There was a time when Azealia Banks was known as the world's most promising up and coming rapstress, but a lot has happened since then. She signed with a label, released a couple of not-so-successful singles, got in more than a couple twitter fights, left the label and started over independently. The songstress has now dropped the follow-up to her last single, "Heavy Metal And Reflective", titled "Chasing Time", and it's actually pretty good.
The track serves as a house-influenced dance number and she manages to sing over it, along with delivering her rap verses. It's really groovy and you can make a proper jam out of it. The Ronny “Flip” Colson, Oak and Steve Mostyn-produced cut is definitely a move into the right direction, as you could easily hear it on some dancefloor playlists and shake your body to it. It's not all funk and groove though, as "Chasing Time" is actually a break-up tune. "My attitude is bitchy, but you already knew that/And since we can't get a room, I think we should both move on" she raps.
"Chasing Time" comes straight from Azealia Banks' long-awaited debut studio album, Broke With Expensive Taste. The rapstress parted ways with label Universal Music back in summer and has been an independent artist ever since. Rumor has it, she might just have signed with Sony and preparing to release the record early next year.
For the time being, give "Chasing Time" a listen and get into the groove.
