Azealia Banks reveals details of first single from debut album
It's called 'Yung Rapunxel' and it's due out on February 12
Titled 'Yung Rapunxel', the track will be released on February 12. It will serve as the lead single from the rapper's debut album 'Broke With Expensive Taste', which is due for release this Spring.
Taking to Twitter this morning (January 28), Banks teased "BIG CHANGE OF PLANS", before posting the following tweet:
My first single is actually not going 2 be Miss Amor / Miss Camaraderie. It's goin 2 be a song called "YUNG RAPUNXEL" prod. By @lilinternet— YUNG RAPUNXEL (@AZEALIABANKS) January 28, 2013
Banks then posted that 'Yung Rapunxel' "will be released February 12, 2013" and re-tweeted a tweet from the @Azealianews fan account describing the track as "the lead single from @AZEALIABANKS debut album".
Banks has recently enjoyed a sales surge following her Twitter spat with fellow rapper Angel Haze, which then turned into a row with gossip blogger Perez Hilton. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation group (GLAAD) subsequently criticised Banks for calling Hilton a "messy faggot" during their online scrap.
