For a lot of reasons, it seems less and less likely that we’ll hear Broke With Expensive Taste, the long-in-the-works major-label debut from Azealia Banks, anytime soon. But she’s already announced a possibly-fake release date for her next mixtape, and it’s almost a year away. Banks claims that Fantasea II: The Second Wave, the follow-up mixtape to last year’s Fantasea, is coming next July. And to lend some credence to those claims, she also posted a new song called “Count Contessa,” a smooth dance-rap track with a gorgeous house beat from the producer Lone. Listen to it below.
If we believe Azealia Banks, Fantasea II: The Second Wave is out 7/11/14.
