Produced by Galcher Lustwerk, the latest tease of the rapper's long-awaited LP cements her icon—and iconoclast—status.
Azealia Banks - F**k Him All Night
Azealia Banks is a seasoned provocateur. The New York rapper has been teasing her second studio album, Fantasea II: The Second Wave, since the release of her first single off the record, "Count Contessa." This was back in 2014, when the LP's release was scheduled for July of that year—a date that obviously came and went without an album. It's been promised and postponed on several occasions since then, though loyal listeners have made do with the phenomenal stream of house-influenced singles she's released in the interim.
The latest song to tide fans over, "F**k Him All Night," taps one of the smoothest hip-house producers around, Galcher Lustwerk, for the beat. It's a pairing that feels effortless. Lustwerk's tough but gliding production complements Banks' honeyed flow, as she kisses and tells about an alleged sexual affair with Kanye West. Controversy aside, the single shows her at her best: sexy, flippant and assured, with tasteful production to boot.
