Azealia Banks has decided to can her much discussed Disclosure collaboration.
Sometimes discretion isn't merely advisable, it's absolutely necessary. When Azealia Banks and Disclosure hit the studio together, the musicians would no doubt have anticipated the scale of interest which would be levelled against them.
Speaking to fans on Twitter, Azealia Banks' revelation meant that Disclosure were then asked about the session. Playing down the project, the duo told 3voor12 that the interest was slightly premature:
"I think she’s kind of taken to Twitter quite heavily with the fact that she’s meeting with us [...] People now think that we’ve made the greatest song of all time, and it doesn’t even actually have a chorus yet."
As a result of this perceived slight, Azealia Banks has canned the project. Speaking to AU Review the singer said abruptly: "I did something with Disclosure but they were, like, really rude in an interview, so I canned it."
Admitting that she "might leak" the track, Banks added: "To be honest, I’ve got better stuff on my record".
The killer pay off line? It won't even be a B-side. "It can be an F-side, a fuck-you side."
