Tel Aviv’s summer lineup heads off huge with a hot American rapper
Only 26 years old and she has already collaborated with Missy Elliot and Childish Gambino, remixed with Beyonce, Fall Out Boy, and Britney Spears, and held social media feuds with everyone from Russell Crowe to Sarah Palin. Azealia Banks’ performance should be one for the books. Her immense popularity exploded quickly and has the potential to get even bigger. She began releasing her music through Myspace as a teenager in Harlem and got a record deal at 17. Four years later, she won the Urban Music Awards’ best single, and today has over 148 million views on YouTube. Over these years Banks has only released one album, 16 singles, and two mixtapes, but soon she’s planning to release a second studio album, Fantasea II: The Second Wave.
