Azealia Banks Nabs Netflix Release For New Movie

Published: Monday 5th Mar 2018 by David

Azealia Banks has found a friend in the home-entertainment giant Netflix.

Find out how the artist has just gained access to all 118 million of the company’s subscribers below.

After she was allegedly attacked by the controversial actor Russell Crowe Azealia saw the future of her first feature film ‘Love Beats  Rhymes’ thrown in danger’s way when its producer RZA turned against her to support Crowe.

Unable to promote it traditionally, Banks was then forced to accept that the picture was to bomb at the box office even with performances delivered by Jill Scott, Common, Lorraine Touissant and Lucien Laviscount in its arsenal.

Stepping in to give the release a much-needed dose of life?

The movie is now available to view on the platform thanks to a deal it secured with Lionsgate. Good news, as the movie failed to make much of a dent commercially following its limited release in the December of 2017.

Ready to watch Azealia in dramatic action?

Watch here.


As an artist who has struggled to soar traditionally, Azealia may be on the cusp of discovering that teaming up with platforms like Netflix to develop original content is the best way to get her art to the masses.

We look forward to seeing what the coming year has in store for the star.

    That’s an interesting aspect I hadn’t thought of.., but after seeing how the team of Black Panther rolled en masse during the worldwide promotional campaign. There’s no way the crew of “Coco” could’be promoted their movie together considering how toxic their situation is.
