I know there’s a lot of talk about what our new summer anthem is going to be but I’m loving Azealia Banks’ “Jumanji,” which is a tropical, energetic track with a strong bass. The song, which was produced by Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook, practically screams summer with dance worthy steel drums and timpani hits.
“Jumanji” is the first preview from her forthcoming mixtape, Fantastic, which will be released this summer. Plus, we’re all waiting for her 1991 EP that will be out within the month.
The song is incredibly playful and though the lyrics aren’t necessarily prolific (“Real bitch, all day/Uptown, Broadway”) you can tell the girl is having fun.
