Azealia Banks has claimed that Samantha Cameron is a big fan of her summer 2011 smash '212'.

The rapper wrote on her Twitter feed last night that she had met the Prime Minister's wife, who told her she "loves" the track – which is possibly one of the most brilliantly explicit in chart history with lyrics focusing on cunnilingus, gang violence and homoeroticism.

"Just met Samantha Cameron... She told me she loves 212...... *mind blown*," Banks wrote last night. She added: "Samantha Cameron is the Michelle Obama of Britain… This is actually crazy right now." The pair are thought to have met at London Fashion Week.

David Cameron's musical tastes are a safer option, however, with the PM admitting to be a fan of Band Of Horses and Lana Del Rey. The Camerons also recently picked Mumford And Sons to play at the White House in front of the Obamas.

Banks, who topped the NME Cool List in 2011, is set to release debut album 'Broke With Expensive Taste' on February 11, 2013. The rapper will also embark on an 11-date headline tour of the UK this autumn kicking off in Manchester on September 28.

Earlier this month, she hinted that she may be working with Lady Gaga.
