Chasing Time - Azealia Banks

Song: Chasing Time
Artist: Azealia Banks
Album: Broke With Expensive Taste

Azealia was signed to Universal Music for two and a half years and couldn't get her debut album out.  After many delays, and the glimpses of her potential waining, Interscope finally dropped her in July.  Since she released a new track and video "Heavy Metal and Reflective," and now a new track; "Chasing Time" which heavily hints at her time with her former label.  And it's fantastic.

"Heavy Metal and Reflective" came from the darker side of Azealia, the one that created the brash, loud, and noisy "Yung Rapunxel," and didn't quite grab me.  But it's been a slow-burner for me, and just last week I was playing it a bunch, finally hearing how strong it was... just in time for "Chasing Time" to come out of nowhere, and it's an instant one.  (Check out the "Heavy Metal" video below, it's a good one.)

We still don't know when the debut Broke With Expensive Taste will finally come out just yet, but it's clear we can't count this girl out just yet.
