Azealia Banks – “Barely Legal” [LISTEN]

 

Azealia Banks is back in the news, but it doesn’t involve any beef, this time. The Harlem rapper, vocalist and Twitter sh-t talker just dropped a new song, “Barely Legal,” and also revealed the release date for her proper lead single, “Yung Rapunxel,” later this month.

Banks’ new song is actually a cover of rock band The Strokes’ tune of the same name off their Is This It (2011) album. Her version is produced by Lindberg Palace and was actually debuted on New Zealand radio. What, you thought she was still local?

Earlier in the day, Banks had taken to Twitter, where else, to share a release date for the proper first single from her forthcoming Broke With Expensive Taste album. “HA!!! F-ck!!! Label Just gave me a release date!!!!!! #YUNGRAPUNXEL goes to iTunes on MARCH 26th,” she tweeted. “There will be snippets !! And an AWESOME video directed by @JAMsutton !!!!!”

Be warned, Banks is more vocalist than rapper on this one. Listen to “Barely Legal” below.
