On the off chance that Azealia Banks actually releases her debut album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ next January, as most recently promised, don’t go expecting there to be a collaboration with Disclosure on there. Even though she did collaborate with them, definitely.

Banks first referenced her hook up with the Disclosure boys back in June when she tweeted “Just had an amazing session with Disclosure!” But they initially played down their connection with the rapper, claiming they’d done more meeting than collaborating.

They tweeted back: “I think [Azealia has] kind of taken to Twitter quite heavily with the fact that she’s meeting with us. People now think that we’ve made the greatest song of all time, and it doesn’t even actually have a chorus yet”.

But the brothers Lawrence then backtracked (deleting that tweet) and indicated they had done some collaborating with Banks after all, leading her to tweet: “Disclosure apologised to me for the statements made yesterday. They were false. We actually DID work. Don’t know what made them say otherwise”.

But either way, however much meeting and collaborating took place, and even if a chorus was eventually found, that particular hook up will not now see the light of day. Well, not officially.

She recently told The AU Review: “I did something with Disclosure but they were, like, really rude in an interview, so I canned it. I might leak it, though to be honest, I’ve got better stuff on my record”.
