Azealia Banks – Anna Wintour
Azealia Banks channels one of her heroes on “Anna Wintour.”
Azealia Banks – Anna Wintour – While her antics have occasionally left fans scratching their heads, the fact remains that Azealia Banks is undeniably talented. True, she may be addicted to beef, and continues to fire shots at Cardi B at any opportunity. Yet perhaps there’s a method to the madness. After all, her upcoming album Fantasea II is slated for a June release, and the rollout is about to begin. Enter the Junior Sanchez produced “Anna Wintour,” the project’s first official single.
Prior to dropping the track, Banks shared a lengthy explanation on its history. “I wrote this song about finding myself and finding God. Not at all specific to any religion, this song was written to embody the feeling felt when you connect with the universe,” wrote Banks, via Instagram. “I relate to Anna Wintour So much as a strong, powerful and larger than life soul in a petite, tidy and feminine body. While others may see Anna as intimidating , I see a woman who was born into this world with an absolute certainty about her place in it.”
For those who don’t know, Wintour is the notorious editor of Vogue magazine, who played a pivotal role in inspiring the Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway film The Devil Wears Prada.
As the valley fills with darkness
Shadows chase and run around
(I can make them stop for me)
And no lamb, no savior’s shelter
I’ll be better off alone, I’ll walk at my own pace
