Azealia Banks Debuts Liquorice Video

Azealia Banks has ridden an impressive wave of hype within the year or so. She's already dramatically quit Twitter (and returned) and said she doesn't want to rap anymore but nothing seems to be really slowing Azealia down. She's just released the EP 1991, a four track collection that serves up enough of a teaser for that full length effort.

After 212, one of the key Azealia tunes that's had tongues wagging is the buzzing, jumpy house-tinged track Liqourice. A confident, attitude laden number, it doesn't quite have the frenetic dancefloor blast of 212 but it still pops a mighty punch. 

The track's new video has British photographer Rankin helming a sexy, impressive clip that sees Banks in Wild West territroy while also finding time to work a pair of cutoff denim shorts. It's a polished, big budget video that lets Banks vamp it up to the camera and show off the sort of visual flair her myriad fashion shoots have had (her team-up with uber-stylist Nicola Formichetti helping her no end). 

Peep the video below:
