The 21-year-old Harlem native chatted with a Brazilian TV show about these latest tracks in particular: “Red Flame” and “Ratchet” with Lady Gaga and an untitled one with Kanye West.
“I don’t know what she’s doing with it, but she’s going to release it when she wants to release it, but I’m really excited about it,” Azealia said about her Lady Gaga collaborations that the two wrote together through email. Obviously she’s just in as much of the dark as we are regarding whether or not either will appear on Gaga’s forthcoming ARTPOP record in 2013.
When she was vacationing in Hawaii, Kanye, who was also working on his Cruel Summer album with G.O.O.D. Music at his studio on the island, invited Azealia to his space to cut something up.
Really hope these don’t stay vaulted and are thrown up online soon. Azealia’s hot right now and given their experimentation with their own sounds and interests in fashion this all makes pop music sense. How about all three of them in one song, though? Too much?
