Azealia Banks' 'Broke With Expensive Taste' is a new kind of breakup album

As Azealia Banks made clear with her explosive lead single “212,” the Harlem-born rapper isn’t the type to mope around after a breakup. Like “212,” her new album Broke with Expensive Taste is a brash, bristly thing—heavy on the sex, light on the romance. The closest thing to sentimental is a song called “Soda”—but its successor, “Chasing Time,” dries its tears and seems to say, “We’re so much better than him.”

Broke with Expensive Taste isn’t a breakup album in the traditional (Taylor) Swiftian sense. Rather, it’s a breakup album of an entirely different sort: Azealia’s kiss-off not only to Universal—a relationship that ended this summer—but also to anything and anyone who tries to put her in a box and wrap her up for a wide audience.

Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra has just released the lyric video for her first single, “In My City.”

The song, off her upcoming debut album, represents Ms. Chopra’s first foray into music. She began her career as a model, winning the prestigious Miss World title in 2000. She then transitioned to acting, working steadily in Bollywood for several years before achieving critical success with 2008’s Fashion, which earned her a National Film Award for Best Actress in India. In 2011, she landed a record deal with Universal and started working with such hitmakers as Jay Sean and producer RedOne on her first album.

The single, which features a guest spot from Will.i.am, debuted earlier in September on the NFL’s Thursday Night Football and will serve as the official intro song for this season’s pregame show. Watch the video after the jump, and sound off in the comments.
