so sick, been a fan since Jumanji

  17. RICHIE_RICH July 27, 2014

    Left cheek , right cheek both cheeks . Me like

  18. #TeamTinashe Stan (BUY “2 On” NOW) July 27, 2014

    This is the problem! You little kids on here just listen to the beat and don’t pay no mind to the lyrics. I bet y’all didn’t even understood a word that she was saying.

    UTTER CRAP! I’m just saying…. she can do better than this.
