Azealia Banks has confirmed that she's been working with both Lady Gaga and Kanye West.

"I worked with Lady Gaga, but I worked with Lady Gaga from afar," she says in an interview with Brazil's Mix TV, which you can watch below. "We worked via email and via Internet. We have a song called 'Red Flame' and a song called 'Ratchet,' but I don't know what she's doing with it. She's going to release it when she wants to release it."

It also turns out that Banks hasn't just been working with Gaga, as she also confirmed that she'd been hanging out in the studio with Kanye West. "Working with Kanye was a lot of fun," she said. "I just kind of went out to Hawaii for vacation, and he has a studio out there," Banks said. "And he was just like, 'You should really come to the studio,' so I went to the studio and just worked it out."

Gaga previously hinted that she was working with Banks on Twitter. Banks tweeted: ''When Mother Monster calls shit is about to get very fucking real," to which Gaga replied: "Can you make "99 Problems" my ring tone for when I call you, and then shout BITCH AINT ONE at me when you pick up?"
