VIDEO: Azealia Banks – 1991
by Jazmine Johnson
Azealia Banks vogues her way back in time in the long awaited video “1991” from her first EP. Finding similarities from Crystal Waters “Gypsy Woman”, the video feels slightly nostalgic despite the hard-pumping house instrumental sampled from Machinedrum’s “DDD”.
From the black bustier, the white blazer, her dark plum lips, fierce dance moves and raw, rugged lyrics; this video is everything. The re-emergence of hip hop and house music is slowly making a comeback and Azealia Banks’ prevailing individuality will be the driving force to make it happen.
