In Azealia Banks’ latest video, she shows off her cowgirl skills.
We’ve already told you why you need to turn on to Azealia Banks: She’s gunning for global musical dominance. Well if you listened to us, (you so should have,) then you’d have her 1991 EP, a short but sweet collection of on-fire dance hip-hop joints. “Liquorice” is the latest video from the EP, and it doesn’t disappoint knowing her raw style.
In the video, directed by Rankin and styled by Nicola Formichetti (high FASHUN, people!), Azealia channels her inner John Wayne… except way fiercer, riding around on horses and brandishing six-shooters. She’s also wearing American flag booty shorts and mad leather and eating Popsicles, which I’m not sure the Duke did either. The on-again, off-again vocalist (PLEASE, WE BEG OF YOU AZEALIA STICK AROUND,) is keeping her head focused on the music right now, specifically on her upcoming “Fantasea” mixtape. Whatever you say Azealia, we’ll do it. Just keep doing this.
