Listen To “Jumanji,” The Dizzying New Track From Azealia Banks


Azealia Banks, the LaGuardia alum who’s made a name for herself in the hip-hop world thanks to her storming debut single “212” and her tendency to engage in real talk on Twitter (sparring partners have included Lil Kim, T.I., and Iggy Azalea), released a new single, “Jumanji,” today, in advance of her EP 1991. Produced by Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook, it’s a horn-spangled, steel-drum-tinged boast, with Banks’ voice taking on a harder edge that meshes well with the almost dreamlike sonics. Listen below.

And there might be a new version of it coming soon…

Aw. She was just excited! Who wouldn’t be with those horns?
