Azealia Banks Reveals New Track at Mugler Show: Is She Nicola Formichetti's New Muse?

Don’t let Harlem MC Azealia Banks’ pig tails, bangs and dimples fool you into thinking that her music is just as cute - it’s her potty-mouth lyrics and edgy beats that make her as brilliant as she is badass. It’s no wonder then that this week, Universal music have signed her. PLUS, the rapper is now officially on the fashion map after her song 'Bambi' was used as the soundtrack to Thierry Mugler’s menswear runway show this fashion week in Paris.

When Lady Gaga strutted her stuff to 'Born This Way' on Mugler’s Autumn / Winter 2011 catwalk in March last year, the fash pack went wild – even Anna Wintour mustered a smirk - but it seems that the brand's designer (and the singer’s BFF) Nicola Formichetti has found himself a new muse. After tweeting that he was listening to Azealia while getting ready for a shoot, we next heard news that the two were working together on her upcoming music video for 'Liquorice'. Excitement!

So with an upcoming single with the Scissor Sisters coming out next month, and overwhelming buzz being generated about the LaGuardia High School graduate (the same school that Nicki Minaj and Al Pacino went to, FYI), it won’t be long until Azealia Banks succeeds in world domination, in both the music and fashion industry. We wonder if she’ll become Karl’s next Florence? Have a listen to the track below and let us know your verdict...
