Azealia Banks Bumps Debut Album To January 2015

Published: Monday 11th Aug 2014 by Sam

How to solve a problem like Azealia Banks?

It appears the answer is “delay”. Because, once again, that’s exactly what the femcee is doing to her debut album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’.

Details below…

Writing on Twitter today, the rapper revealed her plans for the set – specifying a release at the top of 2015:

Mucky mess doesn’t even cover the travesty that has been this three-year campaign; which is sad as it never “had” to be like this.

That said, given the minimal traction current single ‘Heavy Metal And Reflective’ is generating, a push-back was all but certain.

Given her talent and the allure of what she could be, here’s hoping the months ahead bring the clarity, backing, and banging material that will put Ms. Banks back on the right path.

Your thoughts?

    It doesn’t matter anymore…

    OH FOR F**** SAKE!!! I’ll need to try to live off Heavy Metal for the rest of the year!!!

  6. Beysus August 11, 2014

    Ugh I’m actually gonna cry….

  7. lewminous August 11, 2014

    This actually makes sense… She’s kinda just getting started with her 1st single just releasing. I’m not sure if Yung Rapunxel counts or not as it’s been a minute. It’s like she’s having to start her promo campaign over. That gives her a few months to set it up with a 2nd single too.

  8. Potato August 11, 2014

    LOL, girl. Just stop.

  9. Im Booked August 11, 2014

    She Doesn’t Know How Too Pick Her Singles 🙂

  10. #TeamTinashe Stan (BUY “2 On” NOW) August 11, 2014

    Probably still wants a label behind it to support it.

  11. CzarM August 11, 2014

    Heh. Only artists who the record label doesn’t care about, and whose albums are expected to flop, release albums in January/February — after the Xmas season when no one is interested in actually buying and stores are dead. Yeah, good luck with that.

  12. MisdamenorFan August 11, 2014

    Maybe she shouldn’t have burned all those bridges she would have a hot album out now. It’s too bad she is somewhat talented but that stank attitude of hers overshadows all of that. Maybe it’s time for some self reflection when you are known more for your “twitter beefs” than actual music.

    • Fancy BISH August 11, 2014

      I see no lies 😉 FOREVER KIIIIIII 😉

  14. former rihanna stan August 11, 2014

    It is over for her. She could not find any backing. She should get a jog as hipster DJ. They make good money. SHE is not gonna make it as rapper

  15. Indie August 11, 2014

    This makes sense, chances are with all the hype shes created independently with HMAR, she must have loads of majors, trying to snap her up, i think its healthy and smart for her to release a couple more singles over the course of the year, she’s a new artist, so no point in her releasing an album in the 4th quarter as thats when all the Major artist with major backing release there albums for the christmas rush as albums sell most in that period, in order for her album to get the attention it needs as a new artist releasing her first album January is a good choice!

  16. Dossome August 11, 2014

    Broke people have no business having expensive taste…release that s*** then retreat to your violated keyboard and keep trolling.When you finally figure out if this is what you wanna do,come back 50times more serious

    • tits mcgee August 11, 2014

      This read down is everything!! Kii!

  17. LB August 11, 2014

    I’ll be buying, she is very artistic, talented and a genius; she brings to hip hop a sound that hasn’t been tried nor heard before.

    Looking forward to it.

    • Fancy BISH August 11, 2014

      People use the word genius a little too loosely these days….

      If she’s a genius, where is her Billie Jean? Jesus Walks? Purple Rain? Miseducation? Super Freak lol? That bish ain’t no damn genius…she don’t even have a Gucci Gucci lol 😉 Rebecca Black has more hits! She’s artistic, I’ll give her that…like Massive Attack lol She’s also an example of when keeping it real goes wrong…

      • LB August 11, 2014

        Honey, you stan for Iggy, your opinion on hip hop music is non existent.


      • Fancy BISH August 11, 2014


        You thought you was cute tho. You really, really did…You tried. Thank LAWD I don’t stan for your heffa fave…

        BYE! 😉

      • FAF August 11, 2014


      • Fancy BISH August 11, 2014

        YAAAAAS, now Missy is artistic, talented and a genius!

  18. Commander of the RihannaNavy August 11, 2014

    Lol no talent, no label, and no release date. It’s over. Back to working at Starbucks for Azealia.

    • FAF August 11, 2014

      Now I thumbed u up but u got no biz talking about talent

  19. Joey August 11, 2014

    I dont really see what the big deal is. If the album was meant to out 4 years ago or last year as long as the music is good people will buy. She’s probably changed over the past few years when the album was meant to be released so maybe she’s just decided to keep the name and ya’ll will get a whole new Azealia.

  20. Rosie August 11, 2014

    It won’t sell more than 5K first week. No one likes her anymore after all of her Twitter feuds. I don’t even think her first EP sold 30K.

  21. Sass August 11, 2014

    She is much better artist than Iggy. Even though her attitude sucks.

  22. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) August 11, 2014

    Girl just put it out and let it flop already…

  23. BYE August 12, 2014

    it understandable. she basically restarted her campaign with HM&R. plus i dont think she is after mainstream success so chart positions probably dont bother her.

    but dead at yall saying “As the age old adage goes, the best meals take the longest to make.” on that Rita post but with AB its apparently an issue for taking so long. yall need several f****** seats

  24. The real xoxo August 12, 2014

    When artists claim a release date that’s over 3 months away, 99% of the time it means they have no clue but want to keep fans interested. Girl if it’s not coming out, just say so and drop a mixtape.
    I love Azealia but we all know when New Years comes she will claim a Summer release date.
    do what you have to do, but don’t lie.
