Lady Gaga & Azealia Banks Collaboration ‘Red Flame’ Surfaces Online

Published: Sunday 14th Aug 2016 by Sam

Remember when Azealia Banks was rap’s new “it chick”? Recall that brief window when her Twitter wars hadn’t eclipsed her star?

Well, we do.

There existed a short spell of time (following ‘212’) when the New Yorker was the name on everyone’s lips. Rumors of high-profile collaborations were plentiful, yet many never surfaced. A fact which left folk wondering whether it was her attitude or creative differences that caused the canning/s.

While many of those questions remain unanswered, one of her would-be partner’s has been revealed as none other than Lady Gaga.

A rough demo of ‘Red Flame’ – a song the pair collaborated on – surfaced today. And it makes for a unique listen.

Word has it the track was recorded during the recording sessions for Gaga’s ill-fated ‘ARTPOP’ album.

Take a listen below…

Via Twitter:

Granted Gaga’s parts played like the audio equivalent of a rough sketch that would be revisited in more depth later, we’re liking what the track was shaping up to be. Especially from Azealia. She rode the beat like a champion jockey.

Fingers crossed LG5 sees Mother Monster continue to veer outside of the expected. As for Ms. Banks; we just hope she simmers down with the theatrics and antics so as to let her light shine. Because for all her shenanigans, we don’t feel all is lost.

Your thoughts?

    I don’t even like these ladies, but I kinda hear something interesting going on in all this noise. I just didn’t care for the last portion (about 30 seconds), but it’s definitely a rough draft!

      “it’s definitely a rough draft” LOL love it..

    actually sounds kinda hot, with the right video, this could banged.
    and do note that this probably wasn’t the finalized version.
    So sad, Azealia really ruined her career with her bad attitude. Womp.

    This could have been a big hit for Gaga and possibly the hit Azealia needed to go mainstream. I like what I’m hearing even tho it ain’t finished. Wonder what the final product would’ve sounded like.

    Two attention wh0res. I never understod the buzz of Banks, I never understand what she’s rapping about and her music is rhythmless IMO. For Gags, some of the poorest writing in music I ever heard.

  7. Mark August 14, 2016

    Yes!! Clock em Mark! Two desperate whores with meaningless music.

    AB’s part sounds nice.

    They’re both desperate.Gaga is trying to save her flop career and Az is trying to make something happen.The GP has moved on, bye gag.

    Hmmm a little dancehallish pop club track. Such a shame the collab never went anywhere but moving on… AB’s finna SLAY with Fantasea II then Business & Pleasure then her first feature film Coco! You heaux are gonna fall in love with AB. She’s a passionate artist with an unparallel level of creativity who breathes life into the female rap game.

    Ummmm lol. Nothing im into. But after an official release, I could imagine this hitting it big in night clubs, and strip clubs all over. It gives me that after dark vibe…

    Gaga didn’t release this because it sounds like AB dominated this song. How can the rapper have a better voice?
