Azealia Banks Hits The Studio With Dr. Luke, Rock City And Cirkut
Azealia Banks is perhaps better known for her no-holds-barred Twitter game than music career (she has logged one minor UK hit since 2011), but that could be about to change thanks to an upcoming collaboration. Producers Rock City, who have worked with everyone from Beyonce to Justin Bieber, posted a pic with the femcee captioned “#WeComing #WeWorking.” Oh, super-producer Dr. Luke and cohort Cirkut were also in the room.
It’s good company for the rap diva, who released much-delayed debut LP Broke With Expensive Taste independently in 2014 after losing her major label deal. However, Azealia’s profile has skyrocketed since then due to excellent album reviews and high-profile beefs with fellow rappers Iggy Azalea and Kendrick Lamar. The involvement of Dr. Luke (Katy Perry‘s “Dark Horse” and Miley Cyrus‘ “Wrecking Ball”) suggests the 23-year-old is now willing to embrace a more commercial sound in order to take her career to the next level.
