Azealia Banks Announces North American Tour and Shares Details About Forthcoming Album

Get ready everyone, Azealia Banks is coming to a city near you! The Harlem femcee announced that she is hitting the road for a North American tour and also shared details about her forthcoming album that’ll be different from the rest.

Beginning October 3, Banks will be taking her talents to several cities including Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Las Vegas and more. The tour is set to conclude on October 28 in San Francisco. In 2016, Banks released her mixtape Slay-Z and since then she’s been flooding the hip hop circuit with tracks including “Chi Chi,” “Crown,” and, most recently, “Escapades.”

After a show in Hollywood, California, the “212” rapper sat down with HipHopDX to share details about her forthcoming album – saying it will be inspired by jazz music. “There’s a lot of jazz influence on a lot of my music. Even on ‘212: A-yo.’ A lot of people didn’t even know that was me singing. I’ve heard it a lot.”

If you think she’s just adding jazz to her musical palette, think again! When asked about her interest in creating a rock album, Banks simply said: “I don’t know what I’m doing. I might do both.”

Although there has not been any details about her album, tickets will be available on her website soon. Be sure to check out her tour dates below!
