The Harlem rapper revealed on Twitter on Tuesday (June 10) that Fantasea is 18 songs long. “15 Azealia Banks originals and 3 remixes,” she wrote.
“I originally started this mixtape with the intention of letting go a ton of old ideas… like songs I started writing but never finished,” she continued in a series of tweets. “My ideas and concepts started to develop, so I changed the title and began to try & make the project more cohesive. Fantasea is almost kind of a first album of sorts….but it happened by mistake…. It’s weird. This is a test run… I tried a lot of cool things… Sounds I thought were progressive, beats made by close friends, different flowsss.”
Finally, Azealia bursts into nervous Internet giggles. “Lololololol I hope you guys like it! I’m nervoussssss.”
