‘Count Contessa’ was produced by Lone, with whom Banks previously worked on her track ‘Liquorice’. Before she unveiled ‘Count Contessa’, Banks tweeted about the origins of the song. “It’s a song about a woman with with a man’s physical strength. Like, literally. Hahaaa,” she explained. “Count Contessa was a Dyke who won the fist fight with Muscle Mike.”

Banks’ album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’, was originally scheduled for release in September 2012 but has since been delayed on several occasions. The rapper has recently revealed that is now due to come out next January (2014).

Banks is expected to debut songs from the album during her one-off headline gig at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on November 30.
