Azealia Banks Pays Homage to Rap Greats in ‘Chasing Time’ Video
She visually references TLC's Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and more
A week after releasing her debut album, Broke With Expensive Taste, with no prior warning, rapper Azealia Banks has now shared the visuals for the project’s most pop-leaning single, “Chasing Time.” Jeff Koons balloons and robed dancers fill a cavernous room as the Harlem MC clearly and reverently pays homage to Lil Kim, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and even — if you look closely — Lady Gaga’s Artpop cover. One intrepid Tumblr user has already created an impressive side-by-side visual comparison between Banks’ video and its influences. See that below, and watch the “Chasing Time” video above.
