Azealia Banks has unveiled the video for her track ‘Luxury’.

Click above to watch the black and white video, which was directed by Clarence Fuller and sees the rapper and singer performing against the New York skyline to the Machinedrum produced track, which comes from her ‘Fantasea’ mixtape.

The release of the ‘Luxury’ video comes after Banks pulled her new single ‘Esta Noche’ on the day of release earlier this week (September 25) after its producer blasted her on Twitter, claiming she didn’t have permission to use the song.


The track was by Rotterdam-based producer Munchi and was due to be released as a single on Tuesday, however, this was scuppered after Munchi took to Twitter to claim the track had been prepped for release without his permission. He also claimed he was offered $25,000 and then $50,000 and a public apology in exchange for his cooperation, which he appears to have rejected in no uncertain terms in a string of tweets:

“No releasing my track, being a spoiled brat, releasing coverwork, release dates before even reaching out is a good look right?” he wrote. “Tell your camp the deal is off I don’t want your fucking $25.000. Fuck off. Go be a puppet bitch to someone else.”

Azealia Banks will begin her sold out UK tour at Manchester Club Academy tomorrow night (September 28). On October 13, Banks hosts her Mermaid Ball at the London Aquarium, which will see performances from Banks and surprise special guests.

Her debut album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ is slated for release in February 2013.
