Azealia Banks has unveiled the video to her remix of Baauer's 'Harlem Shake'.

You can watch the video for the track below, in which the '212' rapper can be seen flipping her hair back and forth to the song while performing over the top of Baauer's production.

The original track was released by New York DJ Baauer last year (2012) but thanks to a new internet dance craze the track has made a comeback, and is expected to go into the Top 5 in this week's Official UK Singles Chart.

Banks and Baauer have been at the centre of an online feud after her remix of his track was mysteriously removed from Soundcloud. Banks sent him a Tweet asking: "Why you cockblockin tho??? Lmaoooo," and then, when he responded that it wasn't her track, she replied: "You're a pussy. You don't belong in hip-hop."

Perez Hilton, who was embroiled in a spat with Azealia Banks last month (January 6) after the rapper called Hilton a "messy faggot", intervened in the Banks and Baauer argument which has led to Banks having to once again defend herself for using a homophobic slur.

Banks reportedly enjoyed a sales surge following her last spat with Hilton, which started after her row with fellow rapper Angel Haze. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation group (GLAAD), however, subseqeuntly criticised her for the language she had used to abuse Hilton.
