Azealia Banks was among the acts named in the BBC‘s annual list of artists tipped to break through in the following year. She features in the BBC Sound of 2012 Longlist along with the likes of Niki & The Dove, Spector, Flux Pavillion and Jamie N Commons.


She is currently working with UK producer Paul Epworth on new material and plays alongside Two Door Cinema Club, Metronomy and Tribes on the NME Awards Tour 2012, which takes place in February.

Last week Mumford and Sons‘ keyboard player Ben Lovett called Azealia Banks‘ single ‘212’ “mindblowing”. The co-founder of the Communion record label also called the song “incredible” when he was asked who his and bandmate Marcus Mumford’s favourite artists of 2011 were. Lovett told MTV News: “I just heard an incredible song by Azealia Banks called ‘212’… [It’s] mind-blowing.”
